Overview

If you've ever been confused - or intrigued - by the claims of faith healers or the counter-claims of their detractors, then Healing in the Name of God will offer you clarity, insight, balance, compassion, and advice on achieving more true health in your own life. Healing in the Name of God studies not just contemporary attitudes toward divine healing, but it examines healing through the ages. It tells of conflict between our evolving scientific knowledge and our changing approaches to religious practice, and it explores ways in which modern medicine increasingly uses Bible-era ideas for more effective health care. This book explores healing from all perspectives - religion; psychology; superstition; medical science; and both well-intentioned and fraudulent faith healers. Furthermore, it offers a balanced judgment about what can be objectively believed about healing: Can someone heal by faith alone? How do fraudulent healings take place? Are science and religion mutually exclusive? Is there a difference between being cured and being healed? This is a popularly written, informative book that will help you decide how to respond to those who claim to heal in the name of God.
