Healing is crucial to Christian theology and ministry and has a great evangelistic power. Over the last fifty years, there has been a radical shift in social attitudes towards sickness and healing. Though there has always been a clear ministry for spiritual and pastoral care, the responsibilities of those ministering to the sick - and even the definition of sickness itself - have been challenged. Meanwhile, the popularity of 'alternative' healing and magical cults has grown. There is certainly no lack of accounts of those who have 'miraculously' recovered from 'incurable diseases', even at the point of death - scientific proof, however, is often wanting.The Healing Tradition of the New Testament is a scholarly analysis of the New Testament texts about the healing ministry of Jesus and an examination of the evidence for healing in the first four centuries of the Early Church. By returning to these earliest sources, Dr Pett reveals the original spiritual significance of the healing miracles of Jesus. He shows how this understanding of the true healing tradition can enrich the practice of Christianity today, restoring the health of the Church, society and the individual.

"I began the book with misgivings and doubts, but was increasingly impressed... Few books have attracted from me so many pencilled scrawls in the margins, most of them meaning "Amen to that!"
-The Rev Dr Neil Richardson, Methodist Recorder, 29/01/2016

"[A] substantial and scholarly work on the healing tradition of the New Testament. ... Here, surely, is a stimulus to further study and debate because Pett raises questions about current assumptions and practices on the Church's ministry of healing."
-Chrism, Vol. 52, No. 2, Autumn 2015

"...I feared that this might be a book by a well-meaning former hospital chaplain that has little relevance for the healing ministry today. I was wrong! Dr Pett obviously spent his retirement working carefully through the Gospel healing stories, unravelling the various strata in chronological order and reaching conclusions that are often origninal and immensely challenging."
-Robin Gill, Theology, Vol. 119 No. 4, July/August 2016

"This book would be appropriate for readers interest[ed] in reading a sharp critique of modern healing ministries"
-Craig Stephans, Theological Book Review, Vol. 27 No.1, 2016

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Adobe-DRM wird hier ein "harter" Kopierschutz verwendet. Wenn die notwendigen Voraussetzungen nicht vorliegen, können Sie das E-Book leider nicht öffnen. Daher müssen Sie bereits vor dem Download Ihre Lese-Hardware vorbereiten.
