Publisher's Description

Healing is one of the fundamental aspects of Christian ministry, reaching into every area of personal and public life. Leading ethicist David Atkinson asks whether suffering can ever be creative and explores how today's conversations between theology, psychology and medical science are shaping our understanding of healing.

He offers a practical and pastoral theology that embraces healing's different dimensions, from the biblical notion of health and wholeness, to healing in relation to sickness and disease, environmental health, emotional health, and pastoral care and counselling.

Author Bio

David Atkinson recently retired as the Bishop of Thetford. An outstanding moral theologian and ethicist, he previously taught ethics and psychology at Corpus Christi College, Oxford.
