Suffering in 3-D: Connecting the Church to Disease, Disability, and Disorder is a book to guide and encourage ordinary believers to get practically involved in meaningful relational ministry to all who are suffering.
As Christians, we are not to walk alone in our suffering, or inadvertently force others to deal with personal suffering on their own. The church, as a spiritual hospital, the family of God, and a discipleship culture, is to be one-minded and spiritually passionate about its charge to connect to those who suffer in the midst. It is called to properly deal with the many obstacles to right grace-based relationships with all those who suffer—and ultimately, not just tolerating or enduring sufferers in its midst, but welcoming, pursuing, and embracing them as full members of the body of Christ.
As you work through this book, you will be guided and inspired to engage in a holistic and practical ministry to those who suffer with disease, disability, and disorder.
