Product Description
Eating only when truly hungry, rather than when the clock dictates, frees us to pursue authentic living. We can push back true hunger for hours by exercise that strengthens muscles and improves cardiovascular fitness. This book, without being autobiographical, describes the author's ongoing physical and spiritual transformation, which began at age sixty-three. The sincere pursuit of Christ must include physical and spiritual self-discipline and the willingness to embrace suffering, including fasting. Sweaty, Sore, Sometimes Hungry challenges readers to get off of the couch, purchase the gym membership and training shoes, and love God authentically--as whole, faithful stewards of the bodies he entrusted to their care. Obesity and other lifestyle diseases are not acceptable options for the children of God, for those sincerely desiring to live to ""the praise of his glory"" (Eph 1:12). ""This book comes at a time when believers need to focus on obedience, and that includes this subject, which is rarely addressed adequately in church settings. Thoroughly biblical and practical in approach, this book should reach many people who are in desperate need of help in this area of their lives. I am one of those people."" --Marc Cerce, Ordained Assemblies of God Minister and President of the Board of Alderman, City of Battlefield, Missouri ""Americans tend to either adore or abuse their physical bodies. Marvin Gilbert does neither; instead he advocates for an integrated health that focuses on gradual gains, consistency, and moderation. He gently (as is his way) reminds us that pain is a faithful affliction. This book will help you avoid idolizing your body by either too much or too little attention. I highly recommend it to you."" --Dick Brogden, Founder of the Live Dead Movement Marvin Gilbert, a retired Assemblies of God missionary to Africa, directs the Doctor of Ministry degree program at Southwestern Assemblies of God University, Waxahachie, Texas. He was the lead editor of the two-volume set The Holy Spirit and Counseling and the recently published text entitled Missiological Research: Interdisciplinary Foundations, Methods, and Integration.
