Preaching can encourage connections to foster healing for wounded souls.
Soul wounds are pervasive in our world, with a range of origins and characteristics. The field of trauma theory provides tools to unpack the dynamics associate with these wounds.
Preaching with empathy for wounded souls can help with healing. Using the stories of wounded biblical figures is helpful, as is addressing the wounds that have been caused by the church.
The book showcases worship practices, sermons and ministries that are actively engaged in supporting healing for those with wounded souls.
