The authors of Celebrations describe the acronym as carrying “within it both the secrets of healthful lifestyle and an exuberant appreciation of the joy of living well.” Health studies overwhelmingly confirm this statement to be true. So, to all those who want to live longer and better—this book is for you!
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 photographs that bring the book to life. The joy of service to Christ and the love He has for His children permeate the pages and convey a fresh perspective to the vital topic of healthful living.
Authored by the doctors who head the Health Ministries Department of the General Conference of the Seventh-day Adventists, Celebrations offers a wealth of medical and health-education experience presented in a balanced, practical way to anyone who desires to live healthfully and thrive.

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 longevity.
In The 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.
