  • Finally, an answer for why some people never mature spiritually!
    It has been frustrating to pour hours of ministry into people that never change. Now I know why. There's more needed than just an understanding of scripture. The author explains in detail the steps to emotional health and spiritual maturity. Very helpful....more info
  • Discovering True Emotionally Healthy Christianity
    This is another book that was required reading for the Doctorate of Ministry program this semester. The opening illustration of the man wanting to come over to talk about his problems and the author (minister) inviting him over even though he was wore out and his wife was wore out too. It was a classic case of "faking it for Jesus." The man continued to talk for hours. Instead of having boundaries, the minister allowed himself to be used and abused. The reason was he needed to be liked and well thought of regardless of his true feelings. The book does an excellent job of looking at spirituality within a emotional framework. All ministers have been used in the name of Christ. This book deals with some of the unhealthy mindsets that exist within Christianity. The book comes from a systems perspective which is beneficial to a preacher. The book was easy to read and interesting because of the real life perspectives on Christianity. It highlighted a lifestyle that would create a living and healthy spirituality within the practitioners of the steps. This was an excellent and helpful book....more info
  • Bringing all of life together
    Peter Scazzero does a good job of mapping out growth in the spiritual life. It's a great mix of right thinking and the necessary practical behaviors that one would expect of the spiritually and emotionally mature person. Very encouraging. Inspiring....more info
  • Life Changing
    For too many years I was of the mindset that self-care was selfish. I never understood that in order to continue giving I could not continue to ignore the call of my own spirit to stop, rest and reflect. I'm a thinker by divine wiring - but I had somehow come to believe that action was the only gift that mattered. The first time through this book I was stunned and relieved to acknowledge that this "need" in me to break away at points in the day to simply BE with God was not selfish at all, but the healing needed for my tired and sick spirit. I no longer push myself past my limits in order to reach a place of rest (that is always elusive - because there is always "one more thing" that can be done), but I stop and rest, reflect, refresh and relate with God along the way. I now have more of me in which to give to others. I recommend a second and third reading. I'm nearly done for a second time and have learned this time through that my feelings and emotions are part of Gods design too - to speak to me. While it may be true what some say, that feelings can't be trusted... God can be trusted. And emotions can't be ignored - after all God may be using them to teach me something - or build character. I plan on reading again in another 6 months to see what else God plans to reveal. From now on I want to live my life ever more maturely - emotionally and spiritually... to always respond appropriately to everything that comes my way....more info
  • good book
    This is an excellent book for examining your spiritual life and seeing where you may be at a standstill. He shows how you can trace your knee-jerk reactions back to some thought processes built in your past that can keep you in a spiritual rut. Helps you take that info and transform it into healthy biblical thinking. Good book for biblically dealing with emotions. God loves when we let him open our eyes to new ways to grow. Rom. 12:1-2
    Appropriate scripture references....more info

  • A Must Read
    This is a follow up to his Emotionally Healthy Church targeting more the individual Christian more than church leaders. I don't agree with some of his theological positions, but the overall concept of emotional health and contemplation are great. This needs to be tempered and discerned with the readers' personality, gifts, and way of learning. The best part are his applications of Sabbath. Worth the read. I also love the way he encouraged the reader to apply the principles as they see fit and are comfortable with. A highly recommend this book to any church leader, any Christian, parent, teacher, anyone!...more info
  • A Complete Revelation...
    In this book Peter Scazzero lays out a variety of thoughts and ideas that at it's best will completely have you reevaluate your emotional health by inviting Christ into the mix. I believe the strength of Peter's work draws from not just his experience but also that of many others (the saints of the past) who have given Christianity a go over the years.

    From inherited family sin to humility, Peter draws upon the power of scripture and Christ to release new revelation and strength to the reader. I am not sure what else a person could want to gain from a book.

    For me, this is one of those books that the first reading just will not do. Having completed it fairly quickly I will retreat to my prayer closet seek the Lord on some obvious things and attack it again. What a valuable resource for leadership in and out of the church. For so many years I have struggled to figure out why so many committed followers of Christ struggle with the basic concepts of "freedom". This book gave me some much-needed understanding of what it means to be "whole" in Christ.

    My recommendation is that you read this with your spouse or at least a really close friend. Better yet, read it on the way to a family reunion. (Seriously, that's what we did!) All the while ask the Lord what He would have you gain from such a wonderful written and well-articulated journey into Emotionally Healthy Spirituality.
