Publishers Description

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.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Want to save your life?  Jul 29, 2007
Jesus' commandments and example of behaviors that can transform your life from sickness to health, from death to life. Len Sweet has fun with this book, but what he says is deadly serious -- it could save your life (literally and figuratively, physically and spiritually)! Highly recommended.
Jesus Prescription for a healthy Life...this Rocks  Apr 20, 2000
So many books about Jesus and Christianity focus on anything but Jesus and Christianity. This book gives positive insight into the types of changes that you can make to see REAL Results in your life. This book shows that Christianity is not about rules and do's and don'ts, but about the type of real life changes that can be brought about by internal changes. Salvation (which means deliverance) is not something that can be imputed to the believer by a set of rules, but by a change that can only occur by a transforming relationship with Jesus. Always wanted to be a Christian but didn't think you could keep your brain and your happiness...Read this book and do both.
