Dust and Breath

Kendra G Hotz, Matthew T Mathews, Gary Guderson

Paperback 2012-09-10

Publisher Description

In 1987 Dr. G. Scott Morris opened a medical clinic, the Church Health Center, in a poor urban neighborhood in Memphis, Tennessee. What began as a clinic for the working uninsured has grown into a nationally recognized comprehensive faith and healthcare organization that serves as a model for delivering high-quality care to underserved populations. Dust and Breath articulates the theological significance of the Church Health Center and other church ministries that offer medical care and health education within impoverished urban communities. Replete with real-life stories and practical examples, Dust and Breath shows how such ministries can help to restore wholeness in our communities in remarkable ways. While many Christians separate the physical from the spiritual, Kendra Hotz and Matthew Mathews explain how salvation embraces the whole person and how social amelioration provides contexts in which people can discover the all-encompassing grace of God.
