Cooperating with the Holy Spirit in Healing Ministry
Author: Brad Long
Publisher: Baker Books
Most people get hurt and suffer painful memories as a result of living in an imperfect world. But God's original plan for humanity included spiritual, emotional, physical, and relational wholeness. Through the example of Jesus, who heals from the inside out, readers will learn how to experience this wholeness and assist in the healing of others. Let Jesus Heal Your Hidden Wounds speaks to the individual who wants to be or already is involved in healing ministry. This is not another technique for doing healing, but a description of how the prayer minister cooperates with the Holy Spirit to bring healing and deliverance to people with hidden wounds. Each chapter includes several questions for use in a Bible study setting or to provoke further personal reflection. Those called to healing ministries will be taken to a new level of understanding and greater effectiveness from reading and studying this book. And those with hidden wounds will find new hope for restoration and freedom.
This revised edition of The Collected Works of St. John of the Cross was produced to mark the fourth centenary of the death of St. John of the Cross (1542–1591). The result is an English translation of his writings that preserves the authentic meaning of the great mystic’s writings, presents them as clearly as possible, and at the same time gives the reader the doctrinal and historical information that will lead to a deeper understanding and appreciation of the teachings of the Mystical Doctor. Included in The Collected Works are St. John’s poetry, The Ascent of Mount Carmel, The Dark Night, The Spiritual Canticle, and The Living Flame of Love, as well as his extant letters and other counsels. More Information: Complementing St. John’s writings are a comprehensive General Introduction for the entire work, as well as brief, enlightening introductions for each specific work, explaining theme and structure. These are enhanced by new and expanded footnotes and a glossary of terms. About the Translators Kieran Kavanaugh, O.C.D.

Jackie Osinski takes us on her own personal struggle, heartaches and devastations of dealing with depression. The book opens as Jackie is a seven-year-old child trying to deal with an abusive home life. She candidly points out the harrowing feelings of being a small child, wanting to plunge a knife through her chest. She continues the journey with the successive years of depression and her many attempts at suicide. She feebly attempts to find some sort of healing and resolve. As the book progresses, we find a young woman haunted by the demonic forces of depression. It is only several years later when the Word of God is revealed to her in a dynamic new way, that she is able to find complete and total freedom. The reader is given tools to be set free from depression and help others find the same hope, peace and freedom. Jackie Osinski is an author, conference speaker and evangelist. As a former pastor, she has counseled many who have suffered from depression and suicide. Her passion is to see the oppressed set free.

At one time or another, each of us must deal with the inner wounds left in the wake of life's changes, transitions, and losses. These challenging experiences affect every part of who we are: body, mind, and spirit. In Healing the Wounds of Change, Dr. Brady Reinsmith provides a practical guide to helping us understand and heal our wounds of change. She shares meaningful insights and suggestions that can help us move confidently forward, toward personal and spiritual renewal, and toward a more satisfying life. She suggests that we begin with a deeper understanding of the significance of change, of its many "faces." She then focuses on dealing with the stress of change, on the relational nature of change, the fears and anxieties it generates, and its opportunities for holistic renewal. Healing the Wounds of Change presents an inclusive approach to personal and spiritual renewal. It includes relevant information from the disciplines of psychology, philosophy, neuroscience, theology, and spirituality, and suggests ways that we can generate inner peace and joy for ourselves and for others.
A poor self-image. Chronic depression. A bitter divorce. The trauma of sexual abuse. Why do some wounds fester and refuse to heal, even after we seek help from those who specialize in treating deep emotional pain? Kraft believes that in order to experience real and lasting freedom from a painful past, we must understand the powerful link between spiritual warfare and inner healing.

Deep Wounds, Deep Healing is a complete guide to deep-level healing. Whether readers are seeking restoration for themselves or for those under their care, this book will enable them to recognize the spiritual roots of emotional wounds and invite God's presence into those darkest of places. His power is the hope of freedom and inner healing.
People are really hurting today -- not just physically, but mentally, emotionally, spiritually, and in their relationships. All of us need healing. Maybe we have an addiction we're trying to break. Maybe there's no happiness or love in our lives. Maybe the hurt is from being lonely, even in the midst of family, job, or social gatherings. And when we need healing, we often hurt those around us. We strike out at the environment until it, too, is hurting. The angels, our unseen companions and guardians, can help us heal. In fact, from New York to California, angels are doing just that. People are telling stories of being healed of everything from serious illness to addictions to bad relationships, simply by calling on angels for their help. "Angelic Healing" will reveal the lessons of history, while offering stories of angelic healing today -- moving tales of people for whom being touched by angels has meant major healing in their lives and the lives of those around them. "Angelic Healing" also shows you how to tap into your angelic resources to bring about healing in your own life and empower you to be all you were meant to be. Bri
