Description
 
John Wimber profoundly believes that healing is fundamental to the church’s ministry and life.  Power Healing dramatically relives his struggle to understand the nature of healing and how it brought him to a new understanding of why Jesus heals and how he heals through us.

Wimber provides practical models for the healing ministry.  He explores healing in the Old Testament, offers an overview of healing by Jesus and the disciples, and discusses the healing that occurs in hospitals.  This clear, detailed, and hands-on analysis is essential reading for anyone interested in Christian healing today.

Endorsements:

In an age when the explosive power of the Holy Spirit is becoming increasingly evident across the spectrum of Christian denominations, the need for informed explanation, orientation, and interpretation is acute.  In Power Healing, John Wimber meets that need.  Here is a major work on divine healing, soundly based on biblical scholarship and thoroughly immersed in hands-on ministry experiences.  It is destined to take its place among the classics on the subject.
