Do we really have rocks and sand in our head? Where is our detox center? How fast does an eye blink? What is a telomere? Why do we dream? The Bible tells us that we are created in the image of God and are “fearfully and wonderfully made.” But have you ever really peered inside the human body, pondered the details of that creation, and considered the wonderment of its design? Amazing Grays reflects on the anatomical and physiological complexities of the human body and provides a spiritual perspective that will leave you marveling at God’s creative power. From conception to death, each of us grows and develops as a unique organism that fulfills the potential God instills in us, not just as physical beings, but as members of His spiritual body.
