Healed at Last
June 9, 2014
Meningitis at the age of three left Scott Blackwell with a legacy of serious lifelong health problems, including the severe limp he still walks with. But his physical ailments were only the half of it. By his own admission, he found himself at the age of 18 "tired, starving, sick, experimenting widely with any drug I could find, mildly suicidal and alone".
This book tells how God brought profound healing into Scott Blackwell’s life. But it is also the story of Scott’s search for what the Bible teaches about physical healing, in this life and the next. Many Christian pastors make strong claims today about God's promise to heal all our physical illnesses. What are we to make of these claims? What does the Bible actually teach about healing?
Scott's examination of these important issues is personal, warm, practical and often funny. But it is also clear, thorough and compelling in its presentation of the Bible's teaching about healing.
Healed at Last offers truth, hope and encouragement for everyone who longs to be healed.
