For many of us, healing is needed only when we are sick, and is offered by an elite of specially trained experts to weak or vulnerable people who are in need of their help.
In this book, the author challenges these and many other myths and misconceptions about healing and the healing ministries. Using an original and compelling mix of wordsand images, theology and personal experience, story-telling and Biblical reflection, he describes a very different understanding of healing, placing it at the centre of our lives and of the communities in which we live. He shows that healing is a shared journey in which the healer is often the one who is in need, and the one who is sick is the one ministering to the healer.
