In this landmark, thought-provoking book, a physician and theologian investigates whether disincarnate spirits, or the souls of deceased persons, can provide us help in healing.
This book is intended to provide the information necessary to answer the question of whether disincarnate spirits, or the souls of deceased persons, can provide us help in healing, such as in the ministry of spiritual healing and in the practice of energy medicine. It assesses the extent of Biblical support for physicalism, the belief that we are purely physical beings, and dualism, the belief that we are physical beings who have an immortal soul, or incarnated spirit. It considers how Christianity has attempted to resolve the issue of physicalism versus dualism, and how the near-death experience (NDE) has become a real-life challenge to physicalism by indicating the existence of disincarnate spirits. It describes what is currently known about the nature of disincarnate spirit existence and how disincarnate spirits would help us heal by working on our subtle energy body. And it gives many examples of this help being provided in the remarkable healing ministries of Harry Edwards (1893-1976) and John of God (1942- ).
Rev. Dr. Busby received his M.D. (cum laude) and M.Sc. (in biophysics) from the University of Western Ontario, and became a board-certified specialist in Aerospace Medicine. Eventually he turned back to his second career choice, Christian ministry, and received his M.Div. from the Chicago Theological Seminary and his D.Min. and Ph.D. from the Graduate Theological Foundation. He has had a life-long interest in spiritual healing, which for the past 15 years has included a personal study of the healing ministry of the Brazilian Spiritist healer, John of God. Currently he preaches, lectures and writes on and provides support for spiritual healing.
