Item Description...
People Relationally Intimate with God and One Another. The story of how one church grew into spiritual maturity through learning to love one another. Despite all the emphasis today on spiritual formation, church leaders rarely describe what spiritual maturity looks like. This book addresses how to grow disciples with relational depth_balanced people who are genuinely intimate with God, with their inner being, and with others. The Emotionally Healthy Church opens with the story of one church9s revolutionary encounter with God ashe taught them a new way of approaching discipleship. Pete Scazzero, the pastor of New Life Fellowship, had been doing a great job of attracting broken and needy people. The church was growing at an impressive rate. He got people to attempt great things for God, developed many of them as leaders, and planted other new churches. But despite the growth and excitement of this front-line ministry, something was deeply wrong. People kept burning out, leaders were exhausted, and Scazzero found his marriage in trouble and his intimacy with God drying up. He sought God, asking what was missing. The turning point came when the pastor discovered a bridge between spiritual maturity and emotional maturity. He learned that Jesus9 followers need training in how to look beneath the iceberg tip of their lives, to break the power of their past on the present, to live in brokenness and vulnerability, to know their limits, to embrace loss and grief, and to model the incarnation of Jesus Christ. This book provides the vision of a church community that is a safe place for developing mature members who begin to see deep lasting change in their lives. To build a healthy church, you need healthy leaders. The Emotionally Healthy Church gives you the tools to do that.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
"40 Days of Therapy?"  Feb 7, 2007
Well, this book came highly recommended by a fellow pastor, and I approched it with positive anticipation. I am very aware of how the emotional state of our church members effects not only their own personal journey, but how it can even dominate the workings of an entire congregation.
However,I cannot go as far as Rev. Scazzero in seeing the emotional health of the person as the "starting place" of their spiritual health. Indeed, it is by the grace of the Holy Spirit that we may rise above our individual foibles, look beyond our own personal concerns, and remember that we are not the center of everything. I fear there is too much encouragement to dig deeper, ever deeper into what has been really bothering us since childhood without the accountability and good relationship with good counselors.
We will not find salvation by "restoring ourselves" to an excruciatingly described and idealistic state of emotional wonderfulness.
The book is written, I do believe, with the best of intention, and out of heart-felt personal experience. It is unfortunate that many of Rev. Scazzero's suggestions for The Journey may lead to trecherous ground without responsible support.
Respectfully submitted,
Rich Moore
A Must Read for Followers of Christ  Jan 22, 2007
do yourself a favor and read either this book or Emotionally Healthy Spiritually by the same author
MORE Comprehensive Discipleship  Jan 11, 2007
Scazzero's book highlights a glaring weakness in Western discipleship... that it is mostly a knowledge based venture. He advocates a more comprehensive approach to deal ALSO with emotional baggage that hinders growth and presents roadblocks that (if gone unexposed) can hinder long-term growth in God's grace. I highly recommend this book.
the emotionally healthy church  Jan 9, 2007
An awesome read!
Something that the body of Christ needs to both address, and apply!
A necessary message for the Christian church at large  Sep 15, 2006
It is easy for many Christians to use spiritual jargon to gloss over their own problems and the problems in religious culture. What Peter Scazzero argues -- using his own church as a case study -- is that many social problems, particularly in the church, have deep emotional roots that often go ignored. He provides practical steps for addressing emotional dysfunction and working toward its healing. This honest, often emotionally raw book is one that I believe every Christian should read, but especially those who find their spiritual progress to be stagnating. The reader should take note that in order to get the most out of this book, one should read it carefully and methodically, doing all the exercises and meditating on the (sometimes hard) questions. This is not a book to be devoured quickly if permanent emotional healing is desired. For those willing to make the investment of time and personal reflection, this book will be life-changing.
