About this title


Healings and miracles play a prominent role in the New Testament accounts of Jesus’ life and ministry. In the Western Christian tradition, however, Jesus’ works of healing tend to be downplayed and understood as little more than a demonstration of his divine power.

In this book Jan-Olav Henriksen and Karl Olav Sandnes draw on both contemporary systematic theology and New Testament scholarship to challenge and investigate the reasons for that oversight. They constructively consider what it can mean for Christian theology today to understand Jesus as a healer, to embrace fully the embodied character of the Christian faith, and to recognize the many ways in which God can still be seen to have a healing presence in the world.

Jan-Olav Henriksen is professor of systematic theology and philosophy of religion at Norwegian School of Theology, Oslo, Norway. Among his other books are Life, Love, and Hope: God and Human Experience and Desire, Gift, and Recognition: Christology and Postmodern Philosophy.
