Book Review: Healing is a Choice

Healing is a Choice. Stephen Arterburn. Nashville: Thomas Nelson, Inc. 2011 454 pp

In his newly revised and updated book, Healing is a Choice,” Christian Minister Stephen Arterburn states, as the purpose of this book that he is going to:
“Use ten choices to help you pull out of the rut where you are living a life much different from the life God has called you to live.”

He’s succeeded brilliantly.
When most people think of healing, they think of physical healing. But there are many other types of healings—such as spiritual, emotional, and mental—that block us from our enjoying our lives to the fullest. Healing is a choice, Arterburn says, and it is a choice that each of us must make before we receive healing from any of our various afflictions.

Arterburn goes on to list 10 of these choices that we must make. I was enthralled with this book. This updated edition of Healing is a Choice includes a workbook that helps you to analyze the one or more choices that you have heretofore refused to make to be healed.
This book is an easy read and well written. Arterburn clearly knows that he’s talking about in this book. But he is also a Christian minister with a following…and his own radio show.

When I chose this book to review, I did not expect to be so pleasantly surprised. I am a Christian, but I consider myself to be more of a New Age Christian. Although I knew many of the biblical stories Arterburn related, it had been a long time since I had been confronted with traditional Christianity.
I guess I was a bit surprised by this, but not offended.

Anyway, I would highly recommend this book to anyone who wants to be healed from anything.
