Description: Healing by Jesus and the apostles is not a popular subject for biblical studies today but the importance of healing in the firstcentury eastern Roman Empire was enormous. In the New Testament writings of Mark, Luke and Paul we find considerable variation in their use of divine healing. In this book Audrey Dawson combines detailed biblical study with her insights from her medical practice.
