This book is based on a course that the author regularly taught at a major theological college. In it, he explores the value and importance of the Christian ministry of healing, without losing sight of the context of healing within the broader role of the Church to preach Christ's gospel. "What I am convinced about," Father Wilson states, "is that Christ meant his Church to be the instrument through which he would continue to heal, not only sickness and disease, but the ills of the whole world; and that healing results wherever the life of God's Kingdom comes into expression. That is why preaching the Kingdom of God must precede healing the sick." Written in a simple language for ordinary people, and suitable for reading and discussion in groups, this is a highly accessible and relevant book by an experienced and knowledgeable preacher.
