Publisher's Summary

Pastors and church leaders want to see lives changed by the gospel. They work tirelessly to care for people, initiate new programs and ministries, preach new sermon series, and keep up with the latest trends. Sadly, it would seem that much of this effort is not resulting in deeply changed disciples.

Why? Because many churches are unknowingly operating from a shallow discipleship that allows people to recycle the same problems year after year. Churchgoers are increasingly passive with lives not distinct from the culture. People are not able to integrate anger and sadness. Many are defensive and incapable of revealing their own weaknesses. Church leaders desperately need a better way of teaching people what it means to follow Jesus in a transformative way.

In Emotionally Healthy Discipleship, best-selling author Pete Scazzero combines three decades of wisdom with hard lessons from his own ministry journey. He lays out what is required for church leaders to multiply deeply changed people who are growing in relationship with God, themselves, and others.

Scazzero begins with four beneath-the-surface, systemic gaps that undermine serious discipleship. He provides a clear vision for a church culture that deeply changes lives and then practically unpacks the seven biblical marks of emotionally healthy discipleship:

  1. Learn to be before you do
  2. Follow the crucified, not the Americanized, Jesus
  3. Receive the gift of limits
  4. Befriend suffering and loss
  5. Break the power of the past
  6. Practice the presence of people
  7. Lead out of brokenness and vulnerability

Finally, he lays out practical steps for you to create an emotionally healthy discipleship culture that actually has the power to change the world.

Graphics, assessments, and appendixes are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

A great follow up to earlier books

This latest book in the Emotionally Healthy series displayed the author's own growth and maturity. The incorporation of church history and Christian spirituality have been refreshing additions in his last two books.
