Overview

What Are You Missing?

Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though he was pastor of a growing church, he did what most people do:

  • Avoid conflict in the name of Christianity
  • Ignore his anger, sadness, and fear
  • Use God to run from God
  • Live without boundaries

Eventually God awakened him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a relationship with Jesus, and the classic practices of contemplative
spirituality. It created nothing short of a spiritual revolution, utterly transforming him and his church.

In this book Scazzero outlines his journey and the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. Then he provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you.
“The combination of emotional health and contemplative spirituality,” he says, “unleashes the Holy Spirit inside us so that we might experientially
know the power of an authentic life in Christ.”

Scazzero rightly points out that we often do not deal well with our emotions, even if we feel we have attained a certain level of spiritual maturity. It affirmed my growing conviction that many of us don't have as high an 'Emotional IQ' as we should have or think we have. He deals with truth issues (based in part on the Bible) and gives practical help in getting a better handle on good, healthy emotionality.

Paster Pete Scazzero shares openly his struggles and how he and his wife Geri learned how to transform their marriage, grow closer to God, and have better relationships with others. You will gain tools that will equip you to grow emotionally and spirtually. My whole family has benefited and I am so thankful.

This book was used in our Sunday School class. So a hard copy was provided. But I got a version for my iPad so I had it with me all the time. Very enlightening. Hard to realize how our lives are shaped during our early years.

This is an excellent book that talks about the various areas of growth that all need in order to love God well, love others well, and to love themselves well. Many adults do not realize that maturity consist of growth in five different areas and therefore pass this same unawareness on from generation to generation. To be more specific, avoiding any of the five areas is not good for anyone. This book clarifies that by stating, "to ignore any aspect of who we are as men and women made in God's image always result in destructive consequences in our relationship with God, with others and with ourselves." Read to find more on these five areas..... Excellent, easy read!
