Item description for Healing Ministry: A Practical Guide - Rowman & Littlefield by Leo Thomas & Jan Alkire...

Healing Ministry is a significantly revised and expanded presentation of The Healing Team, by the same authors. Some of the changes include reflection questions for each chapter, suggested books that expand on topics covered, a new chapter on spiritual gifts, and further insight from the authors' growth and experience in healing ministry since the first volume was published. This balanced, concise, practical resource is recommended to anyone who ministers to the sick and suffering, or to those interested in forming a healing ministry.

Publishers Description
Dominican priest Leo Thomas applies the wisdom of pastoral care to the ministry of religious healing. He does so with practical, concrete, step-by-step explanations of how to offer healing to those who are hurting. The book's goal is to show Christians lay and ordained, Catholic and Protestant how to minister together in a powerful way so that hurting people can experience the healing love of God who meets them in their need. The end of each chapter contains reflection questions to help readers bring healing into their own lives while deepening their spirituality. Also included are chapter summaries and a list of recommended resources that expand upon the subjects covered."

Reviews - What do customers think about Healing Ministry: A Practical Guide?

MUST READ FIRST!  Apr 27, 2000
From a former student of the Institute for Christian Ministries who will always be learning thanks to books like HEALING MINISTRY.

This is an absolute must-read-first book if anyone is thinking about prayer ministry either as one to be prayed for or one who desires to be a prayer team partner. For many the term "healing ministry" conjures up some pretty interesting images. I found HEALING MINISTRY to be engaging, insightful, and simply written as though the reader was sitting in front of the authors in conversation. "Further Readings" gave me a seemingly endless supply of more to soak up. The exersices were stimulating, enriching, thought provoking, and I believe I have become a more mature Christian having done them. A very valuable lesson for me was to learn how we all are ministers in our every day lives. The authors successfully conveyed that the Cycle of Ministry they wrote about is comforting and healing for all participants, and if used as a practical guide there will always be the ever-loving presence of God in ministry.

Thank you Father Leo and Jan Alkire!

A well written, inspiring book  Apr 20, 2000
This book was the first I had read in the "religious/spiritual" genre, and it has inspired me to not only read more books like it (including the other by the same authors), but made me a believer in the power of prayer and spiritual healing. This book is very well written book. It is not "preachy" as many spiritual books can be. I was surprised and impressed by it. For anyone searching in their lives for healing (physical, spiritual, or otherwise), this is a great place to start learning about healing and healing ministry.
