With Ebola coming to America and fear gripping the nation (or, at least the media), I thought that it would be helpful to look again at how early Christians addressed sickness and plague. I wrote about this in my book, When Heaven and Earth Collide, and also printed this excerpt a couple of months ago when Ann Coulter was criticizing Christian missionaries for going TO Africa. Coulter said that they should have stayed here and attended to American needs. She was incredibly short-sighted, though. The sickness over there came here anyway.
