Examines the phenomena of the growth, in African Christianity, of churches and sects offering healing. The aim of the text is to present an understanding from medical, psychological, cultural, socio-economic, philosophical and theological perspectives. Starting with a description of religious healing, the text develops a theological model within which the experience can be articulated in terms of the Church's mission to heal. It does this using the theological notion of inculturation.
