The Great Physician
A Life of Jesus Christ in the Light of Modern Spiritual Healing - Volume 1
Vinton A. Dearing
THE GREAT PHYSICIAN is a biography of Jesus of Nazareth. It includes both an original translation of the Gospel texts and extensive commentary based on 40 years of scholarship and over 80 years of life experience with spiritual healing.
Because of printing constraints, it is printed in two volumes which are intended to be read together. Volume 1 includes the narrative; Volume 2 includes footnotes and indexes. Since Volume 1 is written in chronological order rather than by Gospel, most readers will require the Index of Translations in Volume 2 to find specific Gospel chapters and verses.
Students of the Bible and anyone interested in spiritual healing will especially appreciate the well annotated and comprehensive background information about social and religious thought during Christ Jesus' time as well as modern day examples of spiritual healing based on Christ Jesus' teachings.
As a scholar and with great respect for those who hold to different religious traditions, Professor Dearing strove for accuracy and clarity in representing opposing viewpoints. He endeavored to write a book that is both unbiased and ecumenical so that readers can make their own judgments.
