Healing Ourselves: The First Task Of The Church In America

Elmer T. Clark

""Healing Ourselves: The First Task Of The Church In America"" is a book written by Elmer T. Clark that explores the role of the church in healing the spiritual and social wounds of the American society. The author argues that the church has a responsibility to address the root causes of the problems that afflict the nation, such as racism, poverty, and inequality, and to offer a message of hope and transformation to those who are struggling. The book is divided into three parts. In the first part, Clark examines the nature of the crisis facing the American church and the urgent need for healing. He argues that the church must be willing to confront the social and political realities of the country and to engage in a prophetic ministry that challenges the status quo.In the second part of the book, Clark explores the biblical and theological foundations of healing and transformation. He argues that the church must embrace a holistic vision of healing that addresses the needs of the whole person, including the physical, emotional, and spiritual dimensions.In the final part of the book, Clark offers practical suggestions for how the church can engage in the work of healing and transformation. He suggests that the church must be willing to listen to the voices of those who are marginalized and oppressed, and to work in partnership with other organizations and communities to bring about social change.Overall, ""Healing Ourselves: The First Task Of The Church In America"" is a challenging and thought-provoking book that offers a compelling vision for the role of the church in addressing the pressing social and spiritual issues of our time. It is a must-read for anyone who is concerned about the future of the church and the well-being of our society.This scarce antiquarian book is a facsimile reprint of the old original and may contain some imperfections such as library marks and notations.
