Obesity in America is rampant. This is not to the exclusion of the church. Yet we are called to be set apart and different, so how does the obesity epidemic in the Body of Christ reveal spiritual deficiencies, misplaced priorities and skewed perspectives? Jake A. Merrick understands that the Body of Christ is comprised of individual bodies, and the strength of the whole will be dependent on the strength of the parts. Despite our faith and good intentions, when our bodies are weak and broken, we will not accomplish all that God has called us to. In Bodies of Christ, Jake A. Merrick dives into the middle of this sensitive and often avoided topic of degrading physical health in the church. He examines the spiritual roots of physical deterioration in the church and the biblical reasons why it cannot be overlooked. Then, rather than offer another "weight loss secret," he applies an approach that returns to the fundamentals of our faith to reverse this destructive trend in the church.
