Holistic Life & Empowering Leaders

Every aspect of our live in integrated in Christ, for our life is hidden in Him. Below you will see the emphasis the holistic focus of life.  This holistic understanding is throughout the pages of the Bible. It was clearly taught to Moses in the leading of Israel and the formation of the Tabernacle, and is again found in Jesus – as he Tabernacles amongst us. Finally is is found in us as we are the tabernacle of the Holy Spirit. On the following pages you can pick from books on the suggested lists. These books have helped others and myself on the holistic journey. Not all books are “Christian” nor “information driven”.   Want to join in on the conversation about a book- let us know.  Again, these Holistic approaches are based on the pattern of the Tabernacle (Ex. 25-40).
