Chapter Summary

The ministers of divine healing in focus, especially Bosworth, Hagin, and Sanford, teach that for healing to take place, certain conditions on the part of the seeker of healing must be fulfilled. Those conditions can be summed up in two words: faith and repentance. True, healing can occur through the manifestation of the gift of healing granted as the Holy Spirit wills irrespective of the spiritual condition of the seeker. Nevertheless, this is believed to constitute an exception to the rule. Even in such extraordinary cases, faith and repentance must follow lest the recipient of healing forfeits what he or she received. The chapter evaluates MacNutt's view of faith and healing in greater detail, after his method of "soaking prayer" has been explained.
