Crazy and in Charge: The Autobiography of Abe Hirschfeld
Jesus had a special place in His heart for those who were sick, disfigured by disease, or threatened by death. God's compassion for all His children is revealed in the human touch of Jesus Christ. Jesus touched many both physically and spiritually, breaking through the diseases that made them outcasts from society.
Scripture tells of many acts of healing done by Jesus. Scripture also tells of the disciples in ministry to the sick. A pattern and guide has been laid out in Scripture for Christians to follow. Ministry to the Sick and Dying leads the reader through the Biblical basis for this ministry.
Ministry to the Sick and Dying also gives practical tips for those ministering spiritually to the sick. Readers will learn how to plan a hospital visit that will include a spiritual assessment and pointers on how to talk to the patient.
Ministry to the Sick and Dying is a valuable tool for pastors, elders, deacons, Sunday school teachers and laity involved in this ministry. Information is given on diseases, such as AIDS/HIV and Cancer. The book also has a wealth of information on end-of-life issues and final decisions.
