Have you ever prayed for a sick friend?
Does God heal today? If so, why are so many people in pain around us? We have all heard stories of miraculous healings. But can we believe them? Why are some people healed and some not? Does God give ordinary Christians the authority to heal?
As Ken Blue explores these questions he found plenty of answers, but none that satisfied him. He wanted answers that were true to Scripture and true to a loving and just God. His search into the Bible and into the ministry of healing has produced a rich and very human book.
Here is a book for everyone who has ever prayed for a sick friend.
