Dr. Paul Brand, son to missionary parents, was a world-renowned hand surgeon and pioneer in developing tendon transfer techniques for use in the hands of those with leprosy. He trained in medicine at the University College Hospital in London and and later gained his surgical qualifications whilst working as a casualty surgeon in the London Blitz. After visiting a Leprosy Sanatorium at Chingleput, he was motivated to explore the reasons behind the deformities of this disease. A donation from a missionary woman helped him establish the New Life Rehabilitative Center, which helped dispel the stigma of leprosy amongst medical professionals. He authored and coauthored several books, including Fearfully and Wonderfully Made and In His Image.

Amazing book! Very in depth and descriptive. Awesome book for those who love bioloy.
This book will change the way you look at everybody.
This is such a wonderful book, which is quite ironic considering the same word being a part of the title. He makes many analogies based on his history of working with the human body and being a follower of Christ. The analogies are eerily perfect, which seems to say that the church body is meant to be looked at in accordance with our body so that we can draw conclusions as to how to react in different situations. Lovely book by a lovely man.
