Additional DescriptionMore Details

This life-changing 186 page workbook is designed to help the Christian achieve an emotionally rich spiritual life in the presence of God. This book is the result of twenty years of biblical research, thousands of hours spent discipling people, and many years leading seminars and classes in the spiritual life.

The workbook contains 60 readings. It can be completed in as little as 12 weeks if one wishes to do a daily study. However people often want to go much deeper with the study as they delve into the biblical principles referenced. In that case one reading per week will give the group or individual 60 weeks of transforming truths to integrate into their lives. Many people have used this book with great value in private study, small group study or as a follow up tool to our seminars.

Special Workbook Features


Dr. Eckman has done original translations from the Greek New Testament for this workbook. The left hand margin will often include these translated Bible verses to help in your understanding of the Biblical text.

Placed in the left margin throughout the text is a Theological Jargon Box (TJB). Many times, Bible teachers and ministers have a language all their own. This box will take any religious language found in the text and attempt to explain it. The individual will be learning the language of the church, while developing a rich relationship with the Trinity.

Important points in the text are highlighted in bold face type in the left margin.

Chapter Outline



CHAPTER 1 Acceptance and Gratitude
Explore how spiritual growth in the Christian life is directly related to how well we respond to God, the first member of the Trinity, as a Father. Obstacles to spiritual growth often arise from one’s family background. The solution is to participate in God’s family so as to experience an emotionally rich sense of being loved and to have a correspondingly deep response of gratitude.

CHAPTER 2 Acceptance and Worth
Explore how a Christian develops a healthy sense of worth. The chapter will show that a Christian is worth a Son to God. The cross illustrates that at humanity’s worst season and at the time of our moral weakness, Christ died for us. This shows God values us for who we are to Him and not for what we can do for Him, either bad or good. Feeling worthwhile, feeling worth a Son to God, is an essential part of feeling loved.

CHAPTER 3 Acceptance and God the Father
Explore how our acceptance is uniquely linked to each member of the Trinity. The first member of the Trinity is our ultimate and intended Father. He has a deeply emotional attachment to us called “agape love,” and we are to respond to such love with gratitude.

CHAPTER 4 Acceptance and the Son
Explore how salvation is a Person and not a religious system. That person, Jesus, is dedicated to delivering us from our past failures and sin, giving us peace in the present, and securing our future with Him. To appreciate Him adequately we must make certain we do not have an “evil conscience,” an instinctive belief that to feel accepted with God we must add religious works to the work of Christ.

CHAPTER 5 Acceptance and the Holy Spirit
Two payments have been made that should cause the believer to feel accepted: The Son was a payment for sin to the Father, and the Holy Spirit is a permanent down-payment to us signifying God’s intention to finish our salvation. The Holy Spirit also has a primary ministry of reminding us that God is our Heavenly Dad, and He wants to have a principled and affectionate relationship with us.

CHAPTER 6 Acceptance and Trust
Explore how trust plays a central role in the spiritual life. The Trinity functions by trust, and trust brings us into that circle of love. Trust, or faith, has some false forms and one true one; we must know how they differ.

CHAPTER 7 Acceptance and Our Identity
Explore how a Christian shares the same quality of relationship that Jesus has with the Father. This is because we are identified with Christ by being placed in union with Him. Acceptance of this truth gives us the freedom to have an open and heart-warming relationship with the Father. Our relationship does not depend upon what we have done or how we view our past, but our personal friendship is based upon what Christ has done for us and our being viewed as joined to Him.

CHAPTER 8 Acceptance and Moods: Walking by the Spirit
Explore how walking by means of the Spirit addresses the moods and appetites of the flesh. We will note the negative power of this twin threat. We will find having a healthy relationship with the Trinity delivers us from the power of lusts and moods and brings us spiritual resources.

CHAPTER 9 Acceptance and Fruit: Walking by the Spirit
Explore the different ministries the Spirit of God has to us. At the same time, we must recognize how radically different His ministry is to that of the flesh. We are commanded to walk by the Spirit, to be led by the Spirit, to have the fruit of the Spirit in our lives, and to take individual steps into life by the Spirit.

CHAPTER 10 Acceptance and Prayer
Discover how our relationship with God the Father is expanded through prayer. Prayer is based neither on the investment of time nor the multiplication of words. Instead, our prayer life is based on a set of issues we must face daily. These issues determine how we relate to God as a Father and the world about us.

CHAPTER 11 Acceptance and Sin
Explore how we are to deal with the effects of sin and the acts of sin in our lives. Sin affects us internally and affects the Trinity. When we sin, the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit each respond differently to us. This makes confession of wrongdoing critically important in our lives.

CHAPTER 12 Acceptance and Service
God the Father could not think of a greater or nobler role for His Son than to send Him on a mission of Rescue. The Son was sent to serve, to suffer, to ascend to Heaven, and to be rewarded by His reign over the universe and the church. We, too, are called to participate in the family business of rescue, and to consciously choose to replicate Christ’s ministry in our lives. We have been sent as daughters and sons of God. We are to choose to serve and to suffer. We will ascend in the rapture, and be rewarded by participating in Christ’s reign. God could not think of a greater or more noble role for us than to participate in Christ’s life pattern. This life pattern gives overall meaning to our lives.

Becoming Who God Intended

A New Picture for Your Past

A Healthy Way of Managing Your Emotions

A Fresh Perspective on Relationships

by Dr. David Eckman

Harvest House Publishers

Your imagination is filled with pictures of reality. These pictures reveal your true “heart beliefs”—the beliefs that  shape your feelings and reactions to other people, to circumstances, and to God.  Becoming Who God Intended shows you how God’s Spirit can build new, biblical pictures in your heart and imagination.

Perhaps you’re:

  • struggling with anxiety, guilt, or habitual sins
  • frustrated because your experience doesn’t seem to match what the Bible talks about
  • wondering if your emotions and feelings fit into the Christian life at all
If so, you may be working from the wrong set of pictures.

GOD HAS A GREAT NEW PICTURE FOR YOU!
Getting the true pictures in your mind—grasping reality from God’s perspective—will help bring your thoughts and emotions under control. It will lead you to a life filled with the positive emotions of love, joy, and peace, and you will finally be able to live out the richness of true Christianity…the life God the Father has always intended for you.

About the Author


David Eckman, PhD, grew up in a dysfunctional family and came to the Lord as a teen. His emotions remained frozen through years of theological study and pastoring, until he finally gained a picture of how God truly loved him. When he became dean and professor at Western Seminary, he began to do extensive personal counseling; and in 1997 he cofounded BWGI Ministries, which seeks to bring about spiritual transformation through helping people understand who they are in Christ.

Comments from Authors, Pastors, and church members…

“David Eckman is a man you can trust… His teaching resonates with God’s wisdom and compassion”

Stu Weber
Author of Tender Warrior
and Four Pillars of a Man’s Heart

“I am astonished the impact your book Becoming Who God Intended is having on me! It is answering questions about myself and the pitfalls I seem to get into over and over.  My fear and anxiety has been replaced with the love, joy, and peace of the Holy Spirit!  Your book has profoundly put into focus many aspects of my life that I was unable to put together myself. Thank you so much!  I will suggest your book for my small group because I think it is imperative for every Christian to read.”

Unsolicited comment from
a reader in California

“I have read Becoming Who God Intended and found it one of the best, most helpful books I have every read. I have read many good books, thinking ‘Yes, I should change’, but nothing would really happen. This book has made a real difference! Thank you. Dr. Eckman’s teachings on God’s personal, passionate delight in me have transformed how I think about God, which has in turn transformed the way I do ministry. I now share with greater personal depth of meaning the fact that God truly loves them, because His love has begun to transform my thinking.”

Holly Menzer
Campus Crusade for Christ
NDSU, Fargo, ND

“How do you personally experience the transforming intimacy with the Father so kindly offered to us in Jesus?  Living openly and freely with the Father provides the joy we all seek and the power we all need…not just for ourselves but for the dear people we love and minister to in our congregations.

At times the sorrow of trapped lives and broken relationships in our churches become more than our souls can endure.  Is the Gospel truly transformational?  Can the Holy Spirit perform the life changes today that we rejoice in reading about on the pages of the New Testament?  How does it happen?  Really, how does God set a heart free and keep it from enslavement to the flesh and it’s appetites?  Where’s the joy that Jesus promised and died for?

My friend Dr. David Eckman has answered these questions for me from the pages of scripture.  God has used David in my life, and that of thousands of others to walk us down the biblical path of freedom, joy, and a rich experience of the Father’s affection.  David is a biblical scholar who opens treasure chests of scriptural truth that allow us to see just how good and powerful our Savior really is.

For your own delight and for the life-change and freedom of your people, I’d encourage you to pour over the pages of Dr. David Eckman’s Becoming Who God Intended, by Harvest House publishers.  Get this book in the hands of your congregation and watch their hearts and lives experience the freedom that Jesus paid so dearly to give them. ”

People from all walks of life give in to temptations and adopt patterns of secrecy and shame. Using groundbreaking research and offering compassionate understanding rooted deeply in Scripture, David Eckman shares:

  • how and why unhealthy appetites grip people and trap them in a fantasy world
  • how God responds gently to weakness and failure
  • how shame and guilt disappear when we realize His passionate delight in us
  • how four great experiences of the spiritual life break the addiction cycle
  • how enjoyment of our relationship with God actually guards us from addiction
Readers will discover how to break the pattern of out–of–control desires and extend grace, not judgment, to those facing such struggles. This is a much–needed Christian look at fighting addiction.

David Eckman’s excellent book SEX, FOOD & GOD is a must read for every Christian and even non-Christians. The beautiful, inspiring, heart warming message woven throughout the book is that God is not distant but close and wants to be their Heavenly Father, even their ‘daddy.’

How many Christians are really living the abundant life? Many say they know God loves them but how many really know that their Heavenly Father LIKES them and has a passionate delight in them? His love is not based on how well they perform or if they are struggling with addictions; God is not there to punish them but to bless them. This is a message that everyone needs to hear – not once but many times.

This book is liberating because our focus becomes our true identity in Christ and the wonderful, unconditional love and kindness of our heavenly Father. Be blessed and read this great book!” –Bob & Geri Boyd
Bob & Gerri Boyd are hosts for the Issues in Education Radio show that is heard on over 500 radio stations in North America:

David Eckman’s wisdom and vision helped me come face to face with “Issues I thought I had addressed long ago…The pain I have lived with so long is now gone, thanks to being able to give all of my family background over to God.” –Cheryl, Sacramento, California

“In reaching our students in the areas of their heart…In dealing with areas of addictions, eating disorders, and sexual disorders, nothing we’ve done has been more effective than what David Eckman’s material has done for us.” –Tim Rule, Northwest Associate Director Campus Crusade for Christ

The workbook is unusual in that it develops biblical passages as a means to illuminate our humanity, and God’s intention that couples and singles learn how to become part of interdependent relationships.

Healthy Relationships contains 6 chapters with 5 readings in each chapter. It can be used over a 6 week period, or for more in depth study it can be used over a 30 week period using one reading per week.



Chapter Outline


CHAPTER 1 Humanity’s Creation
Explore what it means to be human. See how God created the world and the great purpose He gave humanity as the pinnacle of His creation. Look at God’s original intent for man and woman. Examine how He intended woman and man to work together as an interdependent team, as “one flesh”.

CHAPTER 2 The Teams’ Failure
See the challenge that God allowed to come upon this interdependent team. With that challenge, the team failed. In their failure are many valuable lessons for us to learn. The greatest lesson is that God should be trusted.

CHAPTER 3 Ineffective Communication Patterns
In Genesis 3 and in life, four negative miscommunication patterns appear again and again: blaming, placating, rationalizing, and distracting. They are responses to powerful emotions within.

CHAPTER 4 Healthy Communication
Discover that effective communication describes what is going on inside of us, and that it is shared for the other person’s benefit. It is balanced by our own sympathetic listening to the other person.

CHAPTER 5 What Is Headship?
Discover that the New Testament teaching of the Headship of the male in marriage relationships is a powerful extension of the Old Testament teaching that the wife is the great helper, or Azer, like unto God.

CHAPTER 6 The Art of Forgiveness
In human relationships forgiveness is a necessity to sustain a friendship with a spouse or any other friend. This forgiveness is not only important relationally, it is important to God.

Creating a Healthy Family Workbook

Breaking the Dysfunctional Cycle
by Dr. David Eckman

Creating a Healthy Family is a powerful tool to enable a person to enter into adult relationships in a healthy way. It does this through two means: first, by helping the person to understand the influence of their family background, and secondly, by showing the person how to proceed from that background to fully functioning relationships.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

Most books about family life don’t appreciate how family background influences adult functioning. This one does!

The book describes how a healthy family functions and how such is based on a positive identity. From there, it develops a positive picture of family roles. It also teaches gender differences and how to appreciate them.

The latter half of the book is on how to manage emotions in family relationships. It addresses common pitfalls in one’s emotional life and how to use those emotions in an effective way. Finally, it discusses the basis of personal worth in relationships. That topic is developed to free individuals from codependency and a sense of worthlessness. When a person is done with the book, they will understand the effects of an unhealthy family background and how to go on a pilgrimage toward health.

Chapter Outline



CHAPTER 1 A Healthy Family
Discover that healthy families have positive identities, deep affection, and happiness skills. Dysfunctional families are dedicated to minimizing pain and keeping people at a distance.

CHAPTER 2 A Healthy Identity
Explore the idea of how our self image (how we instinctively view ourselves) is a controlling reality in our lives. In our culture we are preoccupied with what we know and do, but we overlook the picture of ourselves we carry in our hearts. Examines the importance of how we view ourselves and how we view our God.

CHAPTER 3 Trust: The First Skill
Explore how trust plays a central role in the spiritual life. God functions by trust, and trust brings us into His circle of love. Trust, or faith, has some false forms but only one true form.

CHAPTER 4 Not Becoming Our Emotions
Many people do not stand apart from their emotions. Instead, they become what they feel. Maturity means that we observe how we feel, change those emotions if we need to, and manage the ones we choose to keep.

CHAPTER 5 Dealing With Confusing Emotions
Often the emotional life of people in unhealthy homes is confused. Clear definitions of how emotions work and consistent, healthy practice can revolutionize the emotional life. We are to live off the primary emotions of love, joy, and peace, and manage the reactive emotions of anger, hurt, anxiety, and shame.

CHAPTER 6 Worth
Our culture does not provide an adequate basis for human worth. Unfortunately in our world, you are worth only what you can do or the amount of money you have. In Christianity we are worth a Son to God. Therefore, we have a solid reason for a deep sense of value.

Course: Becoming What God Intended – Course 1: Foundations

Our online courses provide high quality, multimedia rich, interactive relational education worldwide via the internet. This course presents the crucial first eight chapters of the Book of Romans, isolating three core values that define a friendship with God. These core values are: a guilt free environment because of the gift of God’s righteousness, a worthwhile relationship with God the Father because we are WORTH A SON  to Him, and a new Identity in Christ. These create the basis for a vibrant and transparent relationship with God (Romans 6:11). This course is first in a series of three.

The course is not preoccupied with what we should know or do but it is occupied with the Biblical process of changing our inner life: our inner world of emotions, imagination, instincts, and desires or appetites. It will describe how God has abandoned humanity to its own insides: its appetites, emotions, and limited and false thinking.

It will go on to show how all of that can be radically changed by understanding our Identity in Christ and how to have a personal relationship with God the Father. In the process it will show us how to change our appetites to godly ones, change our oppressive moods with the fruit of the Spirit, and change our limited selfish thinking to reflect the thoughts of Christ.

The course develops the three core values of Romans: a guilt free environment (chapter 3), a worthwhile relationship (chapter 5), and a new Identity (chapter 6). This will bring a new freshness and innocence into the life of the believer. This course is then followed by “Integrations” and “Applications.”

Course Syllabus


1. Course Introduction: This introduction discusses how understanding Romans and its core values profoundly changes our inner life.

2. The Collapse of Identity. Romans 1
When early humanity embraced idolatry, God turned humanity over to its own insides, its appetites, its emotions, and its own limited thinking.

3. The Collapse of Morality and Relationships. Romans 2-3
Morality and religion do not work; they only leads to hypocrisy. Human beings have become dangerous and a radical new way of living is called for.

4. A Guilt-Free Environment. Romans 3-4
The first core value of Romans is introduced: a guilt-free environment before God. This is through faith as a gift.

5. A Worthwhile Relationship. Romans 5
The second core value is introduced: we are more valuable to God than time, the troubles we experience, and our sin. WE ARE WORTH A SON TO GOD THE FATHER!

6. A New Identity. Romans 6
The third core value: God sees us differently than we see ourselves. We have been joined to Christ’s death and resurrection so we can have the same quality of relationship to the Father that Christ has.

7. The New Power. Romans 6
These three core values define our friendship with God and deals with the problem of sin within and liberates us for a spiritual life.

8. The Collapse of the Law. Romans 7
Paul makes it absolutely clear that we are called to live our lives by the power of the Holy Spirit, our union with Christ, and a living relationship with God the Father. We are not to live our lives by moral performance.

9. The Center of All: Trinitarian Love. Romans 8
What drives all of this is the never abandoning love of God the Father and the saving love of Jesus Christ!

Course Syllabus


Each lesson should be slowly gone through while reading the book Knowing the Heart of the Father by David Eckman.

Lesson 1. This course first addresses the critical issue of human identity. Identity is the instinctive picture we have of ourselves painted across our hearts. This very creative lecture shows that identity controls human relationships, the affairs of nations, activity, and ethics.

Lesson 2. This is an exploration of how Christ has entirely satisfied the Father concerning the issue of our sin. Isaiah 52-53 is a fifteen-line Hebrew poem that presents Christ as a substitute for His own fourteen times. This poem illustrates that propitiation or satisfaction comes from the Father’s profound satisfaction with the Servant’s (His Son) substitutionary work. We have to enter the Father’s satisfaction by faith.

Lesson 3. This examines what it means to live in a worthwhile relationship with people and God. Notice how Lesson 1 dealt with the third core value, Identity, Lesson 2 with the first core value, a guilt free environment, and Lesson 3 deals with worth. This explores how God has treated us in a worthwhile way and how Christian spirituality is an exploration of how well the Father is treating us.

Lesson 4. Hebrews 1-6 is closely examined to show that Christ is superior to the Old Testament system and that He has brought us an acceptance that should set us free and help us walk by faith. This study shows that Christ is superior to seven institutions and realities from the Old Testament.

Lesson 5. This study takes us to the end of Hebrews. It attacks the “Christ plus” mentality that feels to be truly accepted by the Father we must add our works to the work of Christ. It examines the five types of consciences that are in the New Testament and shows how to get rid of an “evil conscience” and how to obtain a good conscience. Finally, it emphasizes that we should not rely on our own efforts but should walk by faith with our New Father, and also accept the shame of our crucified Savior who was rejected by the Jerusalem leaders.

1. Replication of Christ’s Life
This lecture reviews the pattern of Christ’s life and shows that the same pattern is expected of our lives.

Paul had a corporate goal for the Christians in Philippi that they would serve one another as Christ who is God served them.

3. Paul the Apostle and Addiction
Paul in his letter to the Corinthians addresses the issue of addiction (primarily sexual addiction), and shows how the core values introduced in the Foundations course apply to this area of life.

4. The Holy Spirit and Addiction

Living Within His Light

This audio clip is the first in a series of four messages from Dr. David Eckman that deal with the barriers in our minds that keep us from a vibrant relationship with God. In this forty-five minute clip, Dr. Eckman discusses how to deal with the first barrier, the false belief that we must perfect ourselves before coming into God’s presence and talking with Him.

Additional DescriptionMore Details

By walking his audience through 1 John Chapter 1, Dr. Eckman explains how we are called to be transparent with God about everything in our lives, including our sin and imperfection. In fact, God considers it a compliment that we share our sin and imperfection with Him. As we live in His light, we are liberated through the cleansing of our sin.

Living Within Simplicity

This is one of the four messages in the “Living Within” series. See the others: Living Within His Light, Living Within Overflow, Living Within Confidence, Living Within Simplicity.



Living Within Overflow

This audio clip is the second in a series of four, called “Living Within.” Aiming to help his listeners break down the barriers that prevent us from enjoying the affection God has for us, Dr. David Eckman uses 1 John Chapter 4 to demonstrate the love and affection we can feel from God. We should not believe, as we are tempted to, that we cannot accept the love of God until we earn it. It is a gift freely given that we are called to accept as we are.

As followers of Christ and children of God the Father, we are called to step into the relationship between God the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, and to then experience the love and joy that the three members of the Trinity have for each other. As we learn to live in the overflow of this divine love and affection, it will then also pour out of us and onto the people around us. As we love those around us out of this love, love is, as 1 John 4 says, made complete.

Living Within Simplicity

This is one of the four messages in the “Living Within” series. See the others: Living Within His Light, Living Within Overflow, Living Within Confidence, Living Within Simplicity.



Living Within Confidence

The third clip in a series of four called “Living Within,” this audio clip by Dr. David Eckman shows listeners how we can have confidence before God instead of living in fear of the Judgment Seat of Christ. As 1 John will continue to demonstrate, this confidence is something we can have when we die, but it is also a truth that we can live in every day.

As the series previously talks about the freedom of living in a transparent relationship with God and in the overflow of His love and affection, the natural next step is having confidence from that relationship. We can feel safe because we know we are loved by God!

Living Within Simplicity

This is one of the four messages in the “Living Within” series. See the others: Living Within His Light, Living Within Overflow, Living Within Confidence, Living Within Simplicity.



Living Within Simplicity

Christianity is relatively simple. It simply requires that a degenerate sinner want to be rescued and loved. God takes the leading role in everything else. The hard part, however, is breaking through the barriers in our minds that prevent us from having a vibrant relationship with God. In this fourth and final audio clip from the series “Living Within,” Dr. David Eckman reviews each of these barriers and explains how God helps us overcome them.

Using 1 John as a guide, Dr. Eckman will explain how we are called to be transparent with God, to accept His love without earning it, and to feel safe in the knowledge of His love and acceptance. He will also touch on why we feel nervous about terms like “obedience” and “commandments,” and how God simplifies the rules for us.

This is the mentored Sex, Food, and God course. The participant will interact with the mentor two times within the course for an hour apiece. Also interaction via messaging will occur at the end of each session with regards to the quiz and journaling or question answering.

Additional Course Info

Addictive behaviors such as internet pornography, marijuana, cutting, smoking, alcohol, sexual immorality, and others are examined by telling the stories of six women and men. With each story a part of the spiritual solution to temptation, compulsion and addiction is presented. In addition, a dramatic or comedic vignette forcefully drives home a truth. Addictions follow a pattern known as the addictive cycle. In this course students will discover keys to dismantling this cycle through developing elements of a vibrant spiritual life.

In this course you will meet Sasha (addicted to pornography), Scott (addicted to cutting), Kimberly (bulimic), Nathan (addicted to drugs and pornography), Heidi (sexual addiction), and Camille (family dysfunction and addiction). Each story is powerfully told and teaches the addiction cycle and addiction equation, and explains how the truth of God as a sympathetic and understanding Father breaks through our dysfunction and brings healing and hope.

The first goal of the Sex, Food & God course is to learn how the addictive cycle works. This is the pattern that drive the two dozen or more addictive activities that people struggle with. As we learn this we can also see how the addictive cycle can be taken apart piece by piece. To drive this truth home, these eight different people will tell their stories. These individuals will be interviewed singly and as a group. We will particularly address pornography, food, and alcohol addiction.

The interviews and group interviews are an integral part of the course because what those individuals have gone through will strike a common chord in all of us. Their stories will help us stand outside of our struggles and understand ourselves and our weaknesses better. Further, the stories will encourage us with the positive results that are now in their lives.

If you choose to work with a mentor, which is recommended, the truths that you are learning can become personalized for your life. In working with a mentor and following the strategies described, a person struggling with an addictive behavior will be given the tools for success.

With a mentor, the participant will interact with the mentor two times within the course for an hour apiece. Interaction via messaging will also occur at the end of each session with regards to the quizzes, journaling or question answering.


Other Information


We expect that the participant will go through the material thoughtfully, meaning this course should take a minimum of twenty hours and a maximum of forty hours.
