Visions and healing in the Acts of the Apostles
How the early believers experienced God
AUTHOR John J Pilch
Pilch examines religious ecstatic trance experiences and healing events reported in the Acts. He applies insights from the social sciences, namely cultural anthropology, cognitive neuro-science, and medical anthropology to the interpretation of these events. This interdisciplinary book will help the reader gain appreciation of our ancestors’ faith and the power of Scripture and liturgy.
