Show Summary Details


This chapter examines the proliferation of the meanings and modes of Christian healing within Anglican and United Churches. It explains that this proliferation of healing brought with it an intensified supernatural liberalism that celebrated ritual and spiritual innovation, while also prompting charges of heresy and appropriation. It discusses Anglican syncretism, energy sacramentalism, and religious difference in globalized Christianity.
