If you want to be healed, and especially if you want God to use you to heal others, this book is a must read.

Trillions of dollars are spent annually in the health industry in our daily battle with sickness. In Doing Healing, Alexander Venter gives us an awesome vision of God’s healing power by addressing incisively and provocatively the questions of:
  • How we understand sickness and healing
  • How our view of reality affects this understanding
  • What the Bible says about it
  • How Jesus healed people
  • How he authorized and empowered the church to heal

He then gives a practical “how to” in the six basic dimensions of human sickness: spiritual, psycho-emotional, demonic, physical, relational, death, and dying.
