Description : In a Eucharistic Holy Hour, we listen and meditate on the Word of God. After the Lord has spoken, we respond in faith and prayer. Jesus the Healer gives us words for our response in personal prayer. Father Juan Serna’s little book of “Eucharist-Inspired and other Meditations” comes from the heart of his own prayer and personal reflections. His prayers give words to those very real sentiments we experience when we try to touch but the tassel of Jesus’ cloak. His sketches, which accompany each section, likewise speak profound thoughts of prayer. The penetrating eyes of Jesus are like the two-edged sword that pierces the depths of humanity. Father Juan’s drawings are as much a prayer as the devotional words he writes. His drawings and words are prayers we can use to find Jesus the Healer. —Bishop Stephen E. Blaire

Description : Life is a challenge: the challenges are rarely enjoyable and often life threatening, and/or associated with injury and life long crippling. Sooner or later, usually as a child, one meets the challenge of believing in a being far superior to man, the child is expected to accept an unquestioning belief that does not require proof or evidence. I am a Christian and such a setting is typical. However, throughout my life the experiences I faced always led to some degree of doubt that lay in the back of my mind all of my life. Then, my wife developed cancer in 2001 and given five years to live. She accepted it as she had all of the challenges we had faced in our marriage, quietly and rather serenely. I began to examine my own life and came to the conclusion: yes, I believe that there is a God, and that Jesus Christ, his son, if my savior and my healer, but that the proof of that belief is not necessarily based on faith alone. He is around me at all times and on all occasions. It is based on the experience of the numerous exigencies, or urgent conditions that pressed upon my entire family and the individuals alone. I have almost entirely based it on my numerous illnesses and accidents because I cannot honestly speak for my living relatives who are moving forward with their own lives as mine approaches its end. There were many discussions with my wife who helped me document my health difficulties in a rational sequence even as her cancer progressed. There was the oldest of my sisters with whom I was very close. and as children we never had secrets from one another. As adults I would visit her on numerous occasions .in Delta, CO. We always enjoyed taking a stroll in the Park with its nature walks adjacent to the rivers that give Delta its name. We spoke openly and honestly about our families, Her wisdom, like that of Elaine, my wife was calm and quiet. As a husband and brother, I did not acknowledge its value until too late. First there was my parents divorce when I was but a child. It led directly to a fragmented family that had to desperately struggle to stay together. Then there was mother's unrelenting struggle to keep us children together. She had neither experience nor an education. Her father had deserted her and her brother soon after their mother's death. When he was finally discovered him, he was well off and quickly told them to get lost. Thus it went on. The story tells the rest. Richard W. Leech

Description : It’s no secret that the center of Christianity has shifted from the West to the global South and East. While the truths of the Christian faith are universal, new contexts bring new questions, new understandings, and new expressions. What does this mean for theology? Is the Christian faith not only culturally translatable, but also theologically translatable?Timothy Tennent answers this question with a resounding yes. Theological reflection is alive and well in the majority world church, and these new perspectives need to be heard, considered, and brought into conversation with Western theologians. Global theology can make us aware of our own blind spots and biases. Because of its largely conservative stance, global theology has much to offer toward the revitalization of Western Christianity.Tennent examines traditional theological categories in conversation with theologians from across the globe, making this volume valuable for students, pastors, missionaries, and theologians alike.
Description : Jesus means so many things to different people... but he was known to many people as the one who healed lepers, made the lame walk and gave the blind back their sight. His amazing powers over death and sickness showed he was special...His power came from God, his father. Jesus' power can make a difference to our lives. Ask him to help you!
Description : In the present volume James Robinson completes his trilogy, which deals with the history of divine healing in the period 1906-1930. The first volume is a study of the years 1830-1890, and was hailed as a standard reference for years to come. The second book covers the years 1890-1906, and was acclaimed as a monumental achievement that combines careful historical scholarship and a high degree of accessibility. This volume completes the study up to the early 1930s and, like the other two works, has a transatlantic frame of reference. Though the book gives prominence to the theology and practice of divine healing in early Pentecostalism, it also discusses two other models of healing, the therapeutic and sacramental, promoted within sections of British and American Anglicanism. Some otherwise rigorous Fundamentalists were also prepared to practice divine healing. The text contributes more widely to medical and sociocultural histories, exemplified in the rise of psychotherapy and the cultural shift referred to as the Jazz Age of the 1920s. The book concludes by discussing the major role that divine healing plays in the present rapid growth of global Christianity.
