So you've prayed to God that He will take your pain away, but it just seems as if He wants you to carry that cross forever. Have you ever thought that perhaps God really does want to heal you, but you're actually standing in the way? Do You Want to Be Healed? Allowing God to Heal Brokenness in Your Life shares a little-known truth about Jesus' healing ministry-you have to be ready for healing before Jesus will heal you. That means you can't keep one foot in your dysfunction while crying out to God for help. You have to go all in before Jesus can perform that healing miracle in your life. If you're ready for that kind of commitment-ready for Jesus to wipe away your tears and heal the brokenness in your soul-take a chance and say, yes, I want to be healed.
Newspaper editor, soldier, political consultant, private investigator, intelligence officer, adjunct professor, business owner, senior executive, Bachelors and Masters Degrees-on paper Tom Mann looks like one of the more successful people you will meet. You would never see the dysfunction that consumed him, caused by too many years of neglect and abuse as a child. For years, he thought everyone else was nuts until the day he realized it was actually him. Crying out to Jesus, Tom found healing, but not in some "shabalee-doo, you're healed" kind of way. No, more like the "Submit yourself fully to Jesus and do things you don't want to do" kind of way. God has used Tom's pain for good, giving Tom the ability to powerfully speak into other's lives about healing. Now he desperately wants you to have the same kind of healing God has given him.

The title was intriguing to say the least, and immediately begged the question in my mind, "Who doesn't want to be healed?" Seems like an easy question to answer at first, until you dig deeper by reading what Tom has to say. After having finished the book over the span of two evenings, I now understand why the author chose this title, and why it is so appropriate. To be clear, this is not one of those "scam" books (my words) that promise instant physical healing if you follow a certain diet program. Instead, it is one of the most authentic, clear, and honest applications of right-living principles to life that I have ever seen. But not just to "life" as a theoretical concept either. This is a practical guide that is focused, concise, and precise. The author demonstrates a willingness to go all the way in pursuit of basic real truths. There are no straw man arguments in this book. Tom focuses on core meanings, and strips away the long words and unnecessarily complex metaphysical arguments that often pop up in religious circles. Tom bares his past and makes himself intensely vulnerable as he describes a lifetime of pain... leading to a beautiful redemption. Reading about the acute traumas in his childhood and adult life can be difficult. But you can't talk about healing without acknowledging an injury exists, right? Tom's vulnerability adds to his credibility, and provides authority for him to speak on practical issues that we all face to varying degrees in our lives. This was incredibly powerful writing, and his personality leaps from page. In combination with his quick wit and clear, practical writing style, it was very easy for me to imagine that Tom was sitting in the room with me and we were just having a conversation. Tom's writing feels natural and not forced. His experiences and thoughts flow out like a natural spring, instead of a man-made well where you have to exert concentrated effort. I felt refreshed after reading it, not exhausted like I had to go through an intellectual obstacle course. The book's central points are clear enough, that it wouldn't be helpful for me to try to summarize them. It's an easy and engrossing read, and you should see for yourself. With Tom's message and writing style, this is a book that should interest people who don't understand Christians. It should also interest those who live, breath, and dream about church every day of the week (I'm not one of them, in case you were wondering). Basically, anyone who has questions about something bigger than themselves (and we all have those kinds of questions) should find this book well worth your time. I'm buying extra copies to have around because I think some of my friends might like it too. This book is a non-threatening way to reach out to people, ask similar questions, and continue a discussion that we should have more often. This book is powerful, credible, and real. It's a fairly quick read because of Tom's writing style, and well worth it.
