Absolutely. But Porterfield pulls it off admirably"--Publishers Weekly"Porterfield proves that healing is a central theme in Christian history, and is a fascinating lens through which to examine the Christian faith. Indeed, she has produced not just a history of healing in Christianity, but a history of Christianity itself."--Publishers Weekly"This wide-ranging survey is unusually even-handed in its treatment of a difficult and controversial subject. In particular, Porterfield is entirely persuasive in arguing that healing--as a multi-faceted response to suffering and evil--has been at the heart of Christian practice from the time of Jesus to the present. Her sensitive treatments of the large place of healing in Christian missions and in the recent world expansion of Christianity are especiallywelcome."--Mark A. Noll, author of America's God: From Jonathan Edwards to Abraham Lincoln"In these days of medical miracles and double-blind tests of intercessory prayer, Amanda Porterfield provides a welcome introduction to the 2,000-year-old history of Christianity and healing. Ranging from Galilee to Lourdes (and beyond), she investigates the intriguing world of angels and demons and boldly explores the biological bases of spiritual healing."--Ronald L. Numbers, Hilldale and William Coleman Professor of the History of Science and Medicine,Department of Medical History and Bioethics, University of Wisconsin"In an era newly attentive to the relationship between religion and health, this striking analysis of Christianity as a religion of healing offers insights deeply informed by imaginative research, breadth of scope, and clarity of argument. Beginning with the texts of the New Testament and concluding with the healers and hospital builders of the late twentieth century, Amanda Porterfield provides a skillful description of the manifold ways that Christians haveengaged in practices of healing for the past two thousand years. The book is an eye-opener." -- E. Brooks Holifield, author of Theology in America: Christian Thought from the Age of the Puritans to the Civil War"This book represents a singularly important contribution to the study of the history of Christianity. With sparkling prose, Porterfield shows that Christianity, from the beginning to the present, and in all parts of the world, has concerned itself with the healing of broken bodies. The scope of the story Porterfield tells, and the richness of the documents she consults, establish a standard of excellence for all future studies of the subject."--Grant A.Wacker, author of Heaven Below: Early Pentecostals and American Culture.
