Healing Is a Choice by Stephen Arterburn

I wasn't able to finish this book. The theology seemed illogical to me and when something strikes me that way, I don't want to spend any more time on it.
Arterburn writes that choosing to be healed is a person's choice. I believe that. But then it says that God may choose not to heal someone. I haven't seen precedent for this in Scripture.

The book says that if God doesn't decide to heal a person, that they may still go on to acquire other types of healing such as emotional or spiritual healing. Arterburn seems confident that God wouldn't hold back on these types of healing, but he doesn't cite Scripture for these views.

Healing is a Choice reads like the Gospel According to Human Experience.
