Read full description of the books:
Learned about this book yesterday. The one recommending it was so genuinely enthusiastic that I grabbed it on Audible in the moment. Then, last night and early this morning, I listened to it at 3x speed because I wanted to get a quick grasp of the content. By tonight, I'd ordered 6 copies on Amazon for other ministry friends I think would benefit from Thomas' clarity. Will probably relisten--more slowly this time--starting tomorrow.
This is the first book on physical wellness/ministry that seemed more healthy than hokey. A very timely and responsible treatise for the modern evangelical church on a subject that has been neglected too long for fear of offending some [of us] who aren't in great shape and who hide behind the excuses of business and "demanding ministry" rather than cultivate more healthy [and ministry-extending] disciplines.
Similar in some ways to to Richard Swenson's book on restoring margin to our lives, Thomas encourages the reader to zoom out, take a long view and prioritize good steward of his/her body on order to provide sustainable leadership/ministry into the future. Too many of us, he says, are being short-sighted, living for near-term impact.
Good theology, responsible use of scripture, practical enough to be motivating.
