The story of Dowie is that of a man with an amazing mission—a mission that in its scope took in nothing less than the whole world. It is an account of a reformer who, fighting against the greatest of odds, single-handedly challenged the apostasy of his time, and succeeded in bringing to the attention of the church visible, if not to its acceptance, the message of the Gospel of healing—a message of deliverance for the whole man, body, soul and spirit.

Against overwhelming opposition, a hostile press, bitterly opposed clergymen, antagonistic city officials, unscrupulous lawyers, who, hired by the combined opposition, used every loophole of the law and legal technicality to stop him, he fought for and maintained the right to pray for the sick.

Despite the fiercest persecution, numerous illegal arrests—as many as one hundred in a year—he outwitted and foiled his enemies, and succeeded in bringing to the attention of the world, the great truth that Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, and today, and forever, and established the right for the minister of the Christian Church to obey Christ’s command in the Great Commission to lay hands on the sick for healing.

Gordon Lindsay has done an excellent job of drawing out the most useful and faithbuilding materials from the life of one of God’s choice saints.
