Discover Healing and Freedom
Knowing and living the truth that sets you free
by Peter Horrobin
To live a full, healthy Christian life you will need healing along the way. Healing from injustices, against abuse, self-hatred, entrenched personal sin, broken relationships, rejection, destroyed trust, lost dreams, depression, loneliness. Sin and wounds can often be tied to even physical pains. The list of things that hurt us along life’s way can have a profound effect on our body and on our personality, decision making, and on our relationship with God and others. This is why Jesus came to heal the broken-hearted. His healing radically changes lives, and still does, today!
In ten profound chapters, Peter Horrobin unpacks the Christian healing ministry for us all. In ways that anyone can understand, he explains how getting the foundations right changes everything. And how when we apply the principles in God’s Word, and follow the teaching of Jesus, every single one of us can take huge steps forward in our personal journey of healing. You don’t need to be a theologian to either understand it or receive God’s healing for yourself. An excellent resource for local churches. Ideal for small group use.
