If illness was produced by God, then healing could only come directly from God, without the intervention of physicians and, many times only through the priest. Many ancient theologians felt that physicians acted against God's will in trying to aid in healing. in fact one writer in the Talmud says, in effect, that the best of physicians destined to go to hell, and the medical profession was counted among the seven professions who would not share in heaven. In spite of a rather low assessment of doctors, the ancient Jews were a healthy lot in large part due to dietary and sanitation laws. Contrast this with New Testament teaching. Indeed, Luke was the beloved physician and the writer of one of the Gospels. Jesus said, "It is not those who are healthy who need a physician, but those who are sick." In this book, we explore biblical teachings about medicine in both the Old and New Testaments. Also, we will study dietary and health laws that have bearing on today's life and lifestyle.
Servant leadership is the most effective type of leadership in today’s world. But what does it mean to be a servant leader? And how do you do it? You may not know how to practice this type of leading, but do you recognize it when you see it? Though many people are attracted to the concept of being a servant leader in their homes, workplaces and community, they don’t know where to begin. Old habits are hard to break.
In their second collaboration, Dr. David Stevens and Bert Jones use pithy and succinct proverbs to teach you how to become the servant leader you desire to be. And as you apply these principles, you will become the servant leader God designed you to be, to influence generations of servant leaders to come.

Here's the story of this picture as Gary tells it himself--"The Gift has its origins in Proverbs 24:11 'If you see the innocent being dragged to death, you had better do something' (paraphrase mine). My response was, 'OK, God, but you need to show me what to do.' His response came through a mentor, who suggested that I do a painting of the hands of God holding a baby inside the womb. I obtained permission to use the baby image from Lennart Nilsson's agent. He is a fantastic photographer who has taken many, many pictures from conception through birth. They are pieces of art in themselves. The copyright granted me permission to use the image for the original painting, as well as prints." Image size is about 16" x 20". Signed and numbered.
