Description

Examines the phenomena of the growth, in African Christianity, of churches and sects offering healing. The aim of the text is to present an understanding from medical, psychological, cultural, socio-economic, philosophical and theological perspectives. Starting with a description of religious healing, the text develops a theological model within which the experience can be articulated in terms of the Church's mission to heal. It does this using the theological notion of inculturation.
