You can be very well physically, but in absolute agony because of a broken heart or an imprisoned soul. Jesus promises us he will bind up our broken hearts, set us free, and heal us from the inside out.

Oct 27. review of the main themes of the book – how do we understand our take on these supposed conflicts between Science and Christianity? What resources do we have to talk to those who struggle?
