In this episode we will discuss John Wesley’s theology of medicine and healing. To start, we will discuss the various extremes that exist in the evangelical church regarding the question of medicine and healing. Then we will talk about how Wesley held a middle ground on the issue that was both rational and glorifying to God. Wesley was certainly not a cessationist, but neither did he deny that medicine was a gift of God’s providence. We will also discuss John Wesley’s best selling book, his “Primitive Physic” as well. We hope this episode will be a step to the development of a biblical theology of medicine and healing.
