Emotionally Healthy Spirituality: A Book Review

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality by Peter Scazzero

I wasn't sure I wanted to read this book, but after a friend raved about, I figured I would give it a shot. The premise of this book is that you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotional immature. Born out of a season where the author noticed this in himself and then started seeing it in churches across the country, this book outlines his journey and shares the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. One of the things he noticed was himself using God to run from God. I think that's the part of the book description that drew me in the most - the fact that the author could admit that about himself. I've seen that play out greatly in several of my relationships.

There's a reason this book has sold more than 250,000 copies. It's well written, full of good things (I mean, very good things), not skirting the real issue of spiritual feebleness and what to do about it if you see it in yourself. Like the friend who recommended it to me as a good book to pick up, I will in return recommend it to you!
