This book compares our physical bodies with the biblical description of the universal church as the spiritual Body of Christ, and recommends behaviours that promote health and wellness. The message is that the QUICKENED Human Spirit is enthusiastic, excitable, active and motivated, responding and connecting to God. The QUICKENED soul is focused and content, making appropriate decisions for the well being of the spirit and body. The QUICKENED body is one that is disciplined by the spirit and soul, functioning in an optimal state of health and wellness. Each chapter of the book has one page of anatomy/physiology facts, several pages of biblical correlations, followed by a few pages of pathology, then health and wellness facts. It consists of twelve chapters, beginning with the cell as the basic unit of structure of the human body compared to individual believers as the basic unit of structure in the body of Christ. In the next chapter, blood is to the human body what the word God is to the Spirit and soul of believers and subsequently the Body of Christ, supplying nourishment and potential for growth.
The universal church comes alive in the next ten chapters as basic facts about body systems are aligned with spiritual principles, expounding Gods plan for the church and describing internal operations of the church that are sometimes misunderstood.
