Craig Keener: He Still Heals


Craig S. Keener, “He Still Heals” Charisma (August 2010), pages 52-55.

Have you experienced a miraculous healing?

This brief article contains reports of significant healings and miracles from around the world, including: the Republic of Congo, Sri Lanka, and the Philippines. Among the miracles mentioned are people being raised from the dead, something Craig Keener has come across more than 150 cases of. Some of the information that the author has gathered has come from people that he knows personally. Keener’s research indicates that these miraculous events are happening in our world more frequently than we might think. He believes that the miraculous is taking place on an even greater scale than his research reveals because his research sample is relatively small in size.

Why do we not see miracles as often in America as they are seen in the majority world?

In this article the author also touches on some reasons why we may not be seeing the miraculous happening in America with the frequency that it appears to be taking place overseas. What makes this article so significant is that it is written by a highly respected New Testament scholar. Dr. Craig Keener has written a number of major biblical commentaries and he is known for his thorough research. The article mentions that he has a book coming out about the subject of miracles. This forthcoming book will very likely be a major contribution to the subject of the miraculous working of God in the church and in the world.
