God's Healing Strategy
An Introduction to the Bible's Main Themes

Ted Grimsrud


"Individuals and groups who turn again to the Bible with Grimsrud’s book in hand will find themselves engaged in much lively discussion and strengthened in their love for this great story of God’s plan for our world.
Nancy R. Heisey, Associate Professor of Biblical Studies and Church History, Eastern Mennonite Univirsity; President-Elect, Mennonite World Conference

"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."
Daniel Smith-Christopher, Professor of Theological Studies (Old Testament), Loyola Marymount University, Los Angeles, California

"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 Christian education.
Douglas B. Miller, Associate Professor of biblical and Religious Studies, Tabor College, Hillsboro, Kansas

God’s 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, God’s 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 Bible’s 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.
