By His Wounds: Trauma Healing for Africa is the textbook for MTS’ foundational three-piece intensive healing curriculum for African and African American leaders. It integrates the voices of African survivors, social-science research, and a theology of suffering, healing, and forgiveness in a way that both promotes individual healing and guides advocates in the compassionate and holistic care of others, enabling healing in nurturing relationships. Each chapter includes healing art, contemplative meditations on Christ, and journaling exercises that deepen intimacy with God and others. BHW includes a Five-Heart template for knowing and sharing one’s story with others. BHW is best offered in a six-day intensive format which guides faith and community leaders through a 50-hour healing intensive before they are trained in facilitation.
By His Wounds Workbook: Trauma Healing for Africa is an eleven-chapter companion resource to the book, By His Wounds, Trauma Healing for Africa, and is best used in small group settings.
By His Wounds Facilitator Guide includes teaching aids and best-practice guidelines to assist MTS’ BHW trainers in developing small group facilitators.
