Hard Questions About Healthand Healing – Andrew Fergusson

CMF 2005
RRP £8.00 (but £4 on 12-12 scheme!)

The book begins by looking at the foundations of what we believe as Christians, as a basis to approach the issues of health and healing. It discusses the need for a balance between the physical view on healing that most doctors have, and the spiritual view on healing that Christians might have, and how this gap could be bridged by the Church. The issue of cure versus healing is a key topic in the book. Healing includes aspects that are physical, social, psychological and spiritual and is therefore a much more holistic approach. A brief look at the issue of suffering is important in investigating the tension between the promise of a future free from all suffering and the broken world we live in now. Fergusson talks very practically about why and how we should pray for healing and how we can deal with the outcome – God always answers prayer but not always in the way we want. Many personal and clinical examples help to illustrate his points, and make this an extremely engaging and insightful read. I strongly recommend it!
