What Christian leaders are saying...

Norm Evans Body Tithe Endorsement“Having played 14 years in the NFL, I well understand the discipline and commitment to getting and keeping a body in shape! I am so pleased that Matthew Pryor has challenged the readers of The Body Tithe Devotional to engage that same level of discipline and commitment to being spiritually fit as well. His deep insights and practical helps encompass the Father’s heart for his followers. You will be challenged, instructed and blessed by Matthew’s work. I wish I had The Body Tithe Devotional when I played in the NFL.”

Kyle Idleman Christian Fitness“In The Body Tithe Devotional, Matthew Pryor weaves inspiration and information to drive anyone with a body and soul to change. Matthew’s transparency, insightful tips and godly direction inspired me to take action.”

Kyle Idleman
Best-Selling Author of Not a Fan

World Magazine Body Tithe Review“For Pryor, fitness is not just a health issue, but a heart issue: Christians should be good stewards of physical health because our bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit (1 Corinthians 6:19). He offers a 90-day workout plan that includes spiritual exercises, prayers, and daily devotionals to encourage readers in their fitness goals. His advice: Don’t expect perfection, but do accept challenge. Pryor shares about his own weight struggles as a child, but convincingly shows that fitness victory is not about a number on the scale. It’s about honoring God with our bodies.”

Dave Stone Christian Fitness“I love the concept of The Body Tithe! This 90-day journey is a life changer. Daily motivation to become who God truly called us to be—both physically and spiritually. Plan for a victory in Christ!”

Bob Russell Christian Fitness

“How many times have I greeted the New Year resolved to get in better physical condition? Unfortunately, our New Year’s resolutions often don’t lead to a slimmer, more physically fit body because we lack a plan to go along with our commitment.

In The Body Tithe, Matthew Pryor lays out an excellent plan for you to improve your spiritual fitness.  Buy his book.  Read it and apply it to your life.  I think you’ll be amazed at what it can do for your walk with Christ.”
