Despite more tools and resources to assist us in our pursuit of wellness than have ever existed, the health and fitness of Americans continues to decline, with the Church leading the way in unhealthy behaviors. What accounts for this? Pastor and Author David Bush follows up his previously published book, Fit For The King, with a 30-day devotional that gets to the root of our problem—a misunderstanding or misapplication of the gospel. This book starts where all change must begin—with our minds and our hearts—by leading the reader through a daily re-examination of the relationship between our physical bodies and the development of gospel-centered motives for change. The Christian in need of physical transformation must first address his or her motive for change, then pursue a health journey that is guided by the grace and truth of the gospel! Before you try another fitness class or take the latest diet craze for a test drive, spend 30 days gaining God’s perspective of your body, your motives, and your pursuit of better health!

Here’s What People Are Saying
“God both created us, and then bought us back at the infinite cost of his own Son. He is for the body, and the body is for him. Give David Bush 30 days, just a few minutes each day, to apply Christian theology, in many of its glories, to your perspective, care, and concerns about your body. This is a vital project and pursuit in any age, and especially our day.”

“Many Christians do not have a clear understanding of how the gospel impacts their pursuit of physical fitness. This book fills the gap—and does an excellent job. There are no superficial, forced, or artificial connections to the gospel here. It is filled with real, helpful, and profound insights on how the gospel should shape and relate to this crucial aspect of our lives.”
