Book:  The Ministry of Healing

Author: AJ Gordon

Genre:  Christian non-fiction, spiritual growth

Release Date: January 17, 2020

Ministry of Healing CoverClassic Christian author A. J. Gordon expresses curiosity about whether the healing miracles from the Middle Ages up to his day can be verified as a continuation of Christ’s Spirit in the church. Through deep study and inquiry of the established history, Gordon concludes that the power to heal followers remains with the church—there was no special era of miracle working. God and His powers remain the same in the modern era as they have right through human history. For Gordon, God’s intervention in the suffering and sickness of His followers is frequent; the will of the Lord however is variable—but He will not prolong the pain of someone whose illness is too great. Throughout this text, A. J. Gordon makes his argument from a biblical perspective, citing passages in both the Old and New Testament that support the continuation of spiritual gifts. Quoting testimonies of believers across the ages, he offers a convincing argument that the church ministry is, to this day, one of healing.

The Ministry of Healing is a detailed and in-depth look into the Biblical basis for healing after the times of the apostles.  This book is meant to be studied and not rushed through.  Some people may find the book dry and at times hard to follow.

My husband was a Primitive Baptist deacon when we first met.  Then shortly after we were married he was ordained as a preacher.  Many times through the years, I have watched my husband and his father and grandfather go out to various homes to pray for them. While praying, they frequently anointed the people with oil as a way of connecting more meaningfully with God.  So I loved reading that section.

I recommend you check out this book for yourself.

I received a copy of this book for my fair and honest review.

 

About the Author

Adoniram_Judson_GordonAdoniram Judson (A. J.) Gordon (1836–1895) came to prominence in the United States as the evangelical pastor of Clarendon Street Baptist Church in Boston for more than twenty-five years. During his tenure there, he saw the church completely transformed into one of the most spiritual and aggressive churches in America, with an unsurpassed effort in missions. A missionary training school and publishing house were associated with the church, and Gordon preached at many of D. L. Moody’s Northfield Conferences, along with other notable preachers such as A. B. Simpson, A. T. Pierson, and R. A. Torrey. His training school eventually became Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary, in South Hamilton, Massachusetts. He also founded Gordon College, in Wenham, Massachusetts. He wrote his most famous book, The Ministry of Healing, in 1882, but he also wrote at least fifteen hymns, including “My Jesus, I Love Thee,” as well as other books of Christian instruction.
