About The Author
He graduated from Nottingham University in 1969 and qualified as a chartered civil engineer, leading to a varied working career, which included building roads and bridges in the Highlands of Scotland and, in the early 1980’s, overseeing the construction of new town development in the New Territories area of Hong Kong. It was here that a huge personal change of direction occurred when he gave his life to Jesus.
Returning to Scotland, David became very active in church life and in leading ski tours in the Cairngorm Mountains. In order to further the Christian healing ministry in the Highlands, as an elder in the Church of Scotland, he and others in the local church made contact with Ellel Ministries in 1991, and two years later David and his wife Denise joined the Ministry at the international headquarters of Ellel Grange, near Lancaster.
David and Denise have three children and eight grandchildren, all giving much joy in the midst of very busy lives. Besides the thrill of sharing God's truth through teaching and writing, David loves walking and photography. His authoritative explanation of God's word has brought understanding and healing to many who have been confused and damaged by the ungodly ideologies of today's world. David has written four other books: Soul-Ties, God’s Covering, Trapped by Control and A-Z Guide to the Healing Ministry.
- A very valuable book.Review by Sparklingcolour
They believe that a Christian takes themself outside of God's protection when they do things like this and their bottom line is that the practice of some of these therapies can give a foothold for non-Christian spiritual powers to influence the person's life in an unhelpful way. It also has a chapter that goes step by step through what you can do about it (for yourself or someone else), with some example prayers.
Sections include: Is there a life force? Where does the power to heal come from? Who is the founder (this is answered for a number of therapies, and often the founder was heavily into the occult). What if the practitioner is Christian? The difference between a therapist and a medium. Healing the body or the spirit.
I like the style which is quiet and respectful, yet pulls quite a punch. There is a useful checklist of questions to ask about a therapy, remedy or exercise regime, to see whether it may have adverse spiritual side effects.
A very valuable book. (Posted on 29/09/2016)
