Turkish Title: Sağlıklı Ruhsallık
Original Title: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality
Author: Peter Scazzero
Scazzero presents a groundbreaking work on the integration of emotional health and contemplative spirituality that current models of discipleship fail to address.
This is a practical and personal guide to spiritual growth. Though there are lots of books on spiritual growth and Christian living out there, a lot of them fail to address the issue of emotional baggage. That's what makes this book superior in many ways. It deals with what you bring from your upbringing into your faith, and it realistically portrays suffering as something that should not be ignored, but rather compel us to wonder and grow.
Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though Pete was pastor of a rapidly growing church, he did what most people do:
* avoid conflict in the name of Christianity
* ignore his anger, sadness, and fear
* use God to run from God
* live without boundaries
Eventually God awakened him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a profound relationship with Jesus, and the historical practices of contemplative spirituality. It created nothing short of a spiritual revolution, utterly transforming him and his church.
In this best-selling book Pete outlines his journey and the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. Then he provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is presently used in more than twenty-six countries to equip churches in a deep, beneath-the-surface spiritual formation paradigm that truly transforms lives.
