Scazzero tells the story about his life as a pastor, how he attempted to lead the church through his own power and energy, to which he found this was not working. He gave little to no thought about his emotional life and how this was destroying his relationships. Once he took a closer look at himself, his life changed.
Early in the book, in the 2nd chapter, Scazzero lists the 10 symptoms of emotionally unhealthy spirituality and uses that as a diagnostic tool.
In many respects this is a book on discipleship. The goal in discipleship is to help the person grow to become the person Christ has called them to be. If we are not spiritual life is not emotionally healthy, then we will not grow as we should.
In order to help the reader identify with his points of unhealthy spirituality, Scazzero looks at other historical and biblical figures to help the reader better see where their own shortcomings are and what they need to do to address this issue.
Overall, I would highly recommend this book. I am considering using this as a classroom book for a study within the church.
I received this book from booklookbloggers in exchange for an honest review.
