One percent of church leaders say that they are doing well in discipling new and young believers. After almost three decades of pastoring New Life Fellowship Church in the bustle of New York City, Peter Scazzero discovered that most people are not being changed in our churches, and, as a result, are not changing the world.

Scazzero found two truths to be true: you can't be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature, and unless you slow and quiet your life down for a first-hand relationship with Jesus Christ, little change is possible. The integration of these two truths unleashed a spiritual revolution in Scazzero, in his church, and now in thousands of other churches.

In this revised bestselling book, Scazzero outlines his journey and offers a roadmap for a discipleship with Jesus that is powerfully transformative. Topics include how to identify emotionally unhealthy spirituality, how to grow your soul through grief and loss, and how to develop into an emotionally mature adult.

Offering new stories and principles, this updated edition will inspire readers to revolutionize their spiritual life.

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality, written by Pete Scazzero, was a book that I felt like I desperately needed to read. In the last year or so, I’ve become increasingly aware that over the course of my life I have developed some emotional deficiencies. Whether it’s lacking empathy or being unable to hold difficult, vulnerable conversations or just struggling to appropriately feel and recognize the emotions that we as humans inevitably experience, my struggle has become clear over the course of time. So, I have been thirsty for a book like this and having now read it, I can say without a doubt that this book has been really valuable in my pursuit of better spiritual health.

Scazzero is not a name that I was overly familiar with. Though I did enjoy a recent podcast appearance that he made on the 5 Leadership Questions Podcast, prior to this book I’ve not read anything that he’s written so I was largely unaware of what to expect going into it. Right out of the gate, one of the things that I greatly appreciated about Pete’s theology, which he makes clear throughout this book, is that he sees the Christian’s pursuit of God as a holistic pursuit. It is not a segmented, compartmentalized pursuit, which is quite common today. Rather, he repeatedly makes clear that the Christian’s relationship with God is one in which his/her entire life revolves around/is spent in submission to the God of the Bible, including our human emotions. This book presents a biblical, beautifully holistic Christianity.

For me, chapter four Journey through the Wall was/is the most important and most impactful chapter in the book. He speaks primarily about what’s often referred to as “the dark night of the soul,” which is the place where my family and I have been for a little while now. He approaches this topic from two angles: 1. the purpose of God bringing us to such a difficult season, and 2. what God produces in us through such seasons. I identified with much of what Scazzero wrote in this chapter on these topics, from the “spiritual imperfections” that God is rooting out of us in such seasons to the greater detachment from worldly, unhelpful “stuff” (thoughts, possessions, habits, etc.) in favor of a deeper dependence and undivided pursuit of God himself. This was/is such an important chapter for me to come back to often.

Technically speaking, Scazzero is an engaging, biblically wise author. The book is accessible, rich with wisdom, practically helpful, thought-provoking, and concise. While it can be a quick read, my suggestion would be that you move through it slowly. Read slowly, ask questions, process what you’re reading, and maybe even do so alongside someone who you can dialogue with. I am confident that this book will help produce more emotionally healthy readers, as Pete set out to do. If you struggle emotionally like I do, I recommend reading this book – I’m certain you’ll find it helpful. (Posted on 7/5/2017)
