From the Back Cover

You can help people stop suffering.
You can make a difference in your world.
You can help deliver God's healing power.

For the first time, pastors and bestselling authors Bill Johnson and Randy Clark team up to equip all Christians to minister healing. Sharing inspiring and exciting stories--and grounded from start to finish in Scripture--Johnson and Clark lay out practical, proven, step-by-step guidance to ministering healing, including how to

• understand your authority in the ministry of healing
• walk out the ministry of healing with anyone you meet and in your personal life
• receive and relay words of knowledge
• implement and apply 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 you, too, can become a powerful conduit for the healing power He loves to manifest.

"It is our hope that each of you will begin to pray for others to be healed after reading this book . . . and that some of you will discover that God has given you a gift of healing."--Randy Clark and Bill Johnson

Finalist in the 2012 Christian Retailing Retailers Choice Awards

I have read many books on healing and on healing evangelists. I have read and studied up on Wigglesworth, Lake, all the greats from the Voice of Healing era (summarized very well in "God's General"), John Wimber, a whole slew of books and people from Bethel Church (Bill Johnson's church) and even listened to Randy Clark teach for 7+ hours on Healing and Impartation.

But I have to say out of literally thousands of pages and hundreds of hours of videos and audio on the subject, this book truly is the ESSENTIAL book on the subject.

Pastors Randy and Bill have managed to summarize the entire area of healing in one fairly-short and very easy to read book. They succinctly summarize the theology behind it (and where the theology had digressed over the years). They clearly explain how and why God heals today, and they even teach very honestly and plainly on how to receive words of knowledge (one way God speaks to His children today).

This book is priceless. And I will personally recommend it to anyone and everyone as the BEST book available today on the subject of Healing.

Save yourself lots of hunting and searching for the nuts and bolts of healing, and check out this gem.

If you have a passion to see more of the love and power of God in your life and your church, then this book is for you. Randy Clark and Bill Johnson provide a biblically centered guide for the supernatural lifestyle that is the inheritance of every follower of Jesus Christ. Their ministries of healing the sick are evidence that the miracles of First Century Christianity have not come to an end. Pastors Bill and Randy are committed to sharing with the rest of us what God has given them; calling the church back to a ministry of power that draws the hearts of the people to God, heals bodies, and sets people free by the work of the Holy Spirit. I am grateful to them both for their efforts to equip the church for a life of miracles. What is different about this book compared to so many others written about healing ministry is that you can read this book today and begin praying for the sick tomorrow with a keen understanding of the reasons why healing ministry is so important for the present-day church. It contains all you need to get started.

In all my years of study at Fuller Seminary in preparation for ordination in the Presbyterian Church (PCUSA)and in my work for my D.Min., I have seen no one deal with the Scriptures more faithfully than Randy Clark and Bill Johnson. This book is going to have a powerful influence on the Church of Jesus Christ throughout the world for years to come.

For those who have been studying divine healing in the name of Jesus Christ this book is a great asset to understanding how the healing message has developed in these two authors. Their healing style reflects the Vineyard/Toronto approach more than the John G. Lake/Curry Blake or other approaches. I suspect it is a snapshot of where they were at the time of this writing, but will grow even more as we get closer to our model, Jesus, in ministering healing. The format is different chapters by the two authors so you get a slightly different flavor on the topics. Both have been involved in the healing ministry and in training others for healing so the content appears to be directed at what these two experienced workers have learned it takes to get Christians activated in performing this key ministry of Jesus. The book uses much testimony on both how each got started in the divine healing ministry, and how they are now practicing it with individuals to large crusades and groups. The explanation on how critical divine healing is to the Gospel is excellent. They describe how ministers operate in situations with individuals, groups, meetings and crusades. I was glad to see reference to prayer sessions that ran from instant (1-5 minutes) to 20 minutes to 5 hours. The teaching on how to use the word of knowledge with healing is very good.

I cant say enough great things about this book!

It is essential to move in healings. Not simply for the sake of moving in miracles, but because it is a supernatural expression of God's desire to love us in a powerful way. For us to be able to express the love of God in this manner to others, sinners or saints, is one of the greatest honors on the face of the earth. To speak life into deaf ears, sight to blind eyes, and to command the lame to come out of their wheelchairs and walk, is one of the most thrilling expieriences in this life.

In this book, Bill Johnson and Randy Clark do an amazing job of communicating the ease with which this can be accomplished. I have myself grown up in charismatic churches that sadly never moved in this. Always we would pray wrong, asking God what His will was. Since reading this book I have prayed for 4 separate individuals at a homeless outreach in my town and seen 4 different amazing miracles. Freedom from pain from a stroke, a car accident, knee pain, and back pain all happening in a 2 month period of time. 4 healings! That is %400 more than I have ever moved in in my life! haha!

The straight forward way of explaining how to move in this gift and the real life testimonies that can be read are great, but my favorite parts are the insecurity initially displayed by the men moving this and what they did to overcome that. It is encouraging to see such great men of faith be completely honest about the beginnings of their healing ministries.

Thank you so much for this book. If I could give this 10 stars I would. :)

Your thankfully blessed reader, Catlin Collins
