Publisher's Summary

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. They are filled with people who are:

  • Unsure how to biblically integrate anger, sadness, and other emotions
  • Defensive, incapable of revealing their weaknesses
  • Threatened by or intolerant of different viewpoints
  • Zealous about ministering at church but blind to their spouses' loneliness at home
  • So involved in "serving" that they fail to take care of themselves
  • Prone to withdraw from conflict rather than resolve it

Sharing from New Life Fellowship's painful but liberating journey, Scazzero reveals exactly how the truth can and does make you free - not just superficially but deep down. You'll acquire knowledge and tools that can help you and others:

  • Look beneath the surface of problems
  • Break the power of past wounds, failures, sins, and circumstances
  • Live a life of brokenness and vulnerability
  • Recognize and honor personal limitations and boundaries
  • Embrace grief and loss
  • Make incarnation your model to love others
  • Slow down to lead with integrity

This new edition shares powerful insights on how contemplative spirituality can help you and your church slow down - an integral key to spiritual and emotional health.

Concepts from a practitioner

A great book that offers the value of experience with the flexibility of principles rather than tasks.

Peter Scazzero offers his experiences of hurt, frustration and defeat and the path to health that he discovered. The principles in this book are at least worth considering, and at most worth orienting your ministry model around.

A great book for pastors as well as board members and other church leaders.

Very helpful

I was so helped by this book I purchased a hard copy as well to add to my library. I have recommended it over and over again to other pastors.
