"Mary Nelson is an artist with her words. She takes you into one Bible scene after another. You understand the setting and you feel the emotions, the hurt, the need. And then your eyes are drawn to The Healer who gives each person just what they need. Mary continues with other scenes, other stories: Ryans, Dianes, Sandys. Todays people with the same needs and hurts. And the same Healer touches each one of them. Be comforted, be amazed, be inspired. Marys book will restore your hope and faith in Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals."

"There are those who are considered knowledgeable because theyve studied. Then there are those whose expertise is born out of experience. Finally, there are those who possess that rare authority which comes from both fire-tested personal experience and the passionate pursuit of truth. Pastor Mary Nelson possesses this authoritative voice when it comes to the topic of healing. As a good theologian, in Jehovah-Rapha: The God Who Heals she stretches us beyond the previous limits of our understanding and comfortto a place where only faith will do. As a good pastor, she doesnt pretend to have easy or trite answers to some of lifes most difficult questions. Instead, Pastor Mary Nelson points us to Jesus as the true source of comfort and healing."
Ryan Alexander, Lead Pastor of Hosanna! Church, Lakeville, MN
"In her new book Mary Nelson boldly proclaims through well-known historical, biblical stories and her personal eye-witness accounts that, We live in an open universe where God, the all powerful Spirit, is interacting with all of His creation; healing and restoring all things in His goodness! Thank you, Mary, for so skillfully and personally reimagining for us the possibilities in Jehovah-Rapha: The God Who Heals."
Tim Hatt, Kingdom Expansion Pastor of Hosanna! Church, Lakeville, MN
This thorough and balanced study will be especially helpful to those struggling with questions about whether God does or doesnt heal today. Also recommend to Christians (and even non- Christians) facing physical problems, although the formal religious language may make it less accessible for the unchurched.
