Item description for Jesus the Healer: Paradigm or Unique Phenomenon? by Keith Warrington...
Overview Offering an assessment of some contemporary practitioners against the backdrop of a close analysis of the accounts in the gospels of Jesus' ministry of healing and exorcism, this challenging work adds to an arena of growing interest and controversy among Christians.
Publishers Description Jesus chose to heal and exorcise in order to teach. Through them he taught about himself and his mission. As a result of them his would be followers were guided concerning important aspects of their lives. He taught the crowds the disciples and the religiously minded. He ruffled religious feathers, he astonished the milling crowds, he clashed with demons, and he made the hearts of the expectant leap. The healing ministry of Jesus is still an enigma to many who want to believe it is valid, but who recognize the significant difference between the best of healing today and the unique ministry of Jesus. God still heals, but does Jesus gift believers with His unique power?

A Needed Fresh View on Pentecostal Healing Jan 22, 2009
Keith Warrington is a first class Pentecostal theologian that is Vice Principal and Director of Doctoral Studies at Regents Theological College in Cheshire, United Kingdom.
Dr. Warrington addresses the Pentecostal issue of why there are so few miraculous healings. He carefully examines each of Jesus' healings and exorcisms by analyzing Christ's purpose in each. Additionally, his arguments carefully refute the Word of Faith movement positions.
This is a book that has been long needed by traditional Pentecostals. His articulation of the issues shows how to better put into words Pentecostal healing practices. Although it is written in a scholarly manner, it is readable for the typical college graduate. I highly recommend this book for people that desire to study healing in the Gospels, answer the question of why there are so few healings, and address the issues raised by the Word of Faith movement.
