Seeing God through the Human Body is a head-on confrontation with Charles Darwin’s Theory of Evolution. In it, a medical doctor and creationist uses his learning and insight as a doctor to defuse the theory of evolution and make a case in favour of God Almighty, in the creation of the human body. Appealing to common sense and drawing upon his medical knowledge, the author argues that the functioning of the various organs of the body are so intricate  that they could only have come about through remarkably clever forethought and planning.

From the FOREWORD written by Dr Charles Muller:

“”Dr. Robert Peprah-Gyamfi is a Creationist par excellence! It is indeed gratifying that a medical doctor like Dr. Peprah-Gyamfi should use his leanings and insights as a doctor to make the case for Creationism, which gives the Lord Almighty full credit for the creation of Humankind as recorded in the Bible. Having read his book, I have to yield to the clear evidence of a Divine Creator–I can see no reason why any readers will not perceive for themselves the incredible uniqueness of the intelligence that has surely gone into the various systems that keep the human body alive and functioning. The brain, heart, liver, kidneys,  spine—all of these and many more could only have come about through remarkably clever forethought and planning.””

About the author

Dr Peprah-Gyamfi grew up in Mpintimpi, a small village in Ghana. In a sense, he is a man not entirely unlike Abram, called by the Lord God to leave the country of his birth and find a new land where a promise would be fulfilled. He received a vision from the Lord, seeing a tableau in which he had the assurance that a time would come when he would be greeting fellow Christians in Europe. That vision was the guiding light and strength that sustained him through all the hurdles and seemingly hopeless plights until he fulfilled his goal. At the beginning of 2006, Dr Peprah-Gyamfi moved from Germany to the UK to further pursue his mission of writing and speaking in defence of the Christian Faith. He is the founder of ‘Thank You Jesus Ministry’, an Internet, Radio and TV Ministry.

FROM THE PREFACE:

When I attended the first year Zoology course at the University of Natal way back in 1962, the distinguished looking Professor of Zoology surprised the students by climbing onto a table at the front of the lecture theatre. He then assumed a crouching position on all fours. “This is how we walked about a long time ago,” he announced. Then he transferred his weight to his feet and stood up in a crouching position. “This is how we stood up many years later, like the gorillas,” he continued. Gradually he became more erect. “Later, like the Neanderthal man, we were nearly erect,” he said, before assuming his normal erect position. “This,” he said, “is how we became human – through a long process of evolution as a result of countless mutations and natural selection. You need to remember this, since it is fundamental to all that you are going to learn about in Zoology.”

I was shocked. I knew all about Darwin’s theory of evolution, of course, and, like Charles Kingsley, the Victorian author, even considered it feasible as the method God chose to create mankind, conceding that the account in Genesis might well have been meant as a parable of the creation process. I never expected the theory, however, to be presented as fact and Gospel truth – especially in a university course!

So many years later, now, in 2008, I am equally surprised – pleasantly so – to find that the Creationists are gaining ground, in spite of the audacity of scientists like Professor Dawkins whose in his TV series unashamedly denies the existence of a Divine Designer.

Dr Robert Peprah-Gyamfi is a Creationist par excellence! It is indeed very gratifying that a medical doctor like Dr Peprah-Gyamfi should use his leaning and his insights as a doctor to put the case for the Creationists – where the Lord Almighty is given full credit for the creation of mankind as recorded in the Bible. Having read through his book, I have to yield to the clear evidence of a Divine Creator – and I can see no reason why any reader will not perceive, for themselves, the incredible uniqueness of the intelligence that has surely gone into the various systems that keep the human body alive and functioning. The brain, the heart, the liver, the kidneys, the spine – all of these and many more could only have come about through remarkably clever forethought and planning.

What is more, each and every human being – unlike the animals that have supposedly given rise to the human being – is remarkably unique, which again shows the hand of God. “There are no ordinary people,” C.S. Lewis wrote. “You have never talked to a mere mortal.” And it’s true – each one of us is a special creation of God. Believe it or not, but no one else is just like you or me. Your physical appearance, your voice, your personality traits – all these make you one of a kind. Even your fingerprints distinguish you from any other human being.

What is more, each and every one of us is valuable to God, made in his own image – every hair on our heads having been numbered! We are, as Dr Peprah-Gyamfi says, quoting the psalmist, “fearfully and wonderfully made”.  The human body, without exaggeration, is a miracle – or better still, a sum total of miracles. Indeed, there are thousands upon thousands, if not millions upon millions, yes even billions upon billions, of miracles simultaneously at work in our body to keep us going. Appealing to common sense and drawing upon his medical knowledge, the author lays bare the sheer wonder of our design – and any thinking man and woman will surely see that what he reveals is true – that behind it all is a loving and patient Creator, who sustains us, even the atheist who denies Him! The fact is that we are precious to God, who continues to love us even when we pay him no mind, or even when we deny his existence.
