I really enjoyed how each chapter was broken up between the physical bodybuilding aspects of the author's life, and then the spiritual parallels he drew out in order to encourage and challenge "the body" (the term the author uses to refer to the Body of Christ, those who follow Jesus). There were plenty of challenges, as well as tips and insights, to be found in the bodybuilding sections of each chapter. I appreciated these and will be implementing as many as I can immediately into my routine.
As someone who is very health conscious, and enjoys lifting weights and exercise, I really appreciated all this book had to offer. With my real identity found in Christ, as a member of "the body", the lessons I learned that will enable me to up my spiritual weight are invaluable.
This was an incredible book written by an incredible man of God. Anthony Pelella's passion for bodybuilding, as well as boxing, and Christ can be seen in every line. The message of this book is clear: A genuine relationship with Jesus, one that is constantly growing and developing, is the only satisfaction that can be found in this life.
