Health in the 21st Century has unique challenges and opportunities unheard of in previous generations. Health goes beyond healing and medicine and addresses the whole person nature of mankind and society as a whole. It is not just our relationship to disease but our relationship to each other, the interrelationship between our body, soul and spirit and our relationship to God. These are fundamental issues that affect us all.
The Health For Life book is a practical work and the product of many years of reflection, study, research and life experience. It is written for anyone with an interest in health, healing and a desire to understand the spiritual aspects to health and wholeness. It is written in an interactive style that helps you to identify solutions and build them into your every day life. There are biblical scriptural examples, references, practical guidelines, chapter summaries, reflective questions and testimonies. The book contrasts various health belief models to address the reality of 21st century healthcare and human need. It brings together a clear understanding of the human condition, whole person nature to mankind and scientific accuracy.
The purpose of the book is to provoke thought and reflection, provide guidance and inspiration and to activate action in a vitally important and fundamental area of life and living.
Application of the principles identified in the book can enhance marriages and relationships, find deeper fulfilment and purpose to life and facilitate a healthier and lasting physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual state.
