Leonard Sweet--with his profound insight and humor--examines how Jesus laughed, played with children, walked, enjoyed the good times, and poked fun at pious pretensions. By examining the life of Jesus, this prescription for health and well-being details the ways and habits through which Jesus lived a disciplined life and healthy existence during his ministry among us. The self-help advice is linked directly to stories about or by Jesus in the Gospels. You are sure to sharpen spiritually and hone your life physically while learning things about Jesus that you have never heard before.

"Sweet's off-the-wall prescription will afflict your assumptions and confront your consumption. It will change the way you look at Jesus--and it will change you." --Russell Chandler.
