Inspiration for churches seeking to develop whole-person ministries
Dust and Breath invites the Christian community into an expansive vision of salvation that includes ministries of health and healing. Inspired by the work of a remarkable ministry in Memphis, Tennessee, Kendra Hotz and Matthew Mathews show why the church must care about both faith and health.
In 1987 Dr. G. Scott Morris opened a medical clinic called the Church Health Center in a poor Memphis neighborhood. What began as a clinic for the working uninsured has grown into a nationally recognized faith-based healthcare organization. In this book Hotz and Mathews articulate the theological significance of the Church Health Center and other church ministries like it. Replete with real-life stories and practical examples, Dust and Breath shows how such ministries can help give hope and restore wholeness to communities in amazing ways.
