Publishers Description This practical guide to spiritual healing blends insightful spiritual reflection and the wisdom of hard-won experience in a reliable and inspiring handbook for developing our innate capacity for richer living and richer giving through the healing gifts of the Spirit.Many years ago, Agnes Sanford was cured of acute depression by a minister who believed in the healing power of prayer. Subsequently, she herself became very active and successful in healing others of mental and physical ailments by drawing upon the same resources for inner well-being. In The Healing Gifts of the Spirit, she shares the simple, practicable ways of self-help she discovered, and gives step-by-step advice on how to help others.She discusses not only her own cure but also the gift of healing in general and its growing recognition in the contemporary church. She devotes a chapter to the gift of miracles, and another -- especially interesting -- to the gift of tongues. Her exploration of these topics is richly inspiring, offering readers one of the most detailed, informative discussions of the nature, dynamics, and potential rewards of these unique manifestations of God's presence. At the same time, she demonstrates how anyone can draw upon this healing power for good in the world.As evidence of how these gifts can -- and do -- reveal themselves, the author cites many examples from observation and personal encounters with the healing power of the Spirit.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Healing Gifts of the Spirit?
A most insightful book on charisms and inner healing Jun 20, 1999
Agnes Sanford was an Episcopal lay woman, married to an Episcopal priest. She has been active in the Church in the area of healing way before the charismatic renewal set in. In this book she explains how the charisms of 1Cor.12 can be used specifically for inner healing. At the same time she also explains them in such a way that they can be used for spiritual growth as well. Special attention is given to depression. Agnes knows the depth of mental suffering, and knows a way out too! In her defence it must be said that she cannot be connected to New Age or other forms of occultism. in this book, she gives a very usefull presentation of discerning the spirits, and also a useful presentation of deliverance from evil spirits! Agnes stands with both her feet in the christian tradition, and is a great inspiration for christian living, a great teacher, and in my opinion a saint as well. She has effectively changed my life for the better, given me a better understanding of the nature of God, and His salvation. Agnes gives a way to live the sacramental life fully integrated with a charismatic spirituality. Yet non-sacramental churches (like Pentecostals and Evangelicals)can also benefit greatly from this woman of God. I say this as a former Pentecostal, who is now a (charismatic) Roman Catholic!
What a pleasure to support this book! Oct 17, 1998
Although not a recent publication, the message is timeless. A Catholic woman discovers healing abilities and helps many people. She reveals these skills wonderfully so one may walk away feeling empowered to practice healing too! Although she poo poos the New Age, we're doing the same thing....I am a REIKI Master and I think Agnes is where I got my first training. Bless her! God's Light cannot be contained in a doctrine!
