Book by Cassel, Anne
This is a classic book on Christian healing - the journey from contempt to curiosity to faith. The reluctant Healer, published after Emily Gardiner Neal's death but started while she was alive, is a compendium of chapters and passages from several of her books connected together by a brief but enlightening narrative. The journey begins when Emily, then a freelance reporter in New York City, is asked by a neighbor in her apartment building for a ride to a church service near by. It turns out the neighbor's child is gravely ill, and Emily politely obliges, then finds a parking space and wanders into the church service. There she witnesses what appear to be healing miracles. Quizzical and skeptical, she contacts a doctor friend who confirms what she has seen, and admits that there are is "unexplained" healing than doctors like to think possible. Wife of a business executive, articulate and well educated, she is not witness to some circus tent healer or evangelistic showmanship - rather, quiet but sincere prayer and real physical transformation.

So she digs deeper and her life changes. Reluctantly, she herself becomes a healer - not someone with supernatural powers, but someone dedicated to teaching others about the healing power of faith and the healing miracles of Jesus Christ.

Today, her ministry lives on in this book, and in the Episcopal Healing Ministry Foundation in Cincinnati, Ohio. The foundation has documented all the homilies she delivered while in retirement residence there. www.episcopalhealing.org
Emily Gardiner Neal is not a household name today. The healing ministry of which she was a part has been eclipsed by various movements not as traditional in the Episcopal Church. Though of the same denomination as the better-known Agnes Sanford, she was much more traditional in her approach to healing, emphasizing the role of the church and its healing ministry. In favor of the church's current romance with abortion and gays, her work and others like it have faded. Still, for those who are interested in God's healing, there is a great deal upon which to ponder.
The book, though listed as used, is in excellent condition and I am very happy with it! I have my own copy of this book, but I order it to give a copy to others.
An excellent book. Devotional.
