"Individuals and groups who turn
again to the Bible with Grimsruds book in hand will
find themselves engaged in much lively discussion and
strengthened in their love for this great story of
Gods plan for our world.
"Even though Biblical Theology is
always risky business, Ted Grimsrud gives us good reason
to question whether the task is, in fact, as impossible
as many have proclaimed. Students and scholars of the
Bible often develop a strange fear of 'big picture'
discussions. This work, however, shows us why such
efforts can be highly productive."
"Ted Grimsrud has written an
excellent introduction to the Bible from an
Anabaptist/liberationist perspective. The studied breadth
and depth of the book make it ideal as an introductory
(upper level) high school or college text, upon which an
instructor would then build, or for use in adult
Gods Healing Strategy is both a defense of God and the Holy Scriptures, Old and New Testaments. As a pastor, college professor, and biblical theologian, Grimsrud argues his case clearly. . . . Each chapter is chock-full of stimulating discussion points making the book a cross between a refreshing Sunday sermon and a Bible study lesson. James E. Brenneman, in the Foreword
Summary: In lively and accessible style, Gods Healing Strategy portrays God's persevering love as the heart of the Bible's message. Bible study can focus on details at the expense of the Bibles overarching themes. Without losing sight of the details, this short but thorough book identifies God's healing love as the central theme of the Bible and challenges Christians to let that love shape lives today.
