Product description

Healing ministry is becoming more prominent in many different Christian traditions in Southern Africa. In the past it was largely confined to the 'Spirit-type' African Independent Churches (AICs) - where it was (and still is) a recruitment technique par excellence. For these denominations, healing is central to mission, and the church is primarily seen as a healing institution. In the Western Initiated Churches (WICs), healing was earlier seen as peripheral, but has become more central in recent years. This volume in our series presents four case studies of churches' healing ministries in Zimbabwe, based on the research of Professors Lilian Dube and Tabona Shoko, and synchronized as one work by Dr Stephen Hayes. The case studies examine aspects of healing ministry in four different church communities: the Zvikomborero Apostolic Faith Church; the St Elijah Church; a Roman Catholic church; and an Anglican church.
