Item description for Your Faith Has Made You Well: Preaching the Miracles; Cycle B by Charles L. Aaron, Jr....

Overview
This is an admirable example of pastoral theology at its best. Aaron's discussions of the historical background and theological significance of each text are thoroughly informed and articulate. Equally helpful are the insights he brings to the understanding of the pastoral implications of each text and the strategies appropriate to preaching the text. This book proves that some of the best biblical theology for pastors can be written by a pastor. David Bartlett Lantz Professor of Preaching Yale University Divinity School The moving accounts of Jesus' astonishing power to cast out demons and heal physical ailments are singularly compelling preaching texts with rich possibilities for proclamation -- they have much to teach us about God's grace and the ministry of the church, as well as the spiritual dimension of evil. But these passages are also fraught with homiletic peril, presenting preachers with a tangle of problems and conflicting beliefs. In light of modern scientific knowledge and technological sophistication, some Christians question if these miracles really occurred. Others wonder why only some people experience such healings, and there is a temptation to simplistically equate lack of healing with lack of faith. Should we expect similar miracles today? What is the link between faith and wellness? And most important of all, what do these strange yet fascinating stories mean for us today? Your Faith Has Made You Well helps preachers negotiate this minefield with a detailed exploration of eleven miracle narratives appearing in Cycle B of the Revised Common Lectionary. It's packed with stimulating ideas and illustrations for developing dynamic sermons, including a supplemental chapter with numerous examples of contemporary miracles and healings. Each miracle is examined from several perspectives to produce a holistic understanding: ? historical background -- What Old Testament narratives or ideas are reflected in the story? What do we know about the understanding of medicine and health in Jesus' time? ? literary analysis -- How does the plot unfold? How are the characters developed? What literary devices are employed? ? theological reflection -- What does the text affirm or imply about God, creation, the ministry of Christ, salvation, and the meaning of evil? What does it teach us about faith, the Christian life, and the mission of the church? ? pastoral reading -- What insight does the text give us about the human condition?
