For Your Health:
A Look into God's Methods for Healing
Lorna Dueck and Dr. Nell DeBoer
Every generation must wrestle with the interpretation and practice of the miraculous. Our health fails, accidents happen, and disappointment over mind and bodies that are weak can become a crushing disappointment. Into any health decline, the Christian is challenged to do something through the ancient teaching of Holy Scripture.
Is anyone among you sick? Let them call the elders of the church to pray over him and anoint him with oil in the name of the Lord...the prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective (James 5:14–16, NIV).
Lorna Dueck and Dr. Nell DeBoer have sat at the cross-section of hope and faith in their unique roles as journalist and hospital chaplain. In their combined work of For Your Health: A Look into God’s Methods for Healing, they document what happens when people put the mystery of God, obedience to pray for healing, and broken health into spiritual practice. Through a well-selected collection of ailments and healings that are true and diverse, this book explores encounters with God that have helped people get better in body and mind.
