Dr Gordon is a devout Christian clinician who lets God into every aspect of his professional practice, and then offers the fruit of his deep reflections. His scholarly book will repay careful study on many different levels: as a guide for Christians struggling with health issues, as a guide and reference for practitioners such as hospital chaplains, and as a basis for Bible study groups.
He reiterates the link between truth and health; that there is no way to the Father except through Christ; and that the essence of recovering health is accepting Jesus as personal Saviour, repenting, and being guided by the Holy Spirit. These are familiar phrases, but this book gives examplars and biblical references to help us appreciate when they may be operating in our lives.
I did not find it an easy read, mainly because the author's reach is so wide and his grasp so thorough. This meant engaging in several different ways, which I found I could not do all at one reading. This level of engagement needed may put off many who would benefit. Alternatives, the work could be presented as several books to make it more plalatable to a popular audience.
