Obesity and being overweight is one of the greatest challenges in the modern world and Christians are not immune from its consequences. This sin has multiple impacts on us all – physically, mentally and spiritually – as well as on the environment and our global community. This book takes you through those impacts in a systematic way by bringing the issues together in a comprehensive manner, outlining the outcomes by using both the Bible and the latest research, and helping us to be proactive as we seek to live as God intended. Along with chapters looking at obesity, its subsequent health issues and the impact on the environment, there are also chapters dealing specifically with exercise, body image and the effects of sugar. At the end of each chapter, there are action points to help you consider your lifestyle as you live for Jesus.
