Sickness - its Trials and Blessings
Sickness: Its Trials and Blessings - free online copy
by Priscilla Maurice
Modernised by Alison Bailey Castellina 2009
Priscilla Maurice's 'Sickness: its Trials and Blessings'
was a best selling Victorian Christian classic from an informed and traditional Christian perspective modernised written by someone with chronic illness for those enduring it. Alison Bailey, in this edition, adds for the first time the author's short biography. Priscilla Maurice's systematic treatment of the "wholly different state" of illness, together with her deep understanding of human psychology makes this book a precious gift for those with long-term health conditions.
