About the Book

It is interesting how the human body can begin as a single cell yet grow and progress into a 50-trillion-cell physical being. Each cell developed and differentiated into their respective place within the physical body of man. Like the Word of God was breathed through the writers of the Bible, so to God breathed into man life. Man was created by God for God. Fitly Framed Together: The Human Body will take the reader through an organized journey of the anatomy and physiology of the body yet, in an unpretentious way, combining engineering and anatomical features and illustrating how God uses the human body to glorify himself.

The design and nature of the twelve organ systems are unique and indeed fitly framed together, just like the Bible. Following an introduction, Fitly Framed Together: The Human Body discusses how the body is intricately designed and organized. The text then takes us through a journey through the twelve organ systems, describing the working anatomy of each and relating them to scripture and how our body fits into God’s overall creation. Many drawings and illustrations are included. A major feature is a concordance of over five thousand body parts and their scriptural reference. Such topics of discussion include the following:

In His Image
Jesus—the Incarnate of God
Organization of Molecules, Cells, Tissues, and Organ systems
Support and Movement of the Skeletal and Muscular Systems
Control by the Nervous and Endocrine Systems
Maintenance by the Integument, Digestive, Urinary, Immune, Respiratory, and Cardiovascular Systems
The Reproductive Systems of Males and Females

The descriptions and accounts of the Bible are in harmony and in one accord. So, too, the human body is put together in physical harmony yet is also in spiritual harmony with God. Jesus was physical and is the cornerstone of Christian faith. The very nature of God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit is manifested in the human body and is illustrated in Fitly Framed Together: The Human Body.

Although much anatomy and physiology of the human body is presented, Fitly Framed Together: The Human Body is not intended to be a textbook for academic study in the classroom. However, it can be a valued resource that can possibly help your understanding and acceptance as to the creation of man by God and his value to God. By the very nature of the anatomy and physiology of the human body, it must be fitly framed together.
