Real Health Begins with God
Discover How Physical Health is Affected by Spiritual Well-Being
Health care is much more than X-rays and pills—and God, Health, and Happiness shows the close relationship between your physical health and your spiritual well-being. Written by Dr. Scott Morris, founder of the Church Health Center, this new paperback edition (formerly released as Health Care You Can Live With) is available June 2012 from Barbour Publishing.
As the debate over American health care continues, this new edition of God, Health, and Happiness shows the important relationship between a person’s physical health and spiritual well-being. Making the argument that healing—both physical and spiritual—is a key aspect of the Christian faith, Dr. Scott Morris, founder of the Church Health Center in Memphis, America’s largest faith-based clinic for the uninsured, puts a human face on the hot topic of health care, providing both a biblical framework for wellness and encouraging real-life stories of those who found a better life within the overarching love of God.

Praise for the Book:
“I have seen many faith-based programs around the world, and the Church Health Center is one of the most impressive. So impressive, in fact, that I made it the centerpiece of a chapter in a book called What Good is God? Scott Morris answers that question not with abstract argument but with creative, compassionate service. His story is thrilling, and if more people followed his example the contentious health care debate would fall short.”
— Phillip Yancy, author of What’s So Amazing about Grace? and The Jesus I Never Knew
“Nobody is better positioned to speak with both authority and compassion about the wrenching problem of establishing genuine health care for all Americans. His lively and seasoned presentation will appeal to every interested reader.
— Phyllis Tickle, author of The Great Emergence
“Dr. Morris has done the seemingly impossible—created a thriving health care clinic for the working uninsured, funded by volunteers and the faith community. His vision, as well as his passion for redefining wellness, completely changes the paradigm of how we look at health care. This book is a must read for everyone of faith.”
— Harold G. Koenig, M.D., Director of the Center for Spirituality, Theology, and Health, Duke University Medical Center
