IN A RECENT SURVEY, 48 PERCENT OF AMERICAN WOMEN SAID THEY FELT “WHOLESALE DISPLEASURE” ABOUT THEIR BODIES. Many of the rest disliked some part of their appearance, such as their thighs, tummy, or hips. Meanwhile, most Christian women recite what they’ve been taught to believe: how you look doesn’t matter; inner beauty is what counts. The truth is, few women know what the Bible really says about beauty, so we’re at a loss when a daughter reveals an eating disorder, a friend says she hates her body, or we find ourselves anxious about another birthday or another ten pounds. Why Beauty Matters explores up-to-the-minute research that has made Newsweek headlines, delves into the breadth of biblical wisdom about beauty, and listens to real women as they struggle with the tough issues that make physical appearance one of the most important spiritual issues of our lives.
