“Do you want to be healed?”
Jesus asks that question several times in the Bible—of the woman at the well, Bartimaeus the blind man, the woman caught in adultery, the rich young man—and he asks the same of you as well.
Do You Want to Be Healed? is a 10-day personal retreat that uses a healing process similar to the one found in the author Bob Schuchts’s bestselling book Be Healed.
Each day of the do-it-yourself retreat engages you with a question Jesus asked his followers and uses the traditional practice of lectio divina (divine reading) to dive into a scriptural scene where Jesus heals the spiritually and physically sick.
Through the five movements of reading, meditation, prayer, contemplation, and action, you will encounter the biblical figures who received the healing words of Jesus, you will undergo your own spiritual healing and discover your personal response to Jesus’s most probing questions, including:
- Do you want to be made well?
- What are you thinking in your heart?
- Has no one condemned you?
- Can you drink the cup?
- Have you come to believe? and
- Do you love me more than these?
Through these questions and the healing answering them brings about, you will come to understand the principles of spiritual healing—such as facing your brokenness, acknowledging your sin and shame, and discovering the healing power of the sacraments—Schuchts shares in Be Healed.
Those who have already read Be Healed will be drawn deeper into their healing with a refresher on the core principles of Schuchts’s work. The book is also perfect for those who want to begin the process of spiritual healing. Do You Want to Be Healed? also is an essential resource for pastors, spiritual directors, therapists, and those who help lead others in an integration of their human and spiritual formation.

“You will never be the same.”
“Experience this scriptural retreat, because when Jesus brings the word of his power to bear on your honest yearnings, what happens to them is so profound that you will never be the same.”
Author of Unleashed
“Bob Schuchts has a uniquely powerful gift in helping people approach the Lord with simple but expectant faith. This book is a welcome and reliable guide to helping ordinary Christians come to know the healing love of Jesus in areas of physical, emotional, and spiritual pain.”
Fr. Mathias Thelen
President of Encounter Ministries
“A special gift.”
“Do You Want To Be Healed? is like having a personalized retreat with Bob Schuchts. Having done many retreats with Schuchts, I know that is a special gift. As he guides you through this book, he doesn’t want you to encounter himself, he desires for you to encounter the healing love of Jesus. That was my experience of this book and that is what makes it very special.”

“Bob Schuchts masterfully blends his psychological and spiritual understanding of the person to create a deeply healing experience for the reader. This ten-day retreat will restore your dignity as a child of God and I highly recommend it to anyone looking to grow as a disciple.”
