Five Christians, professionals in the field of wholistic
health, combine their expertise and insights to provide a

At the core of this innovative textbook is its Christian
worldview. Christian values as they relate to personal
wellness are the primary subjects of discussion,
motivating students to seek total well-being.
Health and Wellness: Honoring God in Body, Mind, and
Spirit targets lifestyle choice as the key for
understanding how core values relate to overall wellbeing.
Its many invaluable learning tools include
numerous charts and graphs, self-evaluation questions
and activities, and assessment tests- all designed to
help students examine their current health and
wellness status, activate change in their lives, and

Whether as a college textbook or as a resource
for personal development, Health and Wellness:
Honoring God in Body, Mind, and Spirit will
propel its readers from a reactive focus to a
proactive outlook, proving that wellness isn’t
just a “pie-in-the-sky” theory—it can and
should be the substance of life.
“Health, as we commonly view it today, frequently involves a reactive mind-set.
We tend not to do anything until something happens that negatively influences our
health. We don’t connect tomorrow’s well-being with today’s positive steps to
attain and maintain optimum health. This outlook demonstrates a lack of personal
responsibility, relegating health to the domain of chance.”
