Designed for use in churches wishing to begin or revive a healing ministry, In His Name is a deliberately hands-on course. Although it is careful to build a proper foundation in terms of both theology and good practice, the emphasis is on equipping the participants to engage in an active ministry of healing. Fully illustrated and containing ice-breakers, practical exercises, group prayer times and many real life stories of healing, In His Name is deliberately written to be easy to use. First published in 2008 and now on its third printing, it has been widely used in local churches and is the recommended course in a number of Anglican dioceses.

“Far and away the most balanced, informed, practical guide for church healing teams. The authors have seen much healing – physical, psychological and spiritual, and have the theological and biblical underpinning to ground it. The course is interactive, beautifully written and has been tested over ten years. Simply invaluable” – Canon Dr Michael Green“Following on from the open evening we ran the ‘In His Name’ course and had over forty participants, which attracted participants from other local churches and was widely spoken of it as one of the best things St Paul’s had ever done” – Revd Chris Spittle, Skelmersdale, Lancashire
