You can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. In this eight-session small group Bible study, author and pastor Pete Scazzero awaken participants to a biblical integration of emotional health and the classic practices of contemplative spirituality, leading to a relational revolution with Jesus.
For those desiring to take steps in their Christian life and discipleship, to break free from bondage to the past and experience healing, Emotionally Healthy Spirituality is an eight-session video-based Bible study on the integration of emotional health and contemplative spirituality. Many sincere followers of Christ, followers who are really passionate for God, join a church, participate weekly in a small group, serve with their gifts, and who are considered “mature,” remain stuck at a level of spiritual immaturity—especially when faced with interpersonal conflicts and crises. The Emotionally Healthy Spirituality video study and companion study guide offer a strategy for discipleship that address this void, offering powerful pathways to transformation that will help people mature into a faith filled with authenticity and a profound love for God.
The eight sessions include:
- The Problem of Emotionally Unhealthy Spirituality (19:00)

Emotionally Healthy Spirituality – Paperback Book
In Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Scazzero outlines the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality and then provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you.
Peter Scazzero learned the hard way: you can’t be spiritually mature while remaining emotionally immature. Even though he was a pastor of a growing church, he did what most people do:
- Avoid conflict in the name of Christianity
- Ignore his anger, sadness, and fear
- Use God to run from God
- Live without boundaries
Eventually God awakened him to a biblical integration of emotional health, a relationship with Jesus, and the classic practices of contemplative spirituality. It created nothing short of a spiritual revolution, utterly transforming him and his church.
In this best-selling book Scazzero outlines his journey and the signs of emotionally unhealthy spirituality. Then he provides seven biblical, reality-tested ways to break through to the revolutionary life Christ meant for you. “The combination of emotional health and contemplative spirituality,” he says, “unleashes the Holy Spirit inside us so that we might experientially know the power of an authentic life in Christ.”
2017 Updated Edition – Offering new stories and principles, the updated edition will inspire readers to revolutionize their spiritual life.
In this groundbreaking devotional book, Peter Scazzero introduces the ancient spiritual discipline of the Daily Office. The basic premise of the Daily Office is simple: We need to intentionally stop to be with God more than once a day so that practicing the presence of God becomes real in our lives.
Each day offers two Daily Offices—Morning/Midday and Midday/Evening—where each pause can last from five to twenty minutes.
