Equipping All Christians to Pray for the Sick 

A Division of Baker Publishing Group

Book Description

October 1, 2011
The Bible is full of accounts of miraculous healing. And God is moving as amazingly today as he was back then. Thousands are being healed all over the world--and his children are part of it.

For the first time, premier renewal leaders Bill Johnson and Randy Clark team up to equip Christians to minister healing. Grounded from start to finish in Scripture, Johnson and Clark lay out the rich theological and historical foundation for healing in the church today. Full of inspiring stories, this book offers practical, proven, step-by-step guidance to ministering healing, including how to
• understand the authority of the believer in healing
• create an atmosphere of faith
• receive words of knowledge
• implement the five-step model of healing prayer

The ministry of healing is not reserved for a select few. God's miraculous healing is part of the Good News--and every believer can become a conduit for his healing power.

My Review:
This is a great resource book to keep on hand. It encourages us to seek more of God. Its teaching is sound and biblical on the subject of healing.This is a great book for not only those in ministry but for every christian who wishes to fulfill God's command to all believers in Mark 16: 15-18 (NIV)
15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation. 16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.”

There are three parts to this book. The first part is the authors sharing their personal journey in regards to healing.
The second part deals with what the bible says about healing and the theological foundation of these biblical truths of healing.
The third part of the book deals with the actual practice of healing. It deals with the different ways God works through us to pray for the healing of others.
This book provides good practical advise that comes from sound scriptures.
I would recommend this book to every christian.

I received this book free from Bethany House for this review.
