The workbook format of this volume, and an approach based on lectio divina, give structure to private meditation with God. The text illuminates 30 healing stories of Jesus. Upper Room Books.
Have you wanted healing and wholeness for yourself or for others? Have you ever wanted to receive something from Jesus that would bring wholeness to a wounded area of your life?
Those are the questions raised in The Spiritual Heart of Your Health. Wagner teaches readers that Jesus helped each person he met to be whole and healthy in body, in mind, in spirit, and in relationships.
Wagner looks at 30 healing stories of Jesus from the Gospels. In addition to offering a Bible study, Wagner teaches a process for healing prayer as we read and study these passages.
Basing his work on the lectio divina tradition of praying the scriptures, each meditation begins with a prayer. Wagner includes the text of scripture (usually from the Contemporary English Version), a short explanation of the passage, a brief quotation from church tradition, and questions for personal reflection. As readers use this approach to scripture, these healing stories become times to enter into God’s presence and to enter also into a place of increased healing and wholeness.
This book is styled as a workbook for either individual or small-group study and includes space for recording notes. Wagner also offers several options for a deeper experience of these biblical stories.
