The Book


The Book

The word quicken means to give life or vigor.  Live organisms grow, reproduce and react to the environment. A vibrant healthy body is one in which all cells operate at their optimal level, performing their purpose.  The church thrives when its constituents know and fulfill their purpose and function, for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry and for the edifying of the body of Christ, till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.  Eph 4.12,13 Within the Body of Christ, quickened members must grow to spiritual maturity, reproduce by soul winning, and have an impact on the environment, by serving in the community.

Church members function best when they are physically and mentally healthy.  In addition to analogies of the inner workings of the Body of Christ, the twelve chapters of Quickened Made Alive address tissue cells, blood cells and each of the ten systems described above. Each chapter has a simple drawing, a one page description of anatomy and/or physiology, and a common health concern or disease process with recommendations for optimal living.

Throughout the chapters of this book, readers will learn about their bodies and identify with spiritual, physical and emotional truths, finding an enhanced and quickened way of life.  Ministers find inspiration for sermons, leaders find options for decision making and people management. Laypersons discover their position and purpose in the Body of Christ and/or in life.  This book is a must read!

​​​​​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.
