Title: African Christianity and the Intersection of Faith, Traditional, and Biomedical Healing.
Author: Boyo, Bernard; Bowen, Michael; Kariuki-Githinji, Scholastica; Kombo, James
Abstract: Africa has witnessed an increase of clergy who favor faith healing but have little appreciation for modern medicine. The intersection between African traditional healing and faith healing remains unclear, with most curricula in theological and Bible schools failing to address these fundamental issues. Research was conducted to establish the intersection between faith, traditional, and biomedical healing. The findings show that faith healing is practiced by nearly three-fourths of the respondents and that African Instituted Churches give relatively more attention to practices of faith healing than do other denominations.
