Being a doctor and going to the doctor are theological issues. A major thesis of the book is that a “de-medicalization” of physicians is necessary and should be replaced by a “Scripto-centric” approach to life in the practice of medicine. This call is radical, humanly speaking, but we have a God Who has given much to us as Christian physicians and expects much of us. There is a biblical view of the practice of medicine, and it is the major avenue that patients have for reaching true comfort and help. Each physician must be able to articulate it and the book is written for that purpose. A rightly understood biblical view of medicine is the only way that doctors have for giving genuine hope to hurting people and for the advancement of God’s kingdom.
