Writing about why people don't get healed, he is honest and direct. He writes, "There is another reason - I believe the most fundamental reason - why more people are not healed when prayed for today. We do not seek God as wholeheartedly as we should."
From lessons of decades of ministry around the world, Wimber blends his personal experiences with scripture and principles of healing. Understanding the basis for divine healing as well as the authority for it, impediments and prayer techniques can result in people being healed more often. His insights are extremely valuable to both the person praying and the one seeking healing.
One of the most interesting aspects of the book was the procedure he recommends for praying for the sick; a five step process:
Wimber is not purely formulaic, however, as he writes with passion, clarity and power. But there are techniques which can help make the ministry more effective. These he shares freely. Wimber tackles difficult topics including demonic forces, spiritual warfare, speaking in tongues and spiritual gifts.
Whether the reader needs healing or is working in this ministry, Power Healing is a must-read.
The title is slightly deceiving and I have been historically only the skeptic in regards to this topic, but this book is solid. What I thought was going to be a book on questionable charismatic healing, was one of faith and a new understanding o the Holy Spirit. Read it as a part of a prayer small group and it wrecked us all. Gave some clear tangibles to a mysterious and often weird topic. Changed the way I pray and think about Spiritual matters. Think some of the biblical passages were a bit of an unnecessary hermeneutical stretch, and more sound arguments could have been made, but overall grade A.
I was struggling with some of the theology of healing I was being exposed to. I especially appreciated how John candidly relayed his own early struggles with divine healing. He leads the reader -- he doesn't drag the reader. I felt like he was relaying my own intellectual and spiritual struggles. I still don't have all of my questions answered, but I feel more comfortable with what I do believe after reading this book.
The book by John Wimber is a powerful theological reflection on his journey and the Biblical subject of healing. In discussing his journey from one who preached and stood directly against Devine healing (due to the excess at times seen)to a life that was used by God to heal through training others to be used by God in the same way. He is a credible thinker and solid in his approach on the subject. He even brings up the vantage points that would normally be dismissive to this component to the gospel. Two thumbs way up. For further reading on different subjects consider some deeper theological works like Roger Stronstad and of course Ray Anderson.
