Over the last twenty years there has been a great surge of interest in the healing ministry, yet this ferment of activity seems not to have been matched by an equally fresh or energetic study of healing in the New Testament, which ostensibly forms the basis, and is still claimed as supplying the inspiration for the 'revival' of this ministry. This work is the first, serious, critical study of healing in the New Testament as a discrete subject. Its purpose is to arrive at a clearer understanding of what Scripture actually tells us about healing; not what we imagine it says or hope that it might say, not what we may have been led to believe it says, nor indeed what we have sometimes been taught that it says, but what the sacred authors actually wrote, and more to the point, what they meant by what they wrote.
