AuthorHouse, Apr 29, 2011 - Body, Mind & Spirit - 136 pages

Have you ever experienced difficulty initiating an encounter with someone who was physically challenged, chronically or terminally ill? Have you ever wished that you could immediately locate the appropriate scripture that would minister to their needs during these circumstances? Perhaps you may have desired to share a relevant testimony that would provide a measure of hope and edification during a visit with a person who was ill. Lets Talk About Your Health: A Biblically Based Approach has been written with these scenarios in mind. It is divided into eight chapters, with each highlighting a particular physical health area with supporting scripture.

This third book by Dr. Hodges and Dr. Betton in the area of spirituality and medicine provides new resources that have not been included; in the two previous books. The authors have included an Index which is particularly helpful in locating scriptures consistent with the chapter and subject discussed. There is ample space, as part of the Index, for the reader to list other scriptures that might also be useful in ministering to one experiencing an illness. While this book provides a cogent conversation about health, it also has the potential to catapult the reader into a rewarding awareness of his or her health priorities as viewed through the compelling voice of Gods Word.
