Late moderns, either explicitly or implicitly, tend to maintain a sharp dichotomy between body and soul, reflecting a prevalent ambivalence toward embodiment more generally. This article recovers a more biblical understanding of humans as embodied creatures with a psychosomatic unity of body and soul; human beings are simultaneously and inseparably embodied souls and ensouled bodies. This recovering helps to improve both the provision and reception of medical and pastoral care, particularly at the end of life. Particular attention is directed to the works of St. Paul, Jeremy Taylor, and Beth Felker Jones.
