Conversations and Insights from Two Veteran Healing Leaders
by Bill Johnson and Randy Clark
Publisher:Baker Publishing Group (BPG)
Published:22 June 2012
If you are looking for a guide to the healing ministry, this is not the book for you, try the authors' other joint publication, The Essential Guide to Healing instead. However, if you want to be inspired, encouraged and mentored in you own healing ministry, then this is the book for you.
Bill has thirty-seven years of ministry behind him and Randy has forty and each has a global healing ministry bearing prodigious fruit. Yet they are both searingly honest and humble in the way in which they share their struggles and failures. This results in a very 'real' and empowering tool which is accessible to all.
Their chosen format is that of an interview, each interviewing the other, and was originally intended as a DVD project to help train people in the healing ministry. As a result, reading this book is rather like being the fly on the wall as two old friends share the many aspects of their years in the healing ministry.
For me, one of the most helpful and empowering aspects of this book was the fresh insight it gave me on the place of faith in the healing ministry. To quote Bill, (p. 87)
"In some ways, faith that moves mountains is not what you believe God can do, it's what you expect he's about to do."
Healing Unplugged not only inspired, empowered and mentored me, it also took me on a spiritual journey as I believe it will all those who read it with a heart open to the Lord.
