Overview

All too often our modern society lacks both sight and insight resulting from a refusal to see the reality of creation. Such lack of recognition and appreciation for the Creator is spiritual blindness. Yet, the fruits
and evidence of His love and wisdom are clearly demonstrated
everywhere we look. Author Dr. James Gills, a world-renowned ophthalmologist with a deep love of the Bible, writes about spiritual
blindness with stunning clarity and relevance.

This book illustrates a powerful biblical theme, often repeated throughout the Scriptures: the analogy between the physical and the
spiritual realms regarding blindness and sight. From Isaiah’s vision of
a day when God’s Messiah would be “a light for the Gentiles to open
eyes that are blind” to the fulfillment of the prophecy when Paul was
sent to the Gentiles “to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God.”

Overcoming Spiritual Blindness emphasizes the power and work of the Holy Spirit. What the surgeon does for cataracts that hinder sight
in the physical eye, the Holy Spirit does for the cataracts of the heart.

Overcoming Spiritual Blindness exposes obstructions to spiritual sight that cloud the lens of the soul. Such “cataracts” include pride,
misguided concepts of money, preoccupation with work, distorted views of sex, and a critical spirit. The description of “the cataract of bitterness and an unforgiving spirit” gives such powerful insight that the reader must gain a new perspective of total forgiveness. The list of spiritual cataracts is vast and painfully relevant, highlighting the need for spiritual surgery to those who do not realize they are blind.
