This volume is a masterful analysis and criticism of the most recent manifestations of charismatic phenomena…The exposition of James 5.13-14 is excellent, and his analysis of the place of the mind in the Christian's experience is remarkable. The concluding chapter by a medical doctor is also insightful…This is one of the best books on this subject today. It should be widely read by concerned Christian people of all theological persuasions. --Bibliotheca Sacra
The basis of Masters' appeal is refreshingly biblical. In contrast, he debunks much of the subjective nature of the charismatic claims as publicised by individual 'healers', together with their stress on healing meetings. This book is well written. Its message is sorely needed. --British Church Newspaper
