In Honoring the Body, Stephanie Paulsell speaks to those who have ever wondered how to celebrate the body’s pleasures and protect the body’s vulnerabilities in a world that seems confused about both. What we need, she shows, are practices that honor the body.

Paulsell invites readers to explore how we might honor the body in daily activities—bathing, clothing, eating, working, exercising, loving, and suffering—seeking wisdom from scripture, history, and contemporary experience, in story and song and poetry.
