Healing is one of the fundamental aspects of Christian ministry, reaching into every area of personal and public life. Leading ethicist David Atkinson asks whether suffering can ever be creative and explores how today's conversations between theology, psychology and medical science are shaping our understanding of healing. He offers a practical and pastoral theology that embraces healing's different dimensions, from the biblical notion of health and wholeness, to healing in relation to sickness and disease, environmental health, emotional health, and pastoral care and counselling.
'In this book David Akinson brings a rounded approach to the church's ministry ... I commend this book to anyone who wants to better understand the Churches ministry of healing.' -- Terry Drummond 201109
