Every Body Matters by Gary Thomas is a book that deals with how our physical health affects our spiritual health. Our bodies are God’s temple, but most don’t treat them as such.

This book is about snapping up to attention and reminding us that these bodies we have don’t belong to us, they belong to God. They are temples for His Holy Spirit and we have an obligation to God to take care of them.
