Item description for Healing and Suffering: Biblical and Pastoral Reflections by Keith Warrington...
Overview Occurrences of divine healing are increasingly accepted as phenomena that contemporary Christians may experience and pray for. Some of the Christian literature discussing such matters does not provide objective analysis of the issues involved and ignores important questions. Healing and Suffering offers important information, analysis, reflection and testimony on the issue from a biblical and pastoral point of view. Drawing on the teachings of the Gospels, Acts, Paul, and James, Keith Warrington offers a comprehensive and user-friendly resource that maintains biblical integrity while engaging with the issues in a context of objective evaluation and sensitivity.
Publishers Description Divine healing is accepted by most Christians. However, some Christian literature does not provide objective analysis of the issues involved, and sometimes moves in a wonderland of unreality with harmful pastoral consequences. Other believers doubt whether God supernaturally heals at all today. A healthy balance is needed to remind believers that God is with them in the shadows of suffering as well as health and wholeness. Healing and Suffering offers that balance, providing analysis, reflection and testimony concerning the relevant issues from a biblical and pastoral point of view. Drawing on the teachings of the New Testament, Keith Warrington offers a comprehensive and user-friendly resource that maintains biblical integrity whilst engaging with the issues in a context of objective evaluation and sensitivity. He argues that whilst the New Testament encourages us to pray for healing, it does not always lead us to expect that all sickness and suffering will be removed.
