Abstract

This thesis attempts to reassess health and healing in mission, afresh and relevantly, in view of the growing changes and complexities of globalization. The writer attempts to find out what is meant by health in the Bible, in the perspective of God’s mission and the mission of God’s people and, from there, to infer what should be done with regards to health and the quest for wholeness as part of missionary efforts today. Hence, this thesis is based on a biblical, historical and contemporary approach to analysing the mission experience that includes health interventions in order to derive a better understanding of health and wholeness in the mission of God’s people at the start of the third millennium.
