Spiritual healing raises challenging issues. Religious traditions such as Christianity make strong claims about healing. The gospels are full of healing stories, and it is claimed that the followers of Jesus continued such
healings. In the twentieth century and into the twenty-first there has been a marked revival of interest in healing within various faith traditions, and in non-religious settings too. Is it credible that spiritual healing takes place? If so, how are such healings to be understood and explained in our scientific culture?
