John Alexander Dowie - Harlan - Rolvix Harlan - eBook

$11.00
This was the primary biography of Alexander Dowie (who was correctly regarded as the father of the 20th century Healing Movement) until Gordon Lindsay's book was published in the 1950's. Though Harlan did an admirable job, meticulously researching Dowie's life and ministry, it has to be noted that he was not a follower of Dowie and his thesis includes observations clearly furnished by his enemies as well as his friends.

Dowie was intensely evangelistic and passionate about divine healing. His early meeting halls were filled with the crutches, braces, and other medical devices that his followers no longer needed because they had been miraculously cured.

Dowie published his followers’ healing testimonials in a weekly publication titled ‘Leaves of Healing.’ He also stressed consecration and holiness. While Dowie’s ministry predated the contemporary revival of Pentecostalism, many of his followers became influential figures in the Pentecostal revival in the early years of the twentieth century.
