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. 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. Lynn Jost, Vice President and Dean of Fresno Biblical Seminary, says that "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." Commenting on the first edition, Douglas B.

(p. 128)Although I read through it in a couple of days because it is a theme I have interest in, the book is in a group-study format.
