The One Year Book of Healing By Dr. Reggie Anderson

I was drawn to this book by the title. The past year for me has been particularly challenging with heath issues. I was even more interested when I found the author was a Christian doctor! How wonderful to have a physician that not only has medical knowledge but puts the Lord first as a part of his practice. For three decades Dr. Anderson has cared for families in his country practice in a small town outside Nashville, Tennessee.
The book is divided into 12 months, and each one begins with a“check-up” where the good doctor with look at commonplace experiences both physical and emotional one might face. He gives a spiritual challenge for that month to enrich your relationship with God. Then there is a devotional for each day based upon his true life experiences he has learned by seeing Lord’s healing in the lives of his patients. Included with each day is a scripture, “Today’s RX”, a suggestion, or question for your study and a short prayer.
Seven prevailing truths are shared at the beginning that he has seen repeated lives of those he has cared for.
1. God is the one that heals.
2. Sometimes emotional healing must come first.
3. Healing comes in many forms.
4. Our hope for healing is only in Jesus Christ.
5. Prayer is an important part of the healing process.
6. Healthy living leads to healthy lives.
7. Sometimes we much overcome obstacles to healing.
I liked the fact the devotionals were genuine testimonies and godly wisdom gleaned from a lifetime of service. If found each one inspiring and encouraging. I book you will want to read and/or give as a gift!
I received a copy of this book from Tyndale Publishers. The opinions I have stated are my own.
