In this excellent and accessible book, the author tackles the difficult subject of those who do not get better. Exploring our language, Atkinson suggests that a more helpful word could be that of 'wholeness' and also the context of healing being 'what do you really need?' He argues that the need for healing is an invitation to work with God in a broken world towards the final goal of perfection. He also believes that sometimes God may act in a way that we cannot understand. This challenging title will be an essential resource for ministers as well as those seeking a response to the mystery of healing.
