All too often our modern society lacks both sight and insight resultingfrom a refusal to see the reality of creation. Such lack of recognitionand appreciation for the Creator is spiritual blindness. Yet, the fruitsand evidence of His love and wisdom are clearly demonstratedeverywhere we look. Author Dr. James Gills, a world-renownedophthalmologist with a deep love of the Bible, writes about spiritualblindness with stunning clarity and relevance. This book illustrates a powerful biblical theme, often repeatedthroughout the Scriptures: the analogy between the physical and thespiritual realms regarding blindness and sight. From Isaiah s vision ofa day when God s Messiah would be a light for the Gentiles to openeyes that are blind to the fulfillment of the prophecy when Paul wassent to the Gentiles to open their eyes and turn them from darknessto light, and from the power of Satan to God. Overcoming Spiritual Blindness emphasizes the power and work ofthe Holy Spirit. What the surgeon does for cataracts that hinder sightin the physical eye, the Holy Spirit does for the cataracts of the heart. Overcoming Spiritual Blindness exposes obstructions to spiritualsight that cloud the lens of the soul. Such cataracts include pride,misguided concepts of money, preoccupation with work, distorted views of sex, and a critical spirit. The description of the cataract of bitterness and an unforgiving spirit gives such powerful insight that the reader must gain a new perspective of total forgiveness. The list of spiritual cataracts is vast and painfully relevant, highlighting the need for spiritual surgery to those who do not realize they are blind.
