The classic history of healing in the Christian church from biblical times to the present. I found it to be one of the most illuminative books written on healing. Kelsey presents a comprehensive view of the subject, from Hellenistic practices to contemporary ones. Although largely based upon Christian concepts (unfortunately overlooked by contempory mental health), Kelsey also weaves in material from other philosophic and academic traditions. While there are many quasi-spiritual books on the market today, most present half-baked notions of healing and do not even come close to what Kelsey has written.

I was disappointed in this book. While it addresses a variety of classical issues related to healing, it doesn't address the key question most hurting and ill people ask: Why didn't God prevent my problems in the first place. The prose is also stilted, making the reading work instead of joy.

A must read for anyv educated person in terested in christianity or healing and how the history of these goes together. Is it easier to forgive sins or heal??
TheMoonix
Excellent resource
Asher
The author is knowledgeable about the subject and also provide many useful links for further understanding on the topic. It is also written very simply for the ordinary person in the pews.
Mikarr
A excellent historical exposition of God's enduring grace of responding with the gift of healing for His people.
Beazerdred
Excellent overview by a scholar from the Episcopal as well as Christian perspective. Not at all dated.

Å verythorough and good book about healing. Å must.
Kelsey's review of healing in the history of Christianity was excellent. I greatly appreciated his tour through the apostolic church, early church Fathers and the comparison between the early church's relationship to healing and that of the mideival and Reformation church's. His treatment of the historical place of healing is top-notch and makes this book a worthy read by anyone interested in Christian healing. Kelsey shows how healing has gone from being a central act of the church to being perceived as contrary to God's use of sickness as a tool for punishment, discipline and penance. The church then anoints people for death rather than healing. Kelsey shows the inconguity of this approach to sickness with the gospel and early church. This is an important book to reform the church's view and practice of healing. When Kelsey was writing this book, his emphasis on the relationship between body, soul and Spirit was more innovative than it is now. His assertions are still welcome.

Kelsey then takes what I consider a tangent from the stream of the book that is healings place in Christianity. He spends considerable time on the views of Carl Jung and then concludes the book with attempting to synthesize Jung's philosophy with Christian healing. This latter third of the book devoted to Jung seemed off-path and even misguided. In it, Jung is the center and focus rather than God or Christian teaching. Many would consider Jung at odds with Christianity (see The Healing Presence: Curing the Soul Through Union with Christ). Despite this section of the book, Kelsey's work is recommended.
