KIRKUS REVIEW

The possibility of sickness comes from God, but the specific actuality definitely does not. Man's natural state is that of health. From such a premise John Pitts, confined to a wheel chair, but firmly convinced of the possibility and naturalness of healing by faith, expounds his argument for the reality of health through the Spirit of God in conjunction with the spirit of man. He makes an excellent case for the truth of this conclusion. Although the author quotes scientists and physicians to the extent of proving his points, he wisely refrains from making his exposition in any way technical. Thus the simple man can read and have faith and pray the prayer of faith. The chapter on Christ's healing outlines the principles under which he worked. Mr. the point that with Christ physical healing was always connected with spiritual health and that it was secondary to spiritual redemption. He disparage health which throw faith healing out of balance with life in its . He by magic and allows for the working of the laws of psychology and While it is foolishness to believe that the anointing oil mixed with from the of a martyrdom will magically bring about a cure, isn't it logical that if the mind affects the body then much more the mightiness of the spirit may health?
