This article is centered on the reality that humans are embodied souls. The body is never described in Scripture in moral terms; instead, it is either strong or weak. Its weaknesses can make our lives complicated, difficult and painful, but we can spiritually grow even when the body is compromised. In “Spiritual Growth in the Face of Psychiatric Disorders,” Welch shows what growth in Christ looks like for three people with serious troubles that include a physically-based weakness.
