EMOTIONAL INTELLIGENCE AND THE CHURCH
Emotional Intelligence affects the spiritual and intellectual dimensions of our lives and leads to an emotionally healthy church. This book offers the individual reader a pathway to improve his emotional well-being and to enhance his overall spiritual development. As believers learn the practical principles within this book, the local church will grow and thrive as relationships within the body become more open and
genuine. The reader will learn how to:
Develop interpersonal skills
Develop intrapersonal skills
Be emotionally healthy
As we learn to appreciate the differences among people and understand how our life experiences affect our reactions, we will be able to change the way we respond to others, and we will be able to achieve self-acceptance, as well.
