Fitness crazes come and go quickly, and each one seems crazier than the next. But if you really care about being healthy and whole, how's a person to find the best way to live?
In Are You Fit For Life?, Jack Graham shares some valuable fitness advice from a surprising biblical source—Paul's letter to the Philippians. In a careful and caring examination of scripture, Graham shows contemporary believers how to apply biblical truths to our daily walk with God. But more than that, this book offers a down-to-earth discussion of what being healthy really means. Unlike recent fitness or self-help fads that focus on only one part of a person, Graham shows that God's plan for our health touches every aspect of our lives—affecting us physically, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and in our relationships with family, church, and others.
Biblically-based, and with a combination of gentle humor and inspiration, Jack Graham offers compassionate encouragement and guidance, challenging Christian believers to grow into the fullness of life with Christ.
The truth is that being fit for life is a serious matter for all of us. And the good news is that the Bible has a life-changing message for us on this issue, because no one is more concerned about our physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual fitness than the God who made us and redeemed us. —from Chapter 1
