healthful lifestyle and an exuberant appreciation of the joy of living well.”
Health studies overwhelmingly confirm this statement to be true. So, to all

Readers will not
only come away with a fuller understanding of health principles incorporated in
personal choices, drinking pure water, protecting the environment, getting
adequate rest, and more—they also will be inspired by the numerous, compelling

love He has for His children permeate the pages and convey a fresh perspective
to the vital topic of healthful living.

The Benefit of Belief
When was the last time you went
looking for a miracle cure or the fountain of youth, hoping for something to
diminish the signs of living on this sinful earth a little too long? During the
past two decades, much research has been done on the effects of the religious
life on our emotional, mental, and physical health. The documented results are
astounding. Did you know that a
regular prayer life, an attitude of gratitude and joy, or a spirit of
forgiveness can dramatically impact your overall health? Even church attendance
and Scripture reading are intimately connected to health, happiness, and
Benefits of Belief, Dr. Julián Melgosa uses
research and personal stories to reveal the amazing benefits everyone can
obtain from following the Lord’s ways and living the Christian life. Jesus
promises that anyone who follows Him will receive “an hundredfold now” (Mark
10:30). Dr. Melgosa believes it is reasonable to think that these blessings are
not exclusively material, but are also related to the exercise of wisdom,
resilience, and endurance that ultimately translate into good health,
happiness, and well-being. Julián Melgosa is dean of the School of Education
& Psychology at Walla Walla University.
