What is the power that Jesus calls to awaken in us? What does it mean to be healthy and whole? How can we open ourselves so that the healing power can heal what is sick? How can we awaken this power in ourselves?

Wilt thou be made whole? is the question Jesus addressed to the paralyzed man who had waited in vain for years at the Pool of Bethesda. Not really answering, he replies that he has no one to carry him down when the angel stirs the waters. Take up your bed and walk, Jesus tells him, and the man was made whole and walked.

What passed between them? What communion or communication took place in the interval between the paralyzed mans excuse and Jesus injunction? What did the man receive through Jesus words? Georg Khlewind shows how meditation can bring us closer to that event.

Beginning with a meditation-based account of the embodied psycho-spiritual human being, Khlewind describes the preconditions and possibilities of healing in the Gospels. He goes on to discuss in depth and detail, through meditations, Christs various psychological and physical healings.

The unique quality of this book is that Khlewind utilizes the healings in the Gospels as themes for meditationspiritual exercises that can bring us to a more intimate understanding of Christs healing power. In this way, Khlewind shows us how to approach a deeper understanding of the healing process itself and begin to heal ourselves. In the process, we come to understand the Gospels and ourselves in a new way.
