What does faith have to do with fitness? What is the connection between being spiritually well and physically well? Author Tom Hafer answers these questions as he explores the connections between a strong faith and everyday lifestyle choices. Filled with practical ideas about food, exercise, and total wellness, the book explores the connections between real food and "living water;" affluence and "feed my sheep;" exercising for peace; and the relationship between a well congregation and well individuals. The book includes a theology of fitness, directions for exercises at various levels of fitness, and informative material about proper diet that enhances personal health and supports sustainable agricultural practices.
