'This book addresses one of the greatest challenges church leaders face -- how to be healthy people creating healthy communities. It is written by a battle-scarred practitioner who knows whereof he speaks. I wish I'd read it 20 years ago.' -- John Ortberg, Author, Everybody's Normal Till You Get to Know Them <br><br>
From the Back Cover
Emotional health and spiritual maturity are inseparable: that is the premise of the award-winning book The Emotionally Healthy Church. This stand-alone workbook helps leaders and lay persons alike apply the biblical truths in Peter Scazzero's revolutionary book to their personal lives, small groups, and churches. Eight studies take you beyond merely reading about emotional health to actually cultivating it as a disciple of Jesus. Step by step, you'll discover what it means to have Christ transform the deep places hidden beneath the surface so that you might become more authentic and loving toward God, others, and yourself.

I highly recommend the books and course series! Please buy the full course and deepen your maturity/ walk with God. Learning that the two (maturity and walk with God) cannot be separated.
The problem in most churches is that for a lot of reason they are "unhealthy" in dealing with the emotions. This bookwork along with the book will allow you as a leader or just member in general to be prepared to either help yourself or help someone else. We have problems within our faith communities because we've failed to addresses these various issues. We have individuals in leadership roles who have not dealt with all the emotional pitfalls in their own lives and yet they are trying to lead others.
The Emotionally Healthy Church looks at the church as a hole and offers some solutions and suggestions that are adaptable as the culture of your faith group may not be specific to the one that the book is based on. The church that was the model for the church was a diverse one so they have addressed a lot of the issues that would have otherwise been overlooked.
I would recommend this workbook along with the book to any leader or individual who was seeking to lead a group. The suggestions and format allows you to have a starting point. You could read the chapters and/or summarize them to a group and discussions will develope. Once individuals understand that the differences that we have and that when on committees we bring with us our family or origin just as in our work lives we can set back and at least try to understand each other instead of the issues that happen within all faith groups. A lot of problems could be avoided if we take the time to look at the actual individuals who make of the group who make up the church.
The preacher can be a good speaker but the individuals who are apart of the "flock" can destroy even the best of sermons. This small group allow for taking a look at the make up of the church in a different light and opportunity to work with the shepherd and feeding the sheep that come into the fold. Becoming a advocate of one can allow one to change the thinking of many. If you are a church leader I would suggest implementing or testing the exercises in your own groups. The worst that could happen is you see a change for the better.
