For everyone looking to glorify Christ in their spirits and their bodies, Ten Commandments of Faith and Fitness is an invaluable tool to guide you every step of the way.Henry Brinton and Vikram Khanna have written an inspiring book calling on Christians to honor their bodies as well as their hearts, minds, and souls. And they are clear that as with our spiritual lives, this too requires dedication, discipline, and perseverance. Ten Commandments of Faith and Fitness is also wonderfully practical and encouraging, as it lays out a step-by-step journey toward physical fitness. The authors provide up-to-date assessments of the value of diet programs and various training programs, and valuable advice for measuring and staying on course.
