What does the Bible say about healing? In this volume, respected biblical scholar Frederick Gaiser offers a close theological reading of biblical texts on health and healing, that engage questions of contemporary theological and pastoral concern. Gaiser considers 15 key Old and New Testament passages, examining their significance for the church’s understanding of healing and its ministry today. He explores issues such as God’s role in healing; the relationship between healing and prayer; the place of healing in biblical theology; God’s healing and medical science; the healing work of Jesus; healing, salvation, and cure; the relationship between sickness and sin; and healing under the sign of the cross. The final chapter draws together insights from the various chapters and summarizes Gaiser’s findings.

Healing in the Bible offers fresh insights for anyone interested in Christian views on healing, from professors and students in Bible, theology, and pastoral ministry courses to thoughtful lay readers and pastors.
