This is a book about Jesus the healer. Jesus was many things to his contemporaries, and he has been many things to his followers in the centuries since he walked on this earth, but one of the central roles ascribed to him is his healer role. His teachings are enormously important, and many of his teachings are themselves a source of healing, especially when he encourages his listeners not to succumb to anxiety or despair. 192 Pages. Softcover from John Knox Press.
