Scientist, physician, and pastor Stephen Ko explains how to live and worship incarnationally and glorify God with our bodies.

Many of us don't see much connection between spiritual and physical health. We say grace before digging into greasy, fatty meals we know are bad for us. We read Scripture on our phones before switching to social media feeds that hijack the neural circuitry in our brains. Or we take our physical health too seriously, distancing ourselves from the sick and the needy whom Jesus embraced.

On his journey from pediatrician to public health officer for the CDC to senior pastor of the largest New York Chinese Alliance Church, Stephen Ko has seen that these divisions between physical and spiritual health are artificial. In Faith Embodied, he reminds us that our "bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit" (1 Corinthians 6:19). Christ incarnate is deity in flesh, and His spirit is incarnate in us. Living and worshiping incarnationally is consciously embracing what the Creator has designed in His image, from the finest, microscopic details to vital organs within our body, enabling the Holy Spirit to work in us.

Faith Embodied will teach you to:

  • Understand subconscious ways that thwart the design of the Creator.
  • Embrace choices that invite incarnational health, living, and worship.
  • Experience God in every aspect of your life, from flesh and bone to heart and soul.
  • View the five senses (sight, smell, hearing, touch, taste) in a different light
  • Reflect the image of God in the way you breathe, move, create, love, and rest.

Weaving together insights from faith, science, and medicine, Ko reveals the marvelous ways in which our physical and spiritual health can prepare us to become instruments of God's healing in the world.

A companion streaming video study is also available.
