Chapter Summary

While Bosworth, Hagin, Sanford, and MacNutt alike acknowledge the value of divine healing for the advancement of God's Kingdom and give a prominent place to it in their ministry, differences among them can be detected as to how they frame their ministry of healing and how broad are their horizons respectively. Bosworth throughout his life-time of service as well as Hagin, at least in his early years of ministry, viewed divine healing as an evangelistic tool of an immense caliber. Sanford and MacNutt, for their part, are not known for evangelistic crusades. Instead, they devoted themselves to ministry of healing in a more intimate setting of workshops and one-on- one counseling. Unlike the pastoral ministers of healing, Bosworth and Hagin exhibit little awareness of events in the world or social and cultural trends. Salvation of the soul and healing of the body remains for them a steady double-focus.
