The author, a clergyman of the Episcopal Church, was a science graduate of the Carnegie Institute of Technology. He served in the navy as a research physicist. But he also had direct experiences with healings which have no scientific explanation, and which happened in circumstances which make it appropriate to describe them as spiritual healing. He entered the Christian ministry, and enlarged his experience and understanding of the healing work of the Church. He studied all phases of the reviving spiritual healing movement, and has come to the conclusion that ""the Church needs repentance and will find anew the power to heal when it returns once more to Christ's command to heal the sick"". This fascinating book which he has written gives case histories of healing in their theological background, and produces sound and persuasive arguments against those whose criticism is based on skepticism rather than informed enlightenment. The book is a plea to the Church and to Christians to accept their responsibility for furthering healing in the name of Christ,--and thus recover some of their lost radiance. General readers as well as professionals will find this book a source of great help for themselves and their friends.
