J.D. King, Regeneration: A Complete History of Healing in the Christian Church (Lee’s Summit, MO, Christos, 2017). Volume I, 489 pp., Volume II, 508 pp., Volume III, 414 pp. $ 150.00 hardcover.Regeneration is a massive project, both in scope and page count. Over the course of sixteen years, J.D. King has researched and written a book with an ambitious subtitle: A Complete History of Healing in the Christian Church. King is personally invested in this topic. His own firsthand experience with healing kept him from abandoning the faith (I.9). He conducts his research and writing not only as an academic but also as a practitioner. Academically, he “set out to develop an overview of the healing streams and their associated methodologies” (I.21). This pursuit was motivated by a desire not just to understand, but to “learn to operate similarly” (I.9).Structurally, King follows the narrative of healing chronologically, beginning in the post-Apostolic era and following the theme through two millennia to the ongoing Third Wave movement. In the early chapters, King gives an overview of the church before examining the lives and healing accounts of various key leaders. In the later chapters, he spends more time describing the theological perspective that undergirds the practice of healing.
