Overview

Since New Testament times, Christians have relied on their faith to heal all manner of medical conditions. Relying on the biblical model, various healing ministries have sprung up in most Christian traditions and have been sanctioned by the major denominations. But those pursuing this calling often puzzle over certain questions related to the spiritual gift of healing:

-“Might the innate human capacity for self-healing be connected in some way to miraculous divine intervention?”
-“How can those in Christian healing ministries make the best use of God-given powers of self-healing?”
-“What do the Bible and modern science have to say about the relationship of the mind, body and spirit in the healing process?”
-“Can biblical healing be combined in some ways with modern medical procedures and knowledge?”

Christian Mind Body Healing Strategies represents an attempt to provide answers to these and other important questions. The book relies on the latest, groundbreaking research by co-author Dr. Herbert Benson of the Harvard Medical School, who is the world’s leading authority on mind body medicine. Writing with his long-time collaborator, evangelical Bible teacher and author William Proctor, Dr. Benson provides readers with the scientific authority and practical procedures to merge mind body medicine with traditional biblical healing.

A shorter version of this work appeared as an article in the Southern Baptist journal, The Criswell Theological Review, and included a personal interview with the authors by Dr. Alan Streett, which is included in this text. In many respects Christian Mind Body Healing Strategies also serves as a specialized supplement to the authors’ landmark work, Relaxation Revolution: Enhancing Your Personal Health through the Science and Genetics of Mind Body Healing.

William Proctor, JD, a graduate of Harvard College and Harvard Law School, has written or co-written more than 80 books, including Beyond the Relaxation Response with Dr. Benson; The Templeton Touch, a biography of Sir John Templeton; and several international bestsellers with the “father of aerobics,” Dr. Kenneth H. Cooper.
An experienced evangelical Bible teacher for more than 30 years and editor of the HCSB Light Speed Bible, Proctor has also written extensively for the evangelical Christian audience. His latest entry in the e-book field is The Resurrection Report: Why the Easter Story is the Greatest News Event in History. To learn more about William Proctor, visit his Web site, http://www.WilliamProctor.com.
Herbert Benson, MD, the Mind Body Medical Institute Associate Professor of Medicine, Harvard Medical School, is the co-author with William Proctor of the recently published Relaxation Revolution: Enhancing Your Personal Health through the Science and Genetics of Mind Body Healing. He is also the author of the mega-bestselling book, The Relaxation Response and ten other trade books and is the author or co-author of more than 170 major medical journal articles. His groundbreaking work established the modern field of mind body medicine. Dr. Benson now serves as the Director Emeritus of the Benson-Henry Institute for Mind Body Medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital.
