Format: Perfect Paperback
The healing nature of Christ is a central principle of the faith. "The Healing Christ" discusses Christ's healing power and the nature that connects this and its metaphysical nature. Drawing on the many stories of his healing, Robert Winterhalter states that through these stories, one can learn that healing isn't for Christ alone, that we all have this power as well. "The Healing Christ" is a thoughtful read for Christian and metaphysical readers.

Format: Perfect Paperback
Having known Robert Winterhalter as a scholar, it is fascinating to encounter such a powerful reminder that he was also interested in healing, serving as he did as a minister in various environments. As a New Thought Christian, he reminds us that "we regard [Jesus of Nazareth] as the founder of our science and its greatest practitioner", and that Jesus told us, "He who believes in me will also do the works that I do, and greater works than these will he do" (John 14:12). Robert's book is a scholarly and painstaking account of the Scriptural basis for the patterns of healing employed by Jesus.

Robert goes through each of the 22 healings performed by Jesus as described in the Gospels, commenting on them from a scholarly viewpoint. He especially treats the nuances of translation from Greek or Aramaic, supplying the reader with insights that go beyond the simple translations. Use of verb tenses makes an enormous difference, and Robert brings out those differences. Robert also deals with Hebrew and Hellenistic cultures, showing what they bring to bear on the various healing incidents. He includes so-called "metaphysical" (symbolic) insights into the accounts.

All illness is psychosomatic, having both psyche and soma components, and we can now say that nearly all illness (some 90 percent or more) is psychogenic, its cause being in the mind or spirit. Perhaps Robert's most useful contribution is his psychological insights into how and why people become ill, and what it takes for them to become well and stay that way. He shows that Jesus was aware of most if not all of these: "Jesus understood, with complete clarity, that the springs of life are from within.

The Healing Christ
by Robert Winterhalter

This 152 page read was a treat to review because it took the accounts of Jesus healing and taught me how to heal myself and others. I felt very comfortable in the way the material was presented, sincere and easy to follow. The author lovingly took a well known account of Christ's healings and then disassemble it in such a way that I could get the key spiritual principles such as faith, trust and action and apply them to my life.

The New Age is definitely upon us and the marriage of Christ's miracles with metaphysical explanations for the events is right on time. I loved the correlation between the two and I feel that this blessed wonder will go a long way in helping us all to find our way home, right here on earth. I would recommend this incredible read to anyone wanting to know how it was done and how they can do it themselves. Thanks Robert, I admire you for your ability to bridge the gap.

Love & Light,

Riki Frahmann
