About:

Foundational Teaching from a Charismatic Healing Minister and a Catholic Scholar

International healing minister Randy Clark teams up with Mary Healy, a respected Catholic scholar, to show not only that the gifts of the Spirit still exist today, but that they are not optional; they are the necessary tools God has given for both building his Church and spreading the Gospel.

With wisdom and practical insight, Clark and Healy walk you through biblical texts, dispel misconceptions, and show that there is an endless variety of gifts. They also show how the gifts are not just for a select few, but distributed freely by the Holy Spirit among believers. After laying this foundation, the authors reveal how you can activate the gifts in your own life and use them to benefit others. In this hurting world, you can give people more than just a message–you can help usher them into an encounter with God.

My thoughts:

This book was a good reminder of the gifts of the Spirit. It honestly wasn’t new information for me but I did find it interesting.

What I found most interesting was that fact that the Catholic church believes in these gifts. I had no idea. I think a lot of us (maybe I should just speak for myself) have misconceptions and even prejudices toward the Catholic church. One of the authors is Catholic, I loved reading her stories of healing and miracles and I felt the divide that had been created by years of untruth begin to close.

This book wasn’t what I was expecting but like I said, I did like it and it was a great reminder of the power that is available to to us all.

Practical Insight on Praying for the Sick from Two Bestselling Authors

If you could sit down and talk privately with two world-renowned leaders in healing ministry–away from the spotlights, stages, and eager crowds–this is the conversation you would have!

Bestselling authors Randy Clark and Bill Johnson witness the miraculous regularly and see thousands touched by God each year. Now, in a rare behind-the-scenes format, these close friends interview each other, sharing with you the heartbreaks and victories, the failures and successes, the personal and candid insights into their extraordinary journeys. With honesty and humor, Clark and Johnson reveal
· how they first heard God’s call
· the hard-learned lessons that propelled them forward
· the most amazing miracles each has witnessed
· detailed strategies for more effective ministry
· and much more

These real-life reflections from two soldiers on the front lines of healing ministry will inspire your own obedience to God’s voice, your deeper faith that God is at work, and your trust in his power to bring the answers you need.

My thoughts:

Yeah, these two men are so inspiring. There is no way you can read this book and not want what they have, what Jesus has. This book will rock your world.

This book didn’t start out that way, it was supposed to only be a DVD but they decided to put it in book format and I am so grateful they did.

I wasn’t sure how I would like the format of an interview but I was easy caught up in Billy and Randy sharing their stories of healing and the format of interviewing didn’t matter at all

I love what Bill said in one chapter, “…action releases faith.” I so believe that. Sometimes we have to move and that will release our faith. Sometimes we have to raise our hands, get out of the pew.

This book has reminded me of what I really am missing in my faith, things that the world has pushed out in the busyness of life. I want to get back to that faith? How about you?
