Holiness denominations at the turn of the twentieth century were characterized by three teachings: sanctification, divine healing, and dispensational views of the second coming.
Faith Cure explores the divine healing movement between 1870 and 1920, examining its practitioners, its cultural milieu, its biblical and theological foundations, and its results. Hardesty concludes with a discussion of spiritual healing today and its connection with the broader cultural search for alternative medicines.
Nancy A. Hardesty is professor of religion at Clemson University. She is the author of six books, including Women Called to Witness: Evangelical Feminism in the Nineteenth Century, "Your Daughters Shall Prophesy": Revivalism and Feminism in the Age of Finney, and Great Women of Faith.
