Item description for Death and Life in America: Biblical Healing and Biomedicine by Raymond Downing & Jason Byassee...

Raymond Downing, a family physician for 30 years, believes that suffereing and healing are essentially spiritual experiences that are the roots of death and life. To fully understand these spiritual realities we must use biblical language and examine the power of bio-medicine. As he enters into a dialogue between biblical healing and bio-medicine, Downing offers a bold critique of western medicine and medical technology.

Publishers Description
Raymond Downing offers a bold critique of western medicine and sees medical care as one of the fallen "principalities and powers" in need of redemption. But Downing's hope lies beyond biomedicine in biblical healing, especially the healing miracles of Jesus. In conversation with the Bible, Ivan Illich, William Stringfellow, Susan Sontag, and others, Downing revisits how Westerners approach medicine. He sees suffering and healing as essentially spiritual experiences at the roots of death and life.
