Acerca de


This study of William Marrion Branham's ministry reveals much about the healing methodology of deliverance evangelists. Branham's theology of healing highlights the widely accepted role of evangelists as mediators between God and the afflicted. The dynamic growth of Pentecostalism in the twentieth century is a major feature of the modern religious scene. Branham is acknowledged as a leader of the healing revival movement. Although little known outside of the Pentecostal movement, his work had tremendous influence on today's televangelists and the whole of Pentecostalism itself.

From the Publisher:

"The story C. Douglas Weaver tells... is one of riviting interest to those who trace their religious roots to the post-World War II craving for an outpouring of the Holy Spirit. It is a fascinating, unlikely tale of triumph and disappointment. Branham was enigmatic and controversial at the height of his career, and he became more ethereal toward the end of his life. Weaver tells the Branham story fairly and dispassionately. Indeed, he writes with a rare and admirable degree of sympathy for his subject. As a result, his book will help outsiders understand the making and functioning of a prophetic personality in the Pentecostal subculture....

"...This is a story well told and truly worthy of reading. Much of what happened in the Pentecostal/charismatic world in the second half of the twentieth century owes something to the startling reports and wondrous claims that echoed from the Branham healing campaigns of 1946 and 1947."—David Edwin Harrell, Jr. from the Foreword

"Largely unknown today, William Branham was a powerful force in the Pentecostal healing revivals of the mid-twentieth century. This excellent study explores Branham's activities as a preacher-healer and his place within the broader Pentecostal tradition. An unassuming man with a controversial theology, Branham's impact on later faith healers—Oral Roberts and others—has often been overlooked. Weaver's book is an intriguing exercise in American biography and theology. It is also a perceptive analysis of the "prophetic" in one representative segment of American Pentecostalism. The book is a provocative contribution to the study of American Evangelicalism."—Bill J. Leonard
