Chapter Summary

The four protagonists, in this chapter, proclaim the living and compassionate God who revealed his nature in Jesus' ministry to the sick and who is ready to demonstrate his love and faithfulness even today. Their emphasis on divine benevolence coupled with their lack of appreciation for the Old Testament, however, makes them forget that the biblical God also dispenses affliction. Satan is the ultimate foe for Bosworth, Hagin, Sanford, and MacNutt. Finally, in terms of the overarching inquiry whether the healing evangelists can be grouped together and contrasted with the pastoral ministers of healing, it can be concluded that in their theology proper and anthropology the dividing line is drawn based on their adherence to certain New Thought tenets or lack thereof. Sanford's theology is akin to Hagin's due to their shared inspiration in New Thought, whereas Bosworth and MacNutt do not succumb to New Thought influences.
