Healing is one of the most beautiful gifts in God’s treasure chest of blessing. Not only did Jesus heal, he passed on the same ability to those who believe in him. This timely book, describes how the gift of healing has been rediscovered in recent years. It examines its holistic and evangelistic nature by drawing on the best insights of medicine, psychology and biblical spirituality.
At a time when people are increasingly aware of the importance of mental health it describes the nature and dynamics of inner healing, e.g., of low self-esteem, the father and mother wound, as well as such things as anxiety, depression and the effects of traumatic experiences. Because faith, of an expectant kind, is the key to Christian healing, the book shows how one can grow in this form of unhesitating trust while expressing it in tune with God’s will.
Holistic Healing, which is peppered with practical examples of healings of all kinds, stresses the therapeutic power of the Eucharist and the anointing of the sick, while addressing difficult questions such as, ‘why isn’t everyone healed?’ and ‘what is the significance of the coronavirus pandemic?’. Attain the answer to these questions and more, all the while discovering how faith, guided by God’s will, can heal us and others.
