John Merrick had lived for more than twenty years imprisoned in a body that condemned him to a miserable life in the workhouse and to humiliation as a circus sideshow freak. But beneath that tragic exterior, within that enormous and deformed head, thrived the soul of a poet, the heart of a dreamer, the longings of a man. Based on the extraordinary motion picture that captured the heart of America.

?The Elephant Man? has touched the hearts and imaginations of readers since the day his name was first mentioned in the mass media, in a letter to the editor of The Times of London in 1886. For a number of years Joseph Merrick, who was terribly deformed due to a genetic disorder, earned his living by being exhibited as a curiosity in traveling freak shows. He was billed as ?The Great Freak of Nature! Half a Man & Half an Elephant.? Merrick was rescued from his demeaning occupation by Frederick Treves, the head surgeon at the London Hospital. Treves took him in, befriended him, helped to make a permanent home for him in the hospital, and generally treated him like a human being rather than an animal. And in the course of this humane treatment, Merrick?s personality was radically transformed ? from that of a frightened, withdrawn, inarticulate creature into that of a cordial, conversant, gentle human being. Treves never did understand how such a transformation was possible ? particularly since he assumed that Merrick had been abandoned by his mother at an early age and had led a life of near total deprivation. It was a mystery to him. And it remained a mystery to the public at large for the better part of a century, until the question was addressed by anthropologist Ashley Montagu, whose first book on the Elephant Man appeared in 1971. Now, in this Third Edition of The Elephant Man, Dr. Montagu defines and solves the mystery surrounding Joseph Merrick?s personality in a clearer, more definitive fashion than ever before.How could this poor creature turn out to be such a kind, gentle, even refined person after being subjected to so much tribulation? Montagu explains: ?The answer can almost certainly be found, more than anywhere else, in the person of Mary Jane Merrick, his mother, and in the loving manner in which she reared and nurtured him.? Montagu?s new writings in this Third Edition deal with ? indeed, they celebrate ? the supreme importance of a mother?s love for her child. They recognize and pay tribute to the role that mothers everywhere play in the creation and development of whole, healthy, loving human beings. And they bring new meaning and understanding to the old adage, ?The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.?

"The Elephant Man" is based on the life of John Merrick, who lived in London during the latter part of the nineteenth century. A horribly deformed young man, who has been a freak attraction in traveling side shows, is found abandoned and helpless and is admitted for observation to Whitechapel, a prestigious London hospital. Under the care of a famous young doctor, who educates him and introduces him to London society, Merrick changes from a sensational object of pity to the urbane and witty favorite of the aristocracy and literati. But his belief that he can become a man like any other is a dream never to be realized.

The true story of John (Joseph) Merrick--a.k.a. the Elephant Man--has captured the imagination of generations of audiences, critics, actors and filmmakers. In 1978, producer Jonathan Sanger received a screenplay from two unknown writers about a hideously disfigured man who refused to fall victim to despair and instead exemplified human dignity. Reading it (twice), Sanger was determined that Merrick's story would be told. This book is Sanger's unvarnished first-person account of how the The Elephant Man (1980) was made. His adventure in filmmaking--itself a study in triumph over despair--involved special effects nightmares, scheduling conflicts, location issues and many risky decisions. Assembling a team that included Mel Brooks (executive producer), David Lynch (director) and actors John Hurt and Anthony Hopkins, Sanger persevered in making this inspiring, award-winning film.

We are in danger of losing our identities as unique beings created in the image of God. Our culture, not wanting to answer to a higher authority, tries to expel God from the planet but in the process strips off the very image that makes us human. If we officiate at the death of God, we will also be forced to preside over the funeral of man. The good news is that despite the loud voices declaring that we are just evolved animals, the vast majority of us behave as if we are special. Since the characteristics that make humans unique are found nowhere else on the planet, we are compelled to look to the heavens. We have a choice; we can find significance running with the pack or in becoming children of God. We can howl at the moon or offer prayers to our Father, but either way we will end up worshiping our maker. Dr. Strandness explores what it means to be created in the image of God by examining those qualities that are universally recognized as unique to humankind. He makes the case that these characteristics have a heavenly origin and can only be adequately explained by a Biblical understanding of humans as God's image-bearers.
