Why are so many discovering a new mid-life crisis – bad health? Why are we ignoring basic Bible principles that would help us? What are some common-sense steps we can take to offer God the very best we can be?
In Turning Point, author Wilson Adams exposes the elephant in the room. Even though we are the sickest people on the planet, we continue to whistle past the all-you-can-eat-buffet-bar while pretending that everything is fine. But everything is not fine. And though we are living longer, we’re not living better or healthier. Sadly, we have learned to manage our sick-care rather than maximize our well-care.
It will eventually catch up to you.
By the time you reach your 50s, life habits will determine if you are able to maintain good health or if you will suddenly nose-dive off the cliff. Which mean: what you do in your earlier years may determine how your latter years will be.
- 2 out of 3 Americans are overweight
- 1 in 3 Americans have cardiovascular disease
- By 2050, a staggering 1 in 3 adults will develop diabetes
- A stunning 80% of teens are on a clear path to heart disease
- U.S. healthcare expenditures are approaching $3,000,000,000,000 (trillion) annually
It’s scary. And while there are hundreds of books on the subject of diet and exercise, most leave God out of the picture. Turning Point, however, views the whole of life – including (and most importantly!) the spiritual side of man. Forget that and you lose the “Why?” of every decision you make – including this one.
