Description : Realizing the potential you have to awaken to your power as an enlightened being is central to authentic healing. There is a significant distinction between superficially healing wounds and authentically healing. If you feel ready to surrender all pain and struggle, Divine Healing is a must read. Delivered as both a story and a practice, the author compassionately shares her journey to become whole after the suicide of her daughter in 2005. Though written in the context of the parental grief experience, Divine Healing is intended for anyone who desires authentic healing. Each chapter, a journey in itself, reminds us of the eternal truths that teach that all healing is possible, despite the origin of any pain. The lessons, while not confined to only one experience in pain, reach into the core root of all suffering and will guide anyone through any difficulty to find peace and joy. Not only will you develop a richer understanding of suffering and healing, including viewing loss and grief differently, but by learning to work with the angels, you will reclaim your power as the authentic being you already are. You will learn to honor all of your hurtful experiences and trust in your ability to become whole on your own terms. Realizing you are the catalyst for your own powerful transformation, Divine Healing inspires you to courageously want more for your life, and teaches you how to continually manifest the life you were meant to find and enjoy through a realistic, heartfelt practice.
Description : Faith in the Great Physician tells the story of how participants in the evangelical divine healing movement of the late nineteenth century transformed the ways Americans coped with physical affliction and pursued bodily health. Examining the politics of sickness, health, and healing during this period, Heather D. Curtis encourages critical reflection on the theological, cultural, and social forces that come into play when one questions the purpose of suffering and the possibility of healing. Curtis finds that advocates of divine healing worked to revise a deep-seated Christian ethic that linked physical suffering with spiritual holiness. By engaging in devotional disciplines and participating in social reform efforts, proponents of faith cure embraced a model of spiritual experience that endorsed active service, rather than passive endurance, as the proper Christian response to illness and pain. Emphasizing the centrality of religious practices to the enterprise of divine healing, Curtis sheds light on the relationship among Christian faith, medical science, and the changing meanings of suffering and healing in American culture. -- James Benedict
Description : This collection of essays explores the significance of practice in understanding American Protestant life. The authors are historians of American religion, practical theologians, and pastors and were the twelve principal researchers in a three-year collaborative project sponsored by the Lilly Endowment. Profiling practices that range from Puritan devotional writing to twentieth-century prayer, from missionary tactics to African American ritual performance, these essays provide a unique historical perspective on how Protestants have lived their faith within and outside of the church and how practice has formed their identities and beliefs. Each chapter focuses on a different practice within a particular social and cultural context. The essays explore transformations in American religious culture from Puritan to Evangelical and Enlightenment sensibilities in New England, issues of mission, nationalism, and American empire in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, devotional practices in the flux of modern intellectual predicaments, and the claims of late-twentieth-century liberal Protestant pluralism. Breaking new ground in ritual studies and cultural history, Practicing Protestants offers a distinctive history of American Protestant practice.

Description : The lies of homosexuality dissipate because a life of purity in Christ Jesus decidedly removes the homosexual deception. Each step toward Jesus brings us closer to His image, and we are changed. We emerge free to be exactly whom Father God created us to be. Leaving all secrets with honesty and transparency before God and man, forgiving ourselves and all abusers, we emerge in our true identity with a heterosexual desire. This desire for the opposite sex is as natural as apple pie. Leaving the judgments, the facades, the sins, and all idols, the stark truth remains. Our true identity is found in Jesus Christ alone.
Description : Barbara Ann Brennan continues her ground-breaking exploration of the human energy field, or aura—the source of our experience of health or illness. Drawing on many new developments in her teaching and practice, she shows how we can be empowered as both patients and healers to understand and work with our most fundamental healing power: the light that emerges from the very center of our humanity. In a unique approach that encourages a cooperative effort among healer, patient, and other health-care providers, Light Emerging explains what the healer perceives visually, audibly, and kinesthetically and how each of us can participate in every stage of the healing process. Presenting a fascinating range of research, from a paradigm of healing based on the science of holography to insights into the "hara level" and the "core star," Light Emerging is at the leading edge of healing practice in our time.
Description : This book is about one man's spiritual journey-walking and breathing the living Bible-during his pilgrimage to the Holy Land (Israel). This amazing journey flushed out doctrinal confusion, man's secular spin on religion, while cleansing painful personal mistakes for a spiritual transformation. This transformation started in September 2004 when God divinely healed his son, Luke. During this miracle, the author was changed by God's full interaction and the power of constant prayer swirling around him, which pushed him into a new covenant with the Lord. He decided to go to Israel in May 2006 for his fortieth birthday as a mid-life spiritual pilgrimage that forced him to go back to his earliest beginnings to fully understand his childhood, to stop blaming organized religion for his own mistakes, to see God as He really was, and to understand and commit to God's plan for his life. This new covenant was about personal forgiveness, a new kind of intimacy with the Lord, bringing God into the workplace and business decisions, and finally having the confidence to tell others all about Him.
