"Wellness is a way of life, a life-style that is based on an experience of God and shaped in response to that experience. this life-style views and lives life as purposeful and pleasurable, seeks out life-sustaining and life-enriching options that are freely and personally chosen at every opportunity. It enhances self-esteem and continually challenges one's values, striving always to sink ever-deeper roots into spiritual values and religious beliefs." --from the Introduction

"The abundant life Christ promised to seekers is living that is energized by and centered in real meaning, that is busy discovering life's authentic joys and pleasures, that operates out of deeply rooted spiritual values. And it is living in ways that give life to others. John Pilch's excellent book dives right into the center of this understanding and explores it thoroughly and vividly." --Rich Heffern, 'Praying Magazing'
