The Book

Quickened Made Alive! Spirit Soul Body, written by Stephanie O. Hughes, a retired registered nurse manager who has a bachelor's degree in Management of Human Resources and Masters of Theology. The Holy Spirit utilizes expertise in these areas to create astounding analogies and realities that profit all who read.

The workings of ten systems of the physical body: circulatory, digestive, skeletal, muscular, reproductive, integumentary (skin), nervous, endocrine, respiratory, and urinary, are blended with the apostle Paul's Biblical description of the Church as the spiritual "Body of Christ". Members of the Church are likened to cells in our physical bodies to clarify and magnify the importance of interdependence, diversity and group synergy, for the effective working of the spiritual body of Christ, the Kingdom of God on earth.
