But I have to say out of literally thousands of pages and hundreds of hours of videos and audio on the subject, this book truly is the ESSENTIAL book on the subject.
Pastors Randy and Bill have managed to summarize the entire area of healing in one fairly-short and very easy to read book. They succinctly summarize the theology behind it (and where the theology had digressed over the years). They clearly explain how and why God heals today, and they even teach very honestly and plainly on how to receive words of knowledge (one way God speaks to His children today).
This book is priceless. And I will personally recommend it to anyone and everyone as the BEST book available today on the subject of Healing.
Save yourself lots of hunting and searching for the nuts and bolts of healing, and check out this gem.
Many Christians were taught not to believe the sign gifts are for today. Randy Clark will lay a foundation and show the biblical bases of healing. His word study revealed that healings, miracles, signs, and wonders were the number one way God received glory.
Randy Clark expounds on reasons- societal, theological, and church factors- as to why believers today discount healing and miracles. Bill Johnson believes prayer is the initial part of our assignment in co- laboring with the Lord. It is where the heart of God is with the heart of man and the purposes of God are released into the earth. The authors believe praying in the Spirit is important to building one's faith. Good bible study, impartation, radical obedience including risk, and correctly stewarding what God gives us will aid us in moving in the miraculous. Transformation of the world around us is the expected result of carrying His presence.
True transformation can occur in regions where strongholds are present by testifying of God's redemptive work, coupled with intercessory prayer.
You will learn the soul/body connection and why deep and complete confession is an essential ingredient of a healthy lifestyle. Dealing with psychosomatic roots of illness is a significant aspect of ministering healing.
Learn how words of knowledge operate in the body of Christ and the five step prayer model that will carefully walk you through steps when ministering to others to get to the root of the problem and pray effectively.
This is an excellent resource and comes from the heart of two men that have learned how to minister effectively and have personally seen thousands of miracles take place within congregations, crusades, and in the marketplace.

The book is full of wonderful stories. It starts with the personal testimonies of Randy and Bill where they explain how they came to believe that healing is for today. These open and honest accounts set the tone for the rest of the book.
Part 2 deals with the theology of healing. Randy first discusses the biblical context for healing, and then covers the theological objections that are often raised. He describes how the Lord's power should go with proclaiming the gospel, and that healing is for all believers. A chapter follows on factors that have contributed to a demise in faith for healing. Included here is a wonderful story of a traditional Baptist church in Brazil which went from a size of 300 when Randy first visited, to a main congregation of 9,000 plus 5,000 in satellite churches within a few years.
Bill then takes up the reigns with chapters on `Healing and the Kingdom' and `Healing and the Authority of the Believer'. He discusses the importance of the Kingdom of God where there is no sickness, the authority believers have in Christ and the way this has led to seeing miracles in public places.
Part 3 covers the practice of healing. Bill helpfully lists the things he has done to see an increase in healing by `Creating a Faith Culture', and he emphasises the power of sharing testimonies and the rich benefits he has found from doing this. Then there is a chapter on `Healing and a Prosperous Soul' which discusses the connection between the mind and physical sickness.
The final two chapters are written by Randy. There is a wonderful chapter on `Words of Knowledge for Healing', a practical guide on how to receive words, how to give words, and their power. I found this very helpful. The last chapter explains how to pray for healing, and the importance of hearing and obeying the voice of the Spirit. Randy describes a five-step model based on the way Jesus prayed for healing, a very useful framework particularly for those new to praying for healing. After Randy learned it from John Wimber he began to see many more people healed.
In summary, this is a wonderful book and I think every Christian would benefit from reading it. Buy it, read it, and put it into practice. If you are hungry for more this book could help change your life!
unfortunately I got sent the workbook version instead.
I enjoyed it and decided not to send it back. I shall get around to reordering the original book sometime
It's encouraged and educated me in a significant way. Now to do some more of it ...
