From the Back Cover
God is not just "able" to heal, He is willing! The Lord is gracious and compassionate, and He longs to give you all the blessings of redemption, including physical healing. He is Jehovah–Rapha, the God who heals you (Exodus 15:26).
Why is this blessing of divine healing the source of much confusion in the church? What does the Bible really say about healing? Explore this controversial topic with author F. F. Bosworth as he carefully searches the Scriptures for answers to perplexing questions such as . . .
* Is healing really possible today?
* Is healing for everyone?
* What was Paul's "thorn in the flesh"?
* How is a person supposed to receive healing?
* Can I receive healing?
"Faith begins where the will of God is known," says the author. By understanding God's will for your healing, you can live in the fullness of your salvation in Christ––spirit and body. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

F.F. Bosworth calls the believer back to a simple faith in the word of God especially those promises which pertain to healing. He shows that healing is available to "whosoever will believe" and provides the scripture references and strategies for appropriating healing. He also addresses and soundly dispels the arguements that some in the church community use to discourage a full trust in the provision of healing.
Complete with testimonies of miraculous healings, this book is a must read for anyone needing divine intervention in their physical body as well as for the believer who wants to be able to effectively pray for the sick. If it were mandatory reading for every pastor, the Church would certainly be a more powerful witness to the love and salvation of Christ. Most highly recommended!
Relying solely on the Word of God, Bosworth clearly makes the case for divine healing. Page after page, the evidence mounts until the reader, at some point, relents under the weight of that evidence and says. "I believe!" When Christ suffered and died on the cross, He bought our salvation and our healing, once and for all.
If Smith Wigglesworth were alive and read this text, he would surely exclaim, "Amen!" At any rate, I'm glad Kenneth E. Hagin did read Christ the Healer and pointed me to it.
There are some extras in this edition: 22 Reasons Why Some People Aren't Healed, Testimonies, and Thirty-One Questions about divine healing.
This is more than Christian classic - it is a field manual for daily devotions, warfare and victory.
This book has helped many receive their healing by acting on the truth found within its pages. One of the biggest truths that I took away was the fact that you cannot have faith for something if you do not know God's will on the matter. Without a knowledge of God's will concerning healing or any other matter, you cannot have confidence. Remember, faith is confidence and trust. These two things will never be found where you are ignorant of God's will!
Bosworth goes into great lengths to get this point across and for good reason: it makes the difference as to whether you receive or not.
Bosworth goes into lengthy detail about the Old Testament types and shadows showing conclusively that God provided for our bodily healing through His death, burial and resurrection, and that it is His will for us.
Some believe in a what I'll call a "No-Fault" religion.
They simply pray for healing and if God says "yes" on that particular day, then fine--the prayer is answered. And if not, Que Sera, Sera. Either way, it is not the fault of the person praying. No, this is wrong. Whether or not your prayers are answered depend a whole lot more on you than on God. And Bosworth goes into detail about this subject as well.
If you or a loved one is in need of healing and you need to know whether or not God wants you well, then get this book!
It could make a difference--between your being healed or your continuing in suffering.
