Zondervan The Emotionally Healthy Church: A Strategy for Discipleship that Actually Changes Lives, Updated Ed.

As Pastor Scazzero discovered in his church---New Life Fellowship in Queens---lots of activity doesn't guarantee spiritual health. In this expanded edition, he takes a deeper look at six principles that establish strong personal relationships and a sense of community; and adds a seventh---how contemplative devotion can lead to spiritual and emotional well-being. 240 pages, hardcover from Zondervan.

I tried reading the book on a Kindle reader after downloading the app, but was absolutely un-usable. I then moved to an iPad and while the book was readable, the reader quality was low - a number of crashes, paragraphs duplicated, difficult navigation, and not remembering where I was.
Ended up getting a paper copy.

I'm a lay-minister but I also have a full time job working with people who are hurting and kids looking for a future in sports. The common trend is how to relate to them all. This book has allowed me to see my faults (which is trying to do too much) and evaluating my feelings and ideas (my history and all that has made me the person now). One of the greatest points in the book is seeing a man admit to mistakes and not give up but find ways to make a success from failure.
I appreciate seeing someone who revealed their failures and how he used his greatest weaknesses to become his greatest strengths.
Peter had a tempter but Jesus cooled his tongue; Paul was blinded by truth and tradition, but Jesus peeled off the cover to reveal the true fruit. We all have issues but how can we overcome them?
If you want great fruit, here is a great vine! Understand that the principle of this vine comes from a tree that is connected to God's tree of truth and knowledge.
The author relates to everything God and not himself, I love the book for when a man can show his humility with the love of Christ, then that is a great book for me. No doubt a great book for me and hopefully many others.
May God bless you and remember the Bible gives us the answers we need, but sometimes he sends a great writer that can gives us clarity to what he wants us to understand. Amen, to the Holy Spirit.
