Healing Wounded History
Full Product Description
This is the authors second published work on healing, following Forgiveness is Healing (Sept. 2011).
Healing Wounded History, as the cover suggests, is about reconciling peoples and healing places. The focus is on community healing rather than healing the individual. Practical ways of praying strategically are explained, as well as the ways in which we might respond to different situations where we find brokenness.
This book is groundbreaking in its ideas, consistent in its theology, and gentle in its approach. Worth reading.
Healing Wounded History by Russ Parker was published by SPCK in January 2012 and is our 24335th best seller. The ISBN for Healing Wounded History is 9780281066254.

Healing Wounded HistoryBarry Vendy, via The Good Book Stall
Originally published in 2001 by Darton, Longman and Todd Ltd. Books by the long-standing Director of the Acorn Christian Healing Foundation are always worth reading. This re-issued title is no exception. As usual, Russ Parker stretches our understanding of the meaning of healing. He writes that over more than twenty-five years of praying with people and seeking help for himself, he has learnt that ‘the profile of healing is more complex than I had at first thought’. The healing agenda may begin with an individual’s request for prayer, but we soon have to engage with the context of our lives. That context takes the form of a ‘collection of group stories’, with all their memories and emotions, blessings and wounds.
Parker explores the stories of several human groups: The Family Group, starting with 3 generations in the biblical story of Abraham’s family; The Church Group, starting with the 2nd and 3rd chapters of Revelation (and including a fascinating chapter on ‘The Christian Day of Atonement’; The Community Group, particularly the city and The Tribal or Nation Group.
Reconciliation and the healing of group stories and wounds is the book’s theme. Parker has much to say about ‘representational confession’ and the way in which Jesus is the representational confessor.
He frequently refers to the workbook that is the essential companion to this volume as your use of Healing Wounded History will be incomplete without it. You can order the workbook on The Acorn Christian Healing Foundation website http://www.acornchristian.org via the bookshop. It is on sale for £2.95 at the moment, Feb 2012.
