Through deeply engaging the Word, writes Bishop Basil of AmphipolIs, we find oneness, or at-one-ment, with God, fellow believers and ourselves. And this oneness brings healing - a sense that the scatteredness of life has been overcome and that we have found our proper place in God's world.

This stirring book by Bishop Basil walks us through the intimate experience of meeting Christ in our daily lives to the thrilling realisation of our significance in a cosmos created entirely for the purpose of bringing us into relationship with him. It draws deeply on scripture, Orthodox liturgies and insights of the early Church Fathers, speaking with clarity and relevance to the world we live in today and the divisions that exist both within the Church and in its relationships with ecology, philosophy and science.

Bishop Basil, of Amphipolis

'Profound and authoritative. It is wonderful to have a book like this from a learned, imaginative and prayerful mind, a book which so enlarges our horizons and intensifies our gratitude and delight in the new creation.' -- Rowan Williams 'The Orthodox Church does not simply read Scripture. It encourages us to see, hear, touch, inhale and taste the Word of God. In The Healing Word, Bishop Basil of Amphipolis inspires us to renew and refine our spiritual senses by discerning the deepest roots of biblical truth and theological thought as well as by reaching the deepest recesses of our heart and mind. He encourages us to seek wholeness and holiness by confessing differences and divisions in our personal lives, in the Church, and in creation. This book invites us to encounter the living God as a healing presence in our world.' -- His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew
