One of the riskiest messages of To Be Made Well is that healing is available for everyone. Every single person. In every body and every place of distress and disease and every impossible situation and every oppressive system. I love the way David Swanson puts it here, that Jesus can make us whole and well.
In an age marked by division, detachment, and dis-ease at every level, from the intimately personal to our society at large, Amy Julia has a word of hope: Jesus can make us whole and well. What that holistic healing looks like and how we can participate in it is the creative gift offered in these pages.

The “division, detachment, and dis-ease” David writes about can be replaced with connection, engagement, and health.
Healing is not easy or formulaic. Healing almost certainly will take time. Healing will almost certainly feel disruptive. Healing will often not come in the ways we expect and not look like what we imagined. But healing is for each of us and for all of us.
Thank you, David, for your words of endorsement for To Be Made Well!
