Why am I sick? Is healing possible? Is it possible for me? If you're struggling with sickness or pain of any kind, you may find yourself asking these difficult questions. With unique training as both a doctor and a pastor, Andrew Butterworth has found answers by seeking God for healing through the complementary means of both medicine and prayer. In I'm Sick, Now What? Dr. Butterworth draws on his real-life experience to explain why sickness exists, the difference between physical sickness and spiritual sickness, and what steps the Christian can take to alleviate both. This book doesn't guarantee instant healing, but it does promise to answer your persistent questions about pain and to provide a practical and biblical guide to understanding sickness and approaching God for healing.
Dr. Andrew Butterworth is a pastor at Junction Church, Johannesburg, South Africa. Trained as a doctor at the University of St. Andrews and then the University of Manchester with an additional degree in Public Health, Dr. Butterworth worked in various hospitals around the United Kingdom's Greater Manchester area before transitioning to public health and church ministry in South Africa, where he now lives with his wife, Michelle.

Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5I'm Sick, Now What?October 25, 2016Laura HiltonHorseshoe Bend, ARAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4First, the disclaimer. "I was provided a free paperback copy of this book. All opinions are my own." That done, I'M SICK, NOW WHAT? is a good book to read. The doctor is a Christian and he was very inspiring. He's a retired doctor, and probably a preacher now.
Dr. Butterworth talked about his experiences as a doctor. I think the coolest thing about it is that he can actually lay his hand on somebody and heal them on the spot with prayer. That's the best part of the book in my opinion.
A really good book and will really inspire anyone who reads it. There are some true to life stories in there, and some biblical stories, and some mini sermons as Dr. Butterworth gives his thoughts on the scripture and real life.
If you are sick then I'M SICK, NOW WHAT? would be a good book to read.
nkwbookreviewer4 Stars Out Of 5"A Balanced Approach to Medicine and God's Healing"September 11, 2016nkwbookreviewerQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 4"I'm Sick Now What" by author Dr. Andrew Butterworth is a 283 page paperback published by Whitaker House Publishing. This Christian book says on its front cover "A Balanced Approach To Medicine and God's Healing" and is written by a doctor turned pastor.
This is a hard hitting, hold nothing back book. Divided into three sections it begins with Understanding Sickness, moves on to Removing Blocks to Healing, and concludes with Section Three: pursuing Healing. Each section has four chapters, and each chapter begins with a quote before giving readers information. The chapters are comprised of scripture, charts, outlines, questions, steps to help, and a multitude of information. At the end of each chapter are Key Points recapping what the author is stressing. Included at the end of the book is an appendix "Presence of the Gift of Healing in Operation in Every Century in the Church".
This is a scripturally based view on healing. It links medical and spiritual healing. Since the author is a doctor and pastor he has experience in both of these areas. The book is well written, organized, and researched. Author Butterworth has included many different questionnaires in his chapters and uses examples from real life stories. In his chapter on "Uncovering Hidden Symptoms" he lists many activities and organizations that are creating bad spiritual effects because of involvement in them. There is a list entitled "The Occult" that asks readers to "check if you have been involved, actively or passively, with any of the following: ....healing crystals....yoga....biofeedback.....and many other. There is another list for Freemasonry and "Societies connected to Freemasonry:".......Job's Daughters...DeMolay....Eastern Star.....and more. He provides prayers at the end of each list of repentance if you are the one involved or forgiveness if it is a family member whose involvement is effecting the family. It opened my eyes to yoga. I had never thought there was anything evil or wrong with yoga until I read this book and then researched it.
This book provides a lot of food for thought. It gave me a lot to ponder, and I will refer back to it many times. It is a book that would work well in a group study. There is a lot to think about and discuss with others in it. It would be good for a church library It has some wonderful ideas and guidance. However it has a few things that I did not quite agree with totally. The author has done a great job with his book. I would recommend it. I rated it a 4 out of 5 stars. I received a copy of this book from The Book Club Network in exchange for my honest review.

Reviewer: Janice S. Garey
***** 5 Stars
This book generates a wonderful feeling of--finally, a book I can share with my friends in the medical community who would discount the spiritual aspects of healing because they were not from a "scientific" source. Dr. Andrew Butterworth bridges a gap that too many have been afraid to cross.His book is straightforward, and his background in medicine gives him authority that few who are active in spiritual healing arenas have. He is an expert who can be trusted in the personal pursuits of healing. The subtitle of the book, A Balanced Approach to Medicine and God's Healing, describes perfectly what the book succeeds in doing. It's essence walks a tightrope to demonstrate there truly exists a spiritual realm to healing that can be tapped into for the best results.The book contains three sections: Understanding Sickness, Removing Blocks to Healing, and Pursuing Healing. I am currently reading near the end of section one, and have found the book so enlightening that I wanted to go ahead and post a review to let people in on the great value of this book for helping those who are sick and have not had much success in getting well solely based on medical treatments. This book has the potential to open eyes to what faith combined with medicine can do for them. This could even be life saving for some. Do not delay in reading and sharing this valuable gift from God made possible through Dr. Butterworth's willingness to go where others have been reluctant to go.
I thank the author, publisher, and bookfun.org for giving me this book in exchange for an honest review. This is a book that may be a priceless treasure for some who present it to sick family and friends as an escape hatch from a prison of infirmity to an abundant healthy life.
MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Healing HandbookApril 6, 2016MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5As the subtitle says: A Balanced Approach to Medicine and Gods Healing. I found this book practical and helpful. It may be revolutionary to some, but it is based on Scripture and full of true stories. The three sections cover Understanding Sickness, Removing Blocks to Healing, and Pursuing Healing. Each of the twelve chapters concludes with a brief summary of key points. He talks about the role forgiveness plays in healing as well as examples of how to pray. I recommend this sensible handbook. There were just a couple things I disagree with, but the processes and explanations are sound. I received this book from Book Fun Club in exchange for an honest review.
KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5For those sick but also for those who desire to stay healthyMarch 24, 2016KrisFairfax, VAAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5What a powerful, practical book for those sick and those who want to stay healthy! Dr. Butterworth is a pastor and doctor in South Africa and has seen much. In this book he brings together the relationship between unforgiveness and sickness. He gives practical steps to forgiving those in your life who have wronged you which might be gnawing away at you. One part of the book that really struck me was when he said that Forgiveness is not denying wrongdoing nor is it pretending the situation didnt happen. When you forgive, you cancel the debt that was owed, but that doesnt mean there wasnt a debt in the first place. I find that people often feel obligated to follow Gods example in remembering sins no more before true forgiveness happens, and this is a big hindrance to heart-level forgiveness. By forgiving, we absorb the debt, and we give up the right to demand justice or treat people badly, but we never deny that what they did was wrong or evil.
Dr. Butterworth also addresses the gift of healing and its role versus the role of doctors. In the New Testament, we see Jesus affirming the role of the medical profession when He suggested that those who are sick have need of a physician. While His main point was spiritual, for somebody who had an extensive healing ministry, He could have easily decried going to a doctor as a lack of faith-but He didnt.
Dr. Butterworth gives numerous instances of God doing do supernatural healing today. But he also says it isnt always on this side of heaven. Yes, we should pray for healing, but we cant say that because forgiveness from individual sins is fully complete on this side of heaven, our healing should also be fully complete as well. If it were, we should also expect the automatic removal of the other effects of living in a sin-infested world: decay from our body (no aging) and the automatic removal of death from our body (immortality). These results were all achieved through the cross but they have different time periods for us receiving them.
I thought this was an incredible book for those sick but also for those who desire to stay healthy! Dr. Butterworth addresses so many things that gave me greater insight to sickness, healing and life in general. I highly recommend this book. I received this book from bookfun.org in return for my honest opinion.
