As Jesus Cared for Women: Restoring Women Then and Now

Front Cover
F.H. Revell, 1998 - Religion - 187 pages
During his life on earth, Jesus consistently ignored tradition and social correctness in order to minister to women in their physical, emotional, and spiritual brokenness. In this intriguing book, a nationally known OB/GYN relates biblical accounts of Christ healing women with case studies from his own practice, concluding that Jesus longs to bring the same wholeness to today's women.

Even though these healings took place long ago, the infirmities healed by Jesus are the same ones that plague the souls and bodies of people today. Dr. Hager points out that physical healing is only the beginning of wholeness. Whether it was the woman with the blood disorder who touched Jesus' robe or it is a modern woman with chronic fatigue syndrome, Christ always deals with a person's emotional and spiritual problems as well. Women will be affirmed in Christ's endless care for their needs as they discover the redemption and restoration he offers their bodies, souls, and minds.
