Extraordinary accounts of healing by ordinary people of faith! This book is the result of a study conducted by the Author, Dr. Jane Teas, and her collaborators, at the South Carolina Cancer Center, in Columbia, SC. The study explored the role that faith plays in healing, through hundreds of interviews of Christians in the Columbia, SC area. All study participants gave informed consent to the use of their stories for the purposes of the study, and for publication. Names were altered to protect confidentiality. This work yielded 107 original stories of faith and healing, 45 of which are presented in this collection. Since the interviews were audio-recorded and transcribed, the stories are presented almost exactly as they were told. The original transcripts of all the interviews conducted have been deposited in the permanent research collection of the Smithsonian Museum of American History.
