Format: Paperback
This is not a splashy, sensational account of testimonies to
healing. Testimonies there are, but Wimbers excellent handling
of the subject of healing is presented, not as evidence of the
insights and abilities of Wimber, but, as Richard Foster
comments in the Introduction, as a reminder "that at the very heart of
God is the desire to give and forgive. [This] book encourages
us to believe that God is good and that he desires to pour out his
goodness into our hearts and lives." (p. xi)

It would be difficult to recommend a more biblically-based
book on healing that is also as practical and honest.

This would be one of the best books in the area of healing and deliverence. In the early Pentecostal days with lots of healings and deliverance taking place, what came lacking was the theology to healing and deliverance, and John Wimber wrote Power Healing at a time where a strong renewal theology in healing and deliverance was needed. This is not a book like those you get from the "Word of Faith" movements. This book is solidly grounded on the Word of God, not denying the reality of life, but faces them head on. This book deals with some very difficult issues, e.g. "Can Christians be demon possessed?" and "Why are all not healed?"

I appreciate John's humility in writing this book, not as an expert, but as a practitioner discovering the heart of God in this subject matter. John wrote candidly and also the struggles he faced, and I believe you would be able to identify very much with what he wrote. I am most inspired by his perseverence and tenacity in praying for people to be healed. He began the healing ministry with no one getting healed for 10 months (how many of us would have given up already) but he pressed on believing in God's redemptive heart, of which healing is part of it all. Through his journey and discovery, he writes this book like a primer to the ministry of healing and deliverance, and this is a must read for anyone venturing into this area.

POWER HEALING by John Wimber is a powerhouse book. He explores, in detail, the ministry of divine healing and tackles the tough questions; such as what happens when a person is not instantly healed. What are the causes, conditions and ramifications? Such was the fate of his own heart condition and an illness which took his good friend.

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:

The Interview
Diagnostic Decision
Prayer Selection
Prayer Engagement
Post-Prayer Directions

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.

He loves you and wants you healed! Books like this will build up your faith and get you started. More advanced: "The Power of Divine: A Healer's Guide" by Tiffany Snow and "Hands of Light" by Derek Prince.

John Wimber was a man who affected his generation. He loved the Lord and accepted healing as part of the atonement. He not only presents what he believes from a biblically sound perspective but he also went ahead and gave testimonies of healings that he witnessed. Only other authors this good on the subject might be F.F. Bosworth or Smith Wigglesworth.

I love John Wimber's fresh and candid approach to the Christian walk. As one person said, "Read the red and do what He said." This describes Wimber. When reading his writings I experience him as transparent and unpretentious...human. I can relate to and learn from someone like that.

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.

Great book on healing from John Wimber. Covers many aspects of healing, including emotional and gives lots of examples of actual healings the Lord did thru John. Part I - why does Jesus heal?, Part II - what does Jesus heal?, Part III - how does Jesus heal? Appendix includes scriptures showing the healing ministry of Jesus & disciples. For a more current book, get Randy Clark's book, the essential guide to healing.
