Strengthening your body to strengthen your soul!

A fresh perspective on how physical fitness directly impacts your spiritual growth. Physical fitness, offered to God, pursued with God, has enormous spiritual, emotional, and physical benefits.

Every Body Matters explores the spiritual stakes behind the very physical battle of eating and exercise and offers a fresh perspective and renewed motivation for making some major changes. Just as Sacred Marriage has changed the way the contemporary church thinks about marriage, so Every Body Matters will transform the way you look at body care and discipline.

Steering clear of judgment and criticism, author Gary Thomas keeps the focus of this important discussion on the positive impact physical fitness can have on your spiritual and emotional growth. Using the engaging stories of everyday people, Thomas illustrates how becoming physically fit can lead to:
  • increased sensitivity to God's voice
  • renewed energy for God's work
  • greater joy for living
  • a fortified soul better able and more willing to serve and love others
The goal in this pursuit is not sculpting thinner or more athletic-looking bodies. The goal is to cultivate stronger, well-nourished bodies that are primed to become, in the words of the apostle Paul, "instruments for special purposes, made holy, useful to the Master and prepared to do any good work."

By looking at your body as an instrument rather than an ornament, you'll find new and compelling motivation to embrace the kind of active lifestyle that fortifies your soul.
