Published:  January 2005


For those who are in daily contact with people who are ill or in need, there may be a tendency to forget the larger purpose of healing because of a need to focus on the day-to-day mechanics of healthcare. Anthroposophic medicine, however, encompasses more than the physical body; it is also concerned with the soul and individual biography of patients, which brings a broader dimension to conventional medical care.

Peter Selg shows how anthroposophic therapies draw heavily on the Christian concept of healing as seen in the Christian Bible. In practical terms, he suggests that, through meditation, healers and caregivers can allow the healing power of Christ to work through them. They must come to recognize that sickness is part of a person’s destiny and that the healing process can help realize the purpose of the sickness for the person’s individual life story.

Nurses, caregivers, social workers, therapists, counselors, and doctors can all benefit from this insightful book.

This book is a translation from German of Krankheit und Christus-Erkenntnis. Anthroposophische Medizin als christliche Heilkunst (Verlag am Goetheanum, 2001).
