    In God’s Healing Strategy Ted Grimsrud attempts to distill the message of the Bible by portraying it as a single coherent narrative In the narrative he distinguishes two parts The first the Old Testament introduces the fundamental problem that faces humankind—sin—and God’s initial attempts to solve that problem The second the New Testament provides the solution for the problem of sin Grimsrud’s image of society is one of continual healing and advancement toward an ultimate idyllic vision His Biblical perspective is designed to exhort believers to reject the mistakes of the past and to pursue healing in their relationships all the while seeing their lives as a natural continuation of God’s healing strategy as described in the BibleGrimsrud begins his book by enunciating what he sees as man’s fundamental problem He writes that there is a loving God but that man’s relationship has been broken The tale of how this brokenness came to be is one that he locates within the Old Testament Though many Christians are uncomfortable with the Old Testament and try to avoid it Grimsrud feels that it is a useful tool for understanding God’s healing strategy He provides several warrants for using the Old Testament the chief of which is that it “provides a rich record of the history of God’s people striving to understand God” 25 It is this history that he examines in the first seven chapters of his bookGrimsrud walks chronologically through the Old Testament narrative naturally starting with Genesis In Genesis chapter 1 he finds a very important statement upon which his entire Biblical theology is based God after bringing order from the chaos of the void looks at his creation and sees that it is good God after creating humans to be in relationship with him looks at them and sees that they are good Grimsrud thus sees goodness as the natural and proper state of the world It is the natural and proper state of humankind Humans were created inherently good But then a problem arises Adam and Eve sin They destroy the goodness of God’s creation They break the good relationship that God created them to be in with him This chasm between God and man is the fundamental problem of the Bible and it is a chasm that only seems to widen as the Genesis narrative continues God meets Adam and Eve’s sin with mercy and attempts at healing They don’t die immediately He continues to talk to them Then Cain kills Abel Again God meets him with mercy But the world grows darker and farther away from God At this point Grimsrud suggests God has two options He can either destroy his creation and start over or he can try to restore his creation to its original goodness Grimsrud sees the Flood as an abortive attempt at the first option The rainbow is a sign that God has changed his mind and committed to the second option Grimsrud draws from this the controversial theological conclusion that “God is changeable” 36 The story of the Bible then is a story of restoration It is a story in which God desires for all of creation to return to its original goodnessGrimsrud traces this story through the remainder of the Old Testament largely with the purpose of differentiating between what the healing strategy tries to move away from and what it tries to move toward Grimsrud characterizes this movement as bringing “newness” and offers Abraham as the first in a long line of evidences of God’s newness Abraham and Sarah Grimsrud says are the beginning of a community of faith Not only does God bring newness to Abraham and Sarah but he promises to make them and their descendants a blessing to all the earth by bringing that newness to all people This strategy of moving toward “newness” perhaps better characterized considering Grimsrud’s depiction of the original human condition as “oldness” is one that God is clearly committed to over the long termBut what is newness? What does newness move toward and what does it move away from? Grimsrud concludes that newness moves toward salvation and liberation as evidenced by the Exodus account The same account says Grimsrud makes it clear that newness moves away from violence and from the injustices of imperial Egypt The rest of the Old Testament is the story of God’s people wrestling primarily with these two issues The kingship brings these issues into primary focus When Israel asks for a king the prophet Samuel tells them that a human king will make them slaves and will return both to injustice and to empire The Bible vividly depicts this loss of liberation and triumph of injustice in the characters of David and Solomon David Israel’s greatest king falls into terrible sin Solomon its so called wisest king transforms his role into an oppressive authoritarian regime The Prophets then appear to speak out against the kingship and all its injustice They teach that God loves his people even though they seem to have intentionally moved away from his newness and that he remains committed to healing God brings exile destruction war plague and death to purge Israel of dehumanization exploitation and religiosity And still he remains committed to the healing strategyAs Grimsrud moves into the New Testament he ceases to use the language of problems and begins instead to use the language of solutions He starts his analysis at the logical place the person of Jesus Christ Jesus came to establish a kingdom of liberation In Jesus’ time oppression still remains despite all the best efforts of the Prophets In one way he simply continues where they left off He continues to denounce the powers that be and to preach justice and repentance His message continues to be one of critiue and of healing In fact Jesus makes his healing even impactful than did the prophets by extending it into the physical realm His mercy compassion and genuine desire for healing are made manifest in the miracles he performs He does just enough of these to make his point but not enough to make it seem as though the miracles are the substance of his mission At some point he turns away from the supernatural works that had characterized his early ministry and turns wholeheartedly to teaching His teachings are down to earth teach a positive view of life challenge people’s expectations and champion liberationJesus’ teachings and miracles of course would be as vain as the Prophets’ if he did not ualify them with an even radical kind of newness This newness manifests itself in his death and resurrection Jesus is willing to go the way of suffering and he teaches his followers to do the same His death seals his message It gives it an air of finality It shows the world just how serious he is And it provides a prime paradigm for others to follow His resurrection is at least eually significant It vindicates his life It shows that God’s love is stronger than death and gives the healing strategy some teeth And most importantly it keeps God’s healing strategy going If Jesus had stayed dead then that would be the end of his revolution But instead he rises again and with him rises the vision of a perfected restored communityBut again there would be no point to all Jesus’ work if his message his paradigm his strategy were not embodied by the people of God In chapters 10 and 11 Grimsrud describes the transformation of God’s people that results from Messiah’s teachings crucifixion and resurrection He starts in the Book of Acts which especially drives home the important point that Jesus’ healing strategy is a continuation of the healing that occurred in the Old Testament The Church expands first to Judea then to Samaria then to all the world recalling the promise to Abraham that his descendants would be a blessing to all nations On the Day of Pentecost the Holy Spirit removes the confusion of languages that occurred at Babel Peter preaches Jesus not as something entirely new but as a culmination of the Old Testament’s healing strategy Though the community after Christ seems to be much successful at moving toward healing moving toward justice and moving toward newness Acts emphasizes that this is not a different strategy It is merely the old healing strategy finally embodied Grimsrud then moves on to uickly mention Paul who works chiefly to motivate “good” people who do bad things to trust in God’s mercy as a solution for their sinRevelation for Grimsrud is partly a present reality and partly a future hope It is another call for Christians to reject the norm of emperor worship and injustice and the embrace faithfulness But it is also a description of the New Jerusalem the ultimate embodiment by God’s people of the healing strategy In some sense this is achieved by the believers in Christ in the first century In another sense it is looked forward to as those believers spread their message to the ends of the earth In the New Jerusalem is the victory of healing the return to Eden and the restoration of goodnessGrimsrud closes with a summary of his theology In essence he says that the Bible is intended a coherent narrative that points toward ultimate healing It is a single story that promotes justice and faithfulness and rejects empire Grimsrud also challenges believers to continue to pursue the healing that the Bible describes with the ultimate hope that one day we may once and for all fulfill the vision of the New Jerusalem

    There are many points in this book that either directly contradict the Bible ie God changes or made me go hmmm that doesn't seem uite right While the author does make some good points his disorganization and articulation of ideas makes it hard to figure out what he truly believesEdit after rereading the book I liked it far There are definitely still some ideas that I don't subscribe to but the overall message that God is in the process of bringing about healing for this earth through first Israel then Jesus and continued today through the church and that the healing will be completed at the second coming rings true and is decently supported While it still is not my favorite book I can appreciate it much now and where Grimsrud is coming from

    A welcome and welcoming look at the whole story of the Bible showing us a God of love and mercy as opposed to punishment and wrath Mercy for me implies mercy for everyone p 95 We who are loved by God should love as God loves p 95 Where John the baptiser preaches repent for fear of God's wrath Jesus says repent change life direction because of the good news that God is love and God's mercy will lead to the good life p 128Although I read through it in a couple of days because it is a theme I have interest in the book is in a group study format
