The Publishing Story: Emotionally Healthy Christianity

Bruce Barbour, literary agent, came to us for our services to help Chris Thurman, PhD, publish his book. We’ve worked with Bruce on other projects before, but the author for this project had a specific vision in mind for the cover.

Specific Services We Provided

We helped with:

  • Project management
  • Copyediting and proofreading
  • Cover design
  • Interior design and typesetting
  • eBook formatting

We created a cover the author was thrilled with, and the result was a very happy client.

Emotionally Healthy Christianity was published May 15, 2023.

We enjoyed working with Chris, who is a PhD psychologist. His response to our team’s copyedit was encouraging because he was blown away by the deep edit we did.

It was also fun to work with the author to make a truly appealing and appropriate cover.

We appreciate Bruce’s kind endorsement: “Another brilliant job!”

More About the Book

From the back cover.

Emotional health is crucial as we go through life. The world we live in has its perspective on what makes for an emotionally healthy life, but is it trustworthy?

In Emotionally Healthy Christianity, Dr. Chris Thurman offers biblical insight into emotional health based on the life of Jesus Christ. With Christ as the perfect expression of psychological health, Dr. Thurman guides us into core habits emotionally healthy Christians live by, including:

  • Giving more than you take
  • Taking appropriate responsibility
  • Forgiving and seeking forgiveness
  • Viewing reality accurately
  • Facing problems head on
  • Anchoring worth in God

As we make our way through life, we need to model our emotional health on the life of Christ. Following in his psychological footsteps is the only way to experience life in full.

Emotionally Healthy Christianity, is brilliant, insightful, and practically helpful as Chris Thurman breaks down twelve essentials of emotional health modeled by the only perfect example, Jesus Christ! Chris not only helps us see from Jesus’ life what emotional health truly looks like, he gives real-world case studies and practical ideas on how to grow emotionally to be more like Jesus. I hope every person who follows Jesus will read and apply this book.”

John Burke, senior pastor, Gateway Church, Austin, TX, and bestselling author of Imagine Heaven and No Perfect People Allowed

“With mental health issues on the rise, it has never been more important to have reliable information related to emotional health. Who better to guide us than Jesus? Chris Thurman has invested his career in helping people prioritize and improve their emotional health. Rather than offer quick-fix solutions grounded in worldly wisdom, he has been faithful to point people to the scriptures and example of Christ. In Emotionally Healthy Christianity, we benefit from his wisdom on the topic and years of proven experience. I highly recommend the book!”
