Jesus introduced healing into the Judaism of his day, and for the Church’s first three hundred years, healing was an important spiritual practice. In Contemplative Healing, author Francis Geddes describes healing prayer’s importance and recommends congregations renew this ancient Christian practice.
Geddes presents an overview of Christian healing for the church and beyond. It addresses society’s need for loving connection with one another and the source of our being within a broad Christian context. Contemplative Healing demonstrates the following essential points:
Science and healing need not be at odds.
Jesus introduced healing as a transforming spiritual practice.
Healing is grounded in love.
Contemplative Healing communicates how the loving spirit of God and Christ function in a community by alleviating pain and bringing wholeness.
“This book’s treatment of healing as a spiritual and Christian practice is important for Christians and the church in our time. It creates a framework for seeing healing within the practice of Jesus and early Christianity, attends to the relationship between healing and contemporary medical science, and describes how to introduce the practice of healing into local congregations.”
—MARCUS J. BORG, AUTHOR, THE HEART OF CHRISTIANITY
