What People Are Saying

From the Publisher
"Harry Kraus has dedicated his life to restoring human bodies to health. This book does the same for the church, the body of Christ."
Max Lucado, author, You Are Special; Minister of Preaching, Oak Hills Church, San Antonio, Texas

"Harry Kraus understands love-biblical, selfless, servant love-the way few do. Get lost in the lines of The Cure and remember once more the reason you're here-to love and love well."
Karen Kingsbury, Author of Ever After and Between Sundays

"Harry Kraus has already proved his skill as a writer after more than two decades' worth of novels. In my favorites, I'm amazed at the intertwining subplots and the just plain good stories that hold me to the last page with imagination, suspense, romance, and gospel mixed together in well-proportioned doses. In his first non-fiction books, Breathing Grace and now The Cure, Kraus's expert storytelling provides the setting for larger direct doses of biblical truth than what's effective in a novel. In his life as a physician, Kraus looks at normal events and sees parallels with God and our need for him. In The Cure, facts about a healthy human body become parables of a healthy body of Christ. Realities as diverse as DNA and a disastrous first date point us personally toward God and the immensity of his love and how much we need that love. I expect to give away many copies of The Cure."
Noël Piper, Author, Treasuring God in Our Traditions, Faithful Women and Their Extraordinary God; Wife, Mother, Grandmother
