I found this book to be a perfect theological primer on the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. I agreed with 99% of what was written by the authors and was very thankful that what they taught was backed up by scripture.

I have actually met and talked with Dr. Randy Clark and have found him to be a very grounded theologian. He came out of Baptist roots and is now one of the leading teachers on the subject of healing. He documents proclaimed miracle healings in his ministry and follows up weeks later to determine the actual validity of those who claimed healings in his meetings. Also, his Doctoral Thesis was on the supernatural effects of prayer on reducing pain and increasing movement for those who have metal in their bodies - healing that can be scientifically proven after prayer. Needless to say, he is bent on proving in an intellectual manner that Jesus Christ heals supernaturally today as He did when He walked in the flesh. This is a great read and one I keep handy for reference. ...more

This is an excellent book. It helps me so much in how to minister healing to the sick. Though thenformattting is poor (and the blame is on Google for that, not on the authors), the book is easy and interesting to read. May God bless the authors.

Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
~Excerpt from the Lord's Prayer

Healing seems to be the one thing for which everyone has prayed whether to benefit other people and themselves. As Christians, we believe God heals. He can heal, but the question that lingers is will He heal? The authors of The Essential Guide to Healing: Equipping All Christians to Pray for the Sick--may God bless them--have changed my perspective on this part of the prayer Jesus taught to his Thy kingdom come.
Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
~Excerpt from the Lord's Prayer

Healing seems to be the one thing for which everyone has prayed whether to benefit other people and themselves. As Christians, we believe God heals. He can heal, but the question that lingers is will He heal? The authors of The Essential Guide to Healing: Equipping All Christians to Pray for the Sick--may God bless them--have changed my perspective on this part of the prayer Jesus taught to his disciples. He prayed God's will to be done on earth as it is in heaven. I have always thought that was kind of saying that God's will is not done on earth as it is in heaven but we wish it were. I did not think about the scope of this simple yet awe-striking concept, until I read this book and now I will never perceive those words the same as I did before. We shall see God's will being done on earth (just as it is in heaven) when we live as if we are in the kingdom--as Jesus did--and believers are living in the kingdom, but Christianity has become a religion of "unbelieving believers" who do not recognize this.

Jesus said the Kingdom was at hand (here right now)...and He healed people here on earth because it is God's will. These are a few excerpts from the book:

"Healing was a major part of Jesus' ministry. There is no cancer in heaven. Neither is there any blindness or deafness or any other malady in that realm. Freedom from disease is God's will on earth. Period. God has not commanded us to pray for healing in order to frustrate us."

"Remember, healing is not just something God does. It is who He is. His name is Jehovah Rapha, the God who heals. (Exodus 15:26)"

"While it can truthfully be said that Jesus did not heal everyone alive in His day, it must also be noted that He healed everyone who came to Him. No exceptions. The measure of faith people expressed varied..."

The book tells a bit about the history of the church and about how it has come about that Christians today succumb to liberalism, not believing in anything supernatural ever happen whether as recorded in the Bible or today, and cessationism, believing that the gifts of healing and other works of miracles no longer exist in the sense of someone having these gifts or that such gifts were given to the apostles only. This book address these concerns as well as other misconceptions that most "unbelieving believers" have.

I cannot fully express how thankful I am to to have had the opportunity to read and review this book. I wish to thank Bill Johnson and Randy Clark for co-authoring this book, each giving his unique perspective within individually written chapters. It truly has been one that spoke to my soul and spirit. I was not raised in a charismatic church, yet having been sensitive to other people's pains for years now (in answer to a spiritual fast seeking to surrender to and receive guidance from the Lord), being given knowledge about things I could not possibly have guessed, and having prayed for healing with some healed, I am now more confident in these words of knowledge and healing prayers just knowing that others, like the authors, experience exactly the same things. This is not a book just for those who believe in healing, but it is a book I highly recommend for people who desire to be in a healing ministry, sensing guidance and the workings of the Holy Spirit. If I could, I would give this book to every member of my church...and every church!

Disclosure of Material Connection: I received this book free from the publisher through the Bethany House Publishers book review program. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. ...more

I loved this book, the comments by some that it was "arrogant and.condescending" or that it lacked "grace and love", only show that we to concerned with ratifying, coddling, and appeasing people, than we are encouraging them to "love and GOOD WORKS". This is.a great book, and if it offended you, then know that Jesus said, He came to.be a stumbling block. Jesus will always offend your flesh and fear.

A great book containing a mix of the biblical/theoretical basis for healing along with the practical side of how.

Bill and Randy combine well with their chapters.

Some great information in here, but Randy finishes with the exhortation for us to "do the stuff" (quoting John Wimber).

My church tradition isn't very pro healing so there are some obstacles and baggage to be left behind.

This book covered the theology of healing. Apparently there are Christian theology that claimed that there will be no more miracles after the Bible has been canonized! Clark and Johnson showed how God still brings people to him through His healing. We are to be instruments of His healing by praying for people to be healed. Many examples were given of people who has been healed.

Clark and Johnson showed how God still brings people to him through His healing. We are to be instruments of His healing by praying for people to be healed. Many examples were given of people who has been healed.

They explained that prayer is very important to help diagnose the problem. Sometimes it is sin; sometimes it is demonic power; sometimes it is in forgiveness; all these must be dealt with in order for complete healing to happen. Furthermore if the person who is healed is not filled with God, afflictions related to demonic powers may we’ll return. They also explained that one must ask the sick what the problem is, and after each prayer ask whether they feel anything and whether healing had occurred. Sometimes the sick can be healed even without prayer.

What of those who are not healed? Well no medical treatment can heal everyone, but doctors give them anyway. It is no different with prayer; God’s will is for everyone to be healed, so it is never a problem of whether He wants it or not.

I felt so ministered when I was reading this book! ...more

As a concise discussion between two of the most prolific voices in healing ministries today, reading in their own words of their years of experience is a refreshing glimpse at the humility and audacity that each has had in praying for the sick. This book is a brief interview of two men who are amazed by God's grace that He would use them to make a difference in the lives of people around the world.

This book is a brief interview of two men who are amazed by God's grace that He would use them to make a difference in the lives of people around the world. I found this book to be very eye opening to their challenges as they have each led people in the joy of praying for the well-being of others.

This book is simple, yet profound. With years of experience behind them, they each share scripture basis for why we should all be praying for the sick, why we should expect healing, and how we can have confidence when we pray.

If you are needing encouragement to pray for others, this book will help you to find the passion for ministering healing for those who are sick. ...more

What I so love about books by Randy Clark and Bill Johnson, is that they write from experience. Stories combined with scriptural references. This book is no exception, it is encouraging and uplifting, it brings hope and gives the necessary tools to begin operating in the gifts of healing. Clark starts with a statement that sets the stage for the book: "To properly understand healing, one must experience it.

This is a very practical book approaching the topic of healing through the power of God made manifest through the presence of the Holy Spirit and the name of Jesus.

There are several illustrations and examples of the principles that both Randy Clark and Bill Johnson present in each chapter.

Through reading this book, reading the scripture, and prayer; I have become thoroughly convinced that the true experience and expression of the kingdom of God consists of 1) the truth of the gospel and 2) demonstration of God's power and dominion over this world in the form of healing and miracles. I am excited to see where this journey takes me and I want to experience the fullness of what God intended for the lives of those who follow Jesus.

I 50/50 on this one. I really enjoy the conversational style the authors took in sharing testimonies on the healing power of God. There are some practical concepts here on how God moves in healing. Here is my only hang up, sometimes it feels like the authors are trying to present a packaged formula on how to get God to move. Maybe that's just me. I really did enjoy all the testimonies of healings and it increased my faith.

Inspiring AND Practical

I wasn't sure what to expect from reading this book and was ecstatic to learn that the knowledge in this book is transformative!! A must read for every true believer!! Everything from the content to the personal testimonies teach you HOW to do as Jesus commanded us to do in Matthew 10:8.

Excellent!!

I got an explanation for something I just thought was strange! I'm actuality I was receiving a Word of Knowledge for my friend so I could pray for her but no one ever explained it before! Next time it happens I will definitely pray and I KNOW God will deliver her!

Full of wild, good information and guidance, but the format of the book is so messy and thrown together. An entire section even repeats itself. Please try harder, or at least hire an editor. Despite the terrible format, the world needs this information!

Loved it! An absolute must for those interested in the miraculous and healing. Healing is not just for the few, it was for all believers both to receive and to be a vessel of.

It was pretty good. It made me think about some aspects of how we as Christians should go about praying for healing. Good biblical evidence was used. Recommend if interested.
