Books Info:

In the Name of Jesus! free pdf "In the Name of Jesus". In an age of global threats to human health -- including, most devastatingly, HIV and AIDS -- it is time for Christians to ask: What is the role of faith and healing? This volume, forged in Africans' experience with HIV, searches for a new and positive Christian perspective on healing, rooted in biblical traditions yet informed by contemporary medicine and pastoral care. Tensions created by faith healing practices, the spread of anti-retroviral therapy, the healing traditions of African Indigenous Religions, the advent of a new generation facing HIV, and the variety of Christian approaches to sickness and health-all come into consideration here as theologians, pastors, historians of religion and others address the most existentially pressing issue of the church in Africa. An invaluable guide to the situation and possibilities in African Christians' battle against HIV, 'In the Name of Jesus!' is also a profound encounter with the wellsprings of Christian relevance to the human future.
