An Essential Guide to the Gift of Healing

Ron Phillips

Many believers question how the Holy Spirit’s power actually works in our lives. In An Essential Guide to the Gift of Healing, Ron Phillips explains a facet of this by exploring the gift of healing and providing clear and comprehensive biblical background and support for the practice.

A Spirit-filled Southern Baptist pastor, Phillips brings balance to the topic, examining the many avenues that lead to healing and health. Filled with illustrations from Phillips’ own life and the lives of others, this guide reveals God’s power to touch and heal lives—even today. Though the Bible is filled with miraculous accounts of healing, many believers overlook Christ’s promise that they can do even “greater works than these” (John 14:12). Yet as Phillips contends, the Holy Spirit who activated miracles in the early church is the same Holy Spirit who equips believers today. read more


C.S. Lewis’ ‘Screwtape on Stage’ Wins Critical Acclaim

C.S. Lewis’ unique take on the demonic underworld is experiencing a revival of sorts in theaters across the country. Based on The Screwtape Letters—the 1942 fiction work that elevated the Oxford University professor to celebrity status—Screwtape on Stage features the talents of Max McLean, who portrays the demon Screwtape teaching the novice tempter, Wormwood, by means of letter writing.

Adapted and directed by Jeff Fiske and Max McLean, the presentation from the classic novel by Lewis—also author of “The Chronicles of Narnia” and Mere Christianity—has sold out in multiple cities and was performed more than 300 times at New York City’s West Side Theatre. Told from the senior demon’s point of view, the play features McLean corresponding with Wormwood, a demon in training learning to tempt his “patient” on Earth. God is known as “the enemy” and Satan as “our Father below.” read more


A Place at the Table Chris Seay

When members of Ecclesia Houston tried to identify more closely with the poor through a season of fasting, they found their hunger for community was satisfied. Their 40-day experience is now shared by their pastor, Chris Seay, in A Place at the Table, a six-session DVD small group study based on his similarly titled book, released this month. Rather than a total fast, Seay advocates participants limit their diet to the basic foods those in less affluent parts of the world eat as a way of identifying with their struggles, then giving the money they save to child sponsorship, poverty relief and clean water projects there. While the emphasis of the study is on looking at world issues such as poverty and hunger—“why there is suffering in the midst of our excess”—the series may also encourage people to examine their different appetites for things beyond food.  read more
