Riassunto: This meaningful book of prayers and devotions by J. Wilmer Gresham, the former Dean of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, is comparable to Oswald Chamber's My Utmost for His Highest. Dean Greshan's reflections on the healing power of Christ hold a poignancy that can only come from one whose knowledge is gleaned from a lifetime of personal experience.

To all who are strong and seek his consecration,
To all who are spent and seek his renewal,
To all who are suffering and seek his release,
To all who are disheartened and seek his cheer,
To all who are tired and seek his rest,
To all who are adrift and seek his friendship,
To all who are confused and seek his guidance,
this little book is dedicated.
FROM THE INTRODUCTION
"This twenty-first edition of "Wings of Healing" is based on the 1957 printing, the last in Dean Gresham's life-time, containing his final revisions. It includes nearly a hundred readings, each paired with a note by Gresham.
This is a book to read slowly, perhaps just one selection each morning. The poems and essays, many from the nineteenth century, may evoke nostalgia or even amazement at the seemingly simple faith of an earlier era. But do not romanticize them: Their courage and cheerfulness are hard won. Their authors knew illness and death, poverty and disaster, to an extent nearly forgotten in America today.
Dean Gresham himself, devastated by his wife's death the year after he retired, returned many evenings to the sidewalk in front of their former home, where he was seen silently weeping. But the stained-glass window he commissioned in her honor affirms that the Lord is our shepherd, and that goodness and mercy follow us all the days of our life.
It is the Publishers' hope that readers will continue to be inspired by Dean Gresham's gentle and generous spirit, by his intimacy with and unshakable trust in his Lord, and by his dedication to making the broken whole."
