As both medical doctor and Christian minister, Dr Chapman is well placed to bring an integrated, whole person perspective to this book on biblical health. It is divided into four sections: biblical health, health of the spirit, health of the soul, and health of the body.

This is a practical workbook with scriptural quotes, questions for reflection, and space to write personal thoughts at the end of each chapter. I found it easy to read with an attractive layout. It makes no attempt to be an exhaustive manual on this complex subject, but the broad and generalist approach prevents the reader becoming bogged down. References are provided for deeper study.

I dozed off when reading lists of essential nutrients (did you know walnuts are a common source of coenzyme Q10?) but enjoyed the chapter on laughter and its benefits. The chapters on rest, stress, and ageing found me reading slowly and reflectively with a clear sense of God's revelation and challenge to obedience. What would elderly men change if they could have their life over again? They would rest more, reflect more and risk more.

This is a wise, informative and practical overview of biblical health in the 21st century.
