Book Review - The Essential Guide to Healing

Wow… is the only way I can think to sum up this book. I really didn’t have high expectations when beginning this book, but I was not disappointed.

Growing up in a full gospel apostolic Pentecostal church during my childhood, I witnessed miraculous healing among other miracles performed… it was just the norm for us.

I never learned how to pray for healing for others, until I read this book!

The majority of this books gives you the background of each of the authors, it gives you, in detail, their first hand experiences of being healed through the power of prayer. It also gives some examples of healing they have witnessed.

They go on to tell you of the research and studies they went through, and the history and background both biblical up to today that supports or denies healing power of prayer.  They give you all the knowledge they obtained throughout the years in a few chapters at the end of the book…  they teach you about Words of Knowledge and the different ways you can receive them. They teach you about how to identify the source of the health issues of individuals so you can know better how to pray for healing, and they give you examples of prayers for each circumstance.

I don’t think there was anything they could have added to this book to make it any better than it is.

I have already passed this new found knowledge on to a dear friend, and I know she will enjoy it as much as I did. I feel as though I am now equipped with the power to make a difference in this world, and in the lives of those around me.

I will definitely pass this book around, and once it has made its pass, I will keep this on my book shelf for future needs.

Also, I need to inform you that I received a copy of this book free from Bethany House in exchange for my honest review… which I have given.
