Product Description

The beloved painting Christ Healing at the Well of Bethesda provides the inspiration of this exploration of the vital link between our faith and Christ's healing power. The authors use various scenes from the painting to symbolize our different spiritual challenges on the path to healing. Are we like the distracted bystanders, too busy to notice the healing touch of the Savior? Or are we like the man in the red cap, waiting for a miracle but not ready to turn our pain over to the Master Healer? Perhaps we are among the crowd behind the pillar, separated by a barrier that stands between us and the Source of salvation. But whatever our need and circumstance, true healing requires spiritual preparation. Learn how the healing hand of the Master touches each of us in a personalized way and discover the healing agents you can apply in your own life.

The book centers around the painting of "Christ Healing at the Well of Bethesda" by Carl Bloch and making interpretations from it. Sometimes they have to stretch to find something to say about each character in the painting and how it applies to healing. The most interesting part of the book is the forward and how BYU ended up getting the painting.

Powerful Spiritual Book

Reviewed by Marilee McQuarrie , 'The Healer's Art Faith and the Healing Power of Jesus Christ' is based on the painting Christ Healing at the Well of Bethesda by Carl Bloch. The painting resides at the Brigham Young University Museum of Art and is owned by BYU. The book is the authors' interpretations of the painting and gives in-depth thoughts, ideas, questions and answers into the people who are depicted in the painting. , The authors discuss the crowd in the background, the man in the red hat, the women going for water and the healing of the Savior. The book provides insight into the emotions and feelings of the people at the well and how they relate to us today. , I was particularly impressed with the description of the woman who is going for water with her child and her mother. She is providing for her family and protecting the child at the same time and how the child feels comforted by her mother's touch. The comparison is that we feel the Savior's love and healing power from His closeness and His touch when we accept Him into our lives and let Him heal us from our suffering. , This book is small but it is full of wisdom and can bring us closer to the Savior when we let Him be a part of the healing process..
