Charismatic Christian minister and author Copeland (God's Master Plan for Your Life) writes another easy-to-read book that logically extends her interest in healing into the area of health and wellness. Copeland and her husband, Kenneth, are best known to the charismatic subset of the Christian market. Yet the topic of aging well appeals to millions of aging adults, enlarging the potential audience, as long as readers are open to her extensive use of the Bible, which has a lot to say on the subject of living to a ripe old age. Copeland creatively adapts the vocabulary of health and wellness: while good-for-you antioxidants come from fruits, the "fruit of the spirit"--love, joy, peace--provides "spiritual antioxidants." Some people just don't like televangelists and prosperity gospel preachers, and this book is unlikely to change their minds. But Copeland's followers and people who fear old age as a time of infirmity will be receptive to the idea that one can live long and prosper. (May)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
