Item description for Healing in the Landscape of Prayer by Avery Brooke...
Overview The ministry of healing prayer goes back to our deepest roots, to Jesus of Nazareth, who cared for those suffering in body and in spirit. As his followers, you are challenged - and empowered - to do the same. Author Avery Brooke tells the surprising story of healing prayer in her own life and with that of her church in Connecticut. With clarity and thoroughness, she traces the history of healing prayer, examining it as part of the larger "landscape of prayer." This book provides a foundation - and a wealth of practical information - for clergy and lay people to explore healing prayer in their own lives and parishes.

Reviews - What do customers think about Healing in the Landscape of Prayer?
EXCELLENT Mar 28, 2010
This is an excellent introductory text that emphasizes the ministry of healing as one of the primary works of the church and the believer. It traces the history of healing as an artifact of baptism and provides a glimpse from the early chuch in which physical healing occurred to later developments in which spiritual healing was emphasized. The author, through her own experience, encourages others to claim this important ministry in their own lives, in healing prayers for others, and in binding the works of the unholy one in restoring people to health.
One of my favorite books Jan 29, 2010
I am almost finished with this little book, which will surely affect my life in big ways. A wonderful guide for those interested in healing prayer and/or healing touch.
