The Best Author on Healing besides the Bible Mar 4, 2007
I have to say, Lillian yeomans found God when she was on her death bed and I am SO SO happy she wrote this book. Turn your face to God, and you WILL be healed. She has witnessed it in 100's if not thousands of people in her medical practice as well as otherwise. She was a doctor, she treated with medicine, but she herself found herself completely ransacked with a drug addiction that no doctor could treat, except for DOCTOR GOD. GREAT BOOK< GREAT AUTHOR!
Bad Theology Feb 21, 2007
I quit this book at page 58, in Chapter 7 of the first volume. I'm going to throw it away. I don't want to even try to sell it, because I don't want to be responsible for passing this kind of theology on to others.
The author seems to be a proponent of the classic "If you have enough faith, God will heal you" theology. And Chapter 7 is basically saying "Forget about doctors and medicine - God doesn't use them." I rejected that kind of thinking long ago. I believe it's simplistic and immature at best, and can do tremendous harm at worst.
1. God does heal, or I wouldn't even have started reading the book. In fact, I suspect we could see more of His healing power if we'd meet his conditions, including increased faith. Ultimately, it's His will to heal every believer. However, healing isn't always for this life, and even when it is, sometimes the wait is very long. He has his purpose in suffering. To suggest that a lack of faith is always behind a lack of healing is wrong and cruel.
2. He heals in many ways, including through doctors and medicine. The fact that these don't always work doesn't invalidate that. Yeomans makes a big issue about how God didn't use ancient pagan medicine for healing. But compared to today, even the most advanced medicine back then was no doubt primitive, and probably also laced with forbidden occult practices.
3. Some of her logic is flawed, and she seems to ignore certain things in the Bible. In saying that God didn't use doctors and medicine, for example, she ignores the story of the Good Samaritan, who used salves, and then left the victim at an inn to be cared for while recuperating.
To be fair, the author does offer some interesting points here and there. Overall, however, I don't think it's worth my time to read the entire book just for those tidbits.
