Description

We all need a spiritual healthcheck from time to time. These 16 devotions will help you to see where and how to grow in faith and joy.

This book will: help you to diagnose how you’re (honestly) doing in your faith; give you the “vitamins” you need—God’s ways of helping you to thrive; and point you to the one who enables you to really grow—the Holy Spirit.

Give yourself a spiritual healthcheck and ask for God's help to make you more like Christ. There's no better way to start the new year.

This title is available in braille, large print or on DAISY audio CD by contacting Torch Trust's Client Services team on 01858 438260.

Everyone needs a check up every now and then and Carl gives us a terrific little spiritual health check here. It helps us see where we may have drifted and then balances that out with Biblically helpful encouragement to get back on track. Here are helpfully penetrating questions and a lovely encouragement that although there are no quick steps to a thriving Christian life, we have all we need in Jesus and the ordinary means of grace.

Courtney Reissig

Author of Glory in the Ordinary and The Accidental Feminist

Carl Laferton has provided a gift to the church in encouraging believers to see how God is working and providing hope for change. Like many believers, I have often wondered if I am growing as a Christian. The daily pressures of life, coupled with my own sin, can make it difficult to see the work that God is doing. "Spiritual Healthcheck" is a needed tool designed to help believers diagnose and treat their own spiritual health. Great to read with a friend or read it on your own.

Niall Lockhart

Minister, Ballyhenry Presbyterian Church, Newtownabbey, Northern Ireland

In this helpful and highly readable book Carl Laferton offers a spiritual healthcheck suitable for use by individuals, small groups or whole churches. Drawing on themes from across the Bible, and with the gospel at its heart, here is a book that diagnoses and prescribes offering realistic and practical encouragements for spiritual health and vitality.

“Pleased”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I had ordered a book and after some time was asked to review it. I hadn’t received it and told them this, without question they said it must have got lost in the post and sent me a replacement. Great service. The book was Spiritual Checkup and I have found it to be a marvellous study resource and would recommend it to anyone.

“Powerful in a small packet!”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

Great resource with questions that cause you to take a second look at what’s really going on. Using with my prayer partner for Lent - focusing our prayers and support for each other. Encouraging, realistic and achievable approach.

“Fantastic for small groups”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I purchased 6 copies of this book for the leaders to re commence our Ladies breakfast and as this is now over Zoom, due to the pandemic. It is an ideal short study for each month of the year. It is helpful because it is a great devotional that focuses on our Spiritual Health! Each chapter has a different topic relevant to new believers and mature Christians.

“A very useful reminder”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I read a chapter a day as part of my daily quiet time at the start of 2021. It was thought provoking, helpful and forced me to reflect and respond to some of the most basic teaching of the bible. Recommended for anyone who is looking for a challenging start to the day / year.

“Highly recommend.”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

Found it challenging. That was what I needed. Brought me back fresh to jesus and what he did for me at the cross.

“Very challenging”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

We are studying the book as a home group and are finding it very challenging. We thought we were doing OK but the searchlight of the questions shows us how much further we have to go.

“Inspiring and practical”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

This little book is a really helpful resource that looks at our personal spiritual health in a fresh, inspiring and practical way. The structure lends itself to a personal devotional time or use in a small group. I found the short and to-the-point commentary really helpfully as it took familiar passages and themes but opened up a new dimension for me. It came recommended to me and I am very happy to recommend it on!

“A must read for Christians to apply to their lives as they follow Jesus.”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I used this last January when it was in the Explore notes and found it so helpful and practical and bought 3 copies of the book for friends when it was published. A great book to help us in our walk with God.

“A must read for anyone needing encouragement to keep going in the Christian life.”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

I found this spiritual checkup so good and helpful when it was in the Explore notes last January so was delighted to see it published in book form. I bought three to give to friends and they’re pleased as like everyone we all struggle at some time in our walk with God. I highly recommend this book which reminds us of what the Lord Jesus has done for us and encourages us to keep going in a clear, practical and helpful way.

“Excellent”

(Review written for 'Spiritual Healthcheck')

Just bought this and received it in the post. Unpacked it, thought, "that looks interesting" and then got so caught up in it I have in fact skimmed through it cover to cover. Looks terrific! Certainly one for church ministers to apply to themselves and give away in congregations... Really helpful, concise and clear.
