Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though he was a pastor of a growing church, he did what most people do: avoid conflict in the name of Christianity; ignore his anger, sadness, and fear; and use God to run from God.
"Good, but . . . ."
Do you feel too overwhelmed to enjoy life, unable to sort out the demands on your time? Are you doing your best work as a leader yet not making an impact? Have you ever felt stuck, powerless to change your environment? In The Emotionally Healthy Leader, best-selling author Peter Scazzero shows leaders how to develop a deep inner life with Christ, examining its profound implications for surviving stress, planning and decision making, building teams, creating healthy culture, influencing others, and much more.
"A must read for every pastor"
The newly updated and expanded edition of the groundbreaking best seller The Emotionally Healthy Church features a fuller, deeper look at the six principles contained in the original and includes a crucial additional chapter: "Slow Down to Lead with Integrity". Our churches are in trouble, says Scazzero.
"Concepts from a practitioner"
Do you ever think, 'My soul can't take this anymore?' Geri Scazzero discovered real life and joy with Christ really begins when we stop pretending everything is fine. Summoning the courage to quit that which does not belong to Jesus' kingdom launches you on a powerful journey -- one that will change you and everyone around you!
