Superalloy scriptures


In my book “Reaching for Healing” I talk about combining scriptures together to form superalloys.

“In case you are wondering, a superalloy mixes two metals to get the best properties of both. They tend to be used in high-performance contexts, such as jet engines—and following Jesus!”

Well, someone came up to me today after reading the book who actually designed jet engines. I only knew about these materials from my school physics lessons several decades ago but he has worked first-hand with them, and what’s more, he had one to show me. It was a genuine Rolls-Royce Spirit of Ecstasy made from Nimonic steel. It is a superalloy of nickel, chromium, molybdenum, and carbon (I think that was what he said anyway). Turbine blades need to remain hard and strong at the incredibly high operating temperatures of a jet engine, so no one metal on its own will do the job.

My point in talking about superalloys was that individual scriptures can be forged together to form a strong and resilient basis for faith. One might even talk about “blades” as scripture is after all the “sword of the Spirit” (Ephesians 6:17). Thinking about it, the whole book is actually a fusing of four chapters of the New Testament into a robust expectation for supernatural healing. I hope it helps many people forge powerful weapons to wield against all sorts of horrid sicknesses.
