"The Rabbi’s Touch" by Annetta Lammers is a book that tells ten stories of healing done by Jesus. The stories are told the way that the Bible portrays. It was fun to read these and to be recaptured by the fact that Jesus did and still can heal.

Each story starts with a Bible verse, but the verse isn't the one where the story is told, which at first was a bit of a surprise to me. At first, I wanted the verse to be where the story appeared but then after thinking about it I decided I like the different verses because it brought out the main point of the book's theme, that Jesus does heal.

One story in the book was when Jesus healed a woman in the Synagogue on a Sabbath, and I was no, it was a man. I had to look it and Jesus did heal a 
woman in the Synagogue on a Sabbath and He also healed the man but that wasn't in the Synagogue. So I say this book is a reminder  of stories that most of us have heard and forgotten.

Yes, Jesus does heal and this book is just ten examples of that and I think this book would be a great gift for someone needing to believe in there healing power of Jesus. But, I am also thinking that if I gave this book as a gift I would with the warning that Jesus doesn't always heal because He has a purpose for whatever illness they are going through, I am thinking about Paul, who asked three times to be healed but was told "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness."

I received a contemporary copy from the author and Celebrate Lit and these opinions are my own.

More from Annetta

I counted my journals, wondering. A drawer filled with thirty-three journals. The years of words held in those pages cover countless seasons of living and following Jesus. Even the gaps of silence speak volumes in the journey.

This passion for writing, evident in that drawer of journals, has had the dream of a book tucked within it.  And, quite by surprise, a book has formed and grown these past years. The Rabbi’s Touchbegan innocently with the study of Blind Bartimaeus. His miracle took shape in my imagination, taking on sounds, images and emotions.  Notes and reflections about his healing found their way in the current journal. Hidden Greek meanings fed my imagination until I was Bartimaeus meeting Jesus. That encounter took on words that needed to be put down on paper as his story.  Bartimaeus’ story led to another short story, which led to another.  Each story was driven by the desire to enter the lives of those who met Jesus and were healed. Each story was written with the longing to encounter Jesus for myself, as if I had never met Him before. Perhaps I would grow in knowing Him.  And I did.

As the stories grew, so did a quiet desire for others to meet Him as I had. Perhaps others could meet Jesus on their dusty road, make eye contact with Him, hear His voice and feel His healing touch?  Perhaps a conviction of what He can do will grow, and they, too, could be determined to press in to receive what is His to give?  Perhaps they also will cast aside the veil they have been hiding behind and walk free? Perhaps you can meet Him, too?  So, here it is, a collection of first-hand stories, ready for you to encounter Jesus.

I think I will like how the author has set up this book, and it will be a good refresher or reminder of the healing miracles of Jesus.
