Prayer, Medicine and Healing

PRAYER, MEDICINE, AND HEALING is an invitation to pray for the sick based on evidence from the Bible, Church History, and the origins of the Modern Hospital. Tracing the history of healing from the Hebrew Bible and reviewing the healing ministry of Jesus and His disciples, Thomson K. Mathew examines church history (Church fathers, Reformers, Holiness leaders, Pentecostals, and Charismatics Oral Roberts and Paul Yonggi Cho) and the history of hospitals to affirm both medicine and prayer. He addresses skeptics, acknowledges fake healers, and presents strong evidence for all followers of Jesus to pray for the sick and expect healing. This inspiring book is for those who administer healing and the ones who seek healing and wholeness.
