Healing in the Early Church
The Church's Ministry of Healing and Exorcism from the First to the Fifth Century
Imprint: Wipf and Stock
"Andrew Dauton-Fear presents an exhaustive and factual collection of evidence for the early church's ministries of healing and exorcism in the context of practices in Paganism and Judaism. His appendix 'Some Pointers for Today's Church' offers sober and practical applications. The result is a valuable addition to the literature on the early church and in the relation of Christianity to health care."
- Everett Fergusson, Distinguished Scholar in Residence, Abilene Christian University
"Healing in the Early Church is a scholarly and readable book for our time. The insights it contains will help us to recover the lessons learnt by the early church and apply them to the emerging church of today as a normal and effective part of its mission to build the kingdom of God within our broken and fragmented world."
-Russ Parker, Director, Acorn Christian Healing Foundation
"This is a very welcome high-quality study which deserves a wide readership in circles far beyond the reach of patristic studies, not least, we might hope, in that Majority World where increasingly the center of gravity of global Christianity resides."
- David F. Wright, Professor Emeritus of Patristic and Reformed Christianity, University of Edinburgh
