Summary: This completely revised new edition not only interweaves updates and refinements throughout but also adds two entirely new chapters, on Jonah, Job, and Daniel; and on the Psalms. As was true of the first edition, God’s Healing Strategy, Revised Edition, 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.
“The revisions are
spot-on for contemporary issues. How do Christian believers relate to
other faiths? Where is God when life falls apart? The Bible wrestles
with those questions without pat answers. This book puts us in touch
with that biblical struggle." —Lynn
Jost, Vice President and Dean of Fresno Pacific Biblical Seminary
Praise for the first edition
and groups who turn to the Bible with this book in hand will find
themselves engaged in lively discussion and strengthened in their love
for this great story of God’s plan for our world." —Nancy R. Heisey, Undergraduate
Dean, Eastern Mennonite University
