OVERVIEW

By delving into the churning thoughts of a woman struggling with anorexia and bulimia, we find her struggles are not limited to her physical problems. Fighting an eating disorder requires just as much spiritual strength as it does physical – neither cannot be won alone. Lisabeth does a wonderfully accurate job of inviting readers into her lifelong struggle while offering ways for fighters and supporters to be encouraged. She addresses such issues of nutritional needs, dieting dangers, self-worth concepts, biblical lessons regarding the body as a temple, and the pro and con aspects of therapy procedures for victims of rollercoaster eating patterns.

ASSESSMENT

Rating (1 to 5)

4

Suggested Audience

An excellent resource for anyone in a position to be counseling someone through an eating disorder.

Christian Impact

Provides many practical applications that a person fighting an eating disorder can use from a Christian perspective.

Other Notes:

The author has firsthand experience with eating disorders, but she is not a physician nor a licensed nutritionist.  Some material covered is of a mature nature.
