Inspiration for churches seeking to develop whole-person ministries!Dust and Breath invites the Christian community into an expansive vision of salvation that includes ministries of health and healing. Inspired by the work of a remarkable ministry in Memphis, Tennessee, Kendra Hotz and Matthew Mathews show why the church must care about both faith and health, and do by grounding their ideas in solid Christian theology.
In 1987 Dr. G. Scott Morris opened a medical clinic called the Church Health Center in a poor Memphis neighborhood. What began as a clinic for the working uninsured has grown into a nationally recognized faith-based healthcare organization.
In this book Hotz and Mathews articulate the theological significance of the Church Health Center and other church ministries like it. Replete with real-life stories and practical examples, Dust and Breath shows how such ministries can help give hope and restore wholeness to communities in amazing ways.
