Sarah Yoder hasn't seen Henry Byler since he became engaged to an Englisch woman, which is best for her peace of mind. Since Henry never joined the Amish church, any relationship but a neighborly one is impossible. So she stays busy with her family, welcoming her son back from the ranch he's been working on in Colorado, doing a little matchmaking for her sister-in-law, and making the teas and tinctures that heal the members of her church. Then Henry seeks her out, desperate for a balm for his sensitive hands before his success as a potter is jeopardized, and Sarah must call on every ounce of strength to deny the cry of her heart. Yet there is Someone who just might have a special cure in mind-a healing balm with the power to change everything. But with Henry's wedding only weeks away, is it already too late?

Do you believe thoughts and pictures can be inspired by God? If so, you will appreciate along with me that this is exactly what occurred in these stories. Why should this have to be and for what purpose? A good question! Let us give a particular scenario. If you saw a little child crying after falling down, or the expression of pain written across the face of an old lady struggling with arthritis in her legs whilst carrying shopping, would you feel anything within yourself and wish you could help somehow? There would probably be two types of responses to these situations. One person might feel the situation required help, but would simply walk on by thinking, Oh what a shame! Another person, perhaps herself a mother of a child of similar age, would rush with immediate concern to help as if identifying herself personally with the child's need and pain and feeling it all the more because she has a child herself! Further, the struggling old lady would also be treated with practical passion and offered help in some way. Both people saw and felt the pain exhibited before them, but only the second was prepared to act outside the box without any sense of inconvenience, reserve or embarrassment. Well, I believe God is like the second person. Remember the story Jesus told of The Good Samaritan? God has compassion*. It is part of His agape love towards each one, and this is all included in that Golden Rule: do to others as you would have them do to you! There exists much pain and suffering in the world today. Each one of the stories in this book will take the reader into observing some of the needs of others. The reader must imagine for themselves what God might say or do to remedy these needs. This is what I mean by having inspired thoughts and pictures. God seeks to choose people who will see as he sees, feel as He feels and act upon situations just as He would. If I say I love God, then I must learn to love what He loves - PEOPLE! *Jesus

Daniel P. Sulmasy MD, PhD, OFM

Once rarely discussed in medical circles, the relationship between spirituality and health has become an important topic in health care. This change is evidenced in courses on religion and medicine taught in most medical schools, articles in journals such as the New England Journal of Medicine, and conferences being held all over the country. Yet, much of the discussion of the role of religion and spirituality in health care keeps the critical distance of only being about spirituality. A Balm for Gilead goes further, offering a work of spirituality. Sulmasy moves between the poetic and the speculative, addressing his subject in the tradition of great spiritual writers like Augustine and Bonaventure. He draws from philosophical and theological sources—specifically, Hebrew and Christian scripture—to illuminate how the art of healing is integrally tied to a sense of the divine and our ultimate interconnectedness. Health care professionals—and anyone else involved with the care of the sick and dying—will find this series of meditations both inspiring and instructive. Sulmasy addresses the spiritual malaise that physicians, nurses, and other health care workers experience in their professional lives, and explores how these Christian healers can be inspired to persevere in the care of the sick. Drawing on the parable of the prodigal son, for instance, Sulmasy illustrates how some physicians have put financial gain ahead of their patients, and how genuine spirituality might change their hearts. He examines both enigmatic topics such as the relationship between sinfulness, sickness, and suffering and the spirituality of more routine topics such as preventive medicine. In one especially stirring and poignant meditation, he reflects on the spirituality of dying in the light of Christian hope. A Balm for Gilead interweaves prayer and reflection, pointing the way to a twenty-first-century spirituality for health care professionals and their patients.

This book is a celebration of Christian faith. It celebrates life with love, joy, peace, happiness and kindness. It also speaks to our experiences with challenges, disappointments, troubles, and physical pain and heartbreak. My themes of God, Christ, love, mercy and grace are expressions of the goodness of God; how he operates in the lives of those who trust him to move on their behalf. God's unconditional love expressed so eloquently on the Cross of Calvary speaks to his forgiveness and salvation. He is the balm we want, he is the healer we need, making us whole beings, encouraging us and giving hope to those with dreams of a future.

Beach Conger

When young Dr. Beach Conger accepted a hospital appointment in rural Vermont, it was a mail-order marriage without either party seeing the other. He envisioned living out the rest of his days splitting wood, healing the sick, and being adored as a kindly country doctor. His new patients figured they had their work cut out for them, breaking in this whippersnapper M.D. from Berkeley, California. Beach Conger's tale of his training in the art of country doctoring is a joy. Listen in on the hilarious consultations as he finds a cure for vitaminia, induces laconic Vermonters to talk about "private" problems, and even reconstructs the formula for the "Green Pills" his predecessor invented. He especially brings home that most basic consideration -- the need for every doctor to be supervised by a responsible person, i.e., a nurse. "An engaging blend of rustic wisdom and big-city know-how." -- Publishers Weekly

John Flavel

The repeated editions of Flavel's Works bear their own witness to his popularity. He was a favourite with Jonathan Edwards and George Whitefield (who ranked him with John Bunyan and Matthew Henry), and, a century later, with such Scottish evangelical leaders as R. M. M'Cheyne and Andrew Bonar. Flavel's complete works had long been unobtainable until we reprinted them in 1968. His six volumes are in themselves a library of the best Puritan divinity and a set will be a life-long treasure to those who possess it. He is one of that small number of evangelical writers who can by their lucidity and simplicity help those at the beginning of the Christian life and at the same time be a strong companion to those who near its end.
