Product Description

Inspiration for churches seeking to develop whole-person ministries!Dust and Breath invites the Christian community into an expansive vision of salvation that includes ministries of health and healing. Inspired by the work of a remarkable ministry in Memphis, Tennessee, Kendra Hotz and Matthew Mathews show why the church must care about both faith and health, and do by grounding their ideas in solid Christian theology.

In 1987 Dr. G. Scott Morris opened a medical clinic called the Church Health Center in a poor Memphis neighborhood. What began as a clinic for the working uninsured has grown into a nationally recognized faith-based healthcare organization.

In this book Hotz and Mathews articulate the theological significance of the Church Health Center and other church ministries like it. Replete with real-life stories and practical examples, Dust and Breath shows how such ministries can help give hope and restore wholeness to communities in amazing ways.

Endorsements

God created us to be whole human beings. Our bodies and spirits are one, yet the healthcare system has tried to lead the church to care only about the spiritual world. Hotz and Mathews wonderfully remind us of the theological roots of our humanity. Their message is one that every person of faith needs to hear.
-Scott Morris
Executive Director, Church Health Center

As a former director at the Church Health Center (CHC), I am deeply impressed with how Hotz and Mathews have captured the stories of the CHC patients, staff, and culture in their book Dust and Breath. Their theological framework offers a deep, insightful, and elegant means of accurately and vividly sharing the ways that CHC staff daily integrate faith and health in their delivery of compassionate medical care.
