This completely revised new edition not only interweaves updates and refinements throughout but also adds two entirely new chapters, on Jonah, Job, and Daniel; and on the Psalms. 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. Miller, Professor of Biblical and Religious Studies, Tabor College, observes that "Grimsrud has written an excellent introduction to the Bible from an Anabaptist/liberationist perspective. The studied breadth and depth of the book make it ideal as an introductory high school or college text or for use in adult Christian education."
