Abstract

One of the most powerful and fascinating themes of modern popular Evangelicalism is the doctrine of "divine healing." Through the work such healing evangelists as Kathryn Kuhlman and Oral Roberts - and more recently especially through the 700 and PTL Clubs of Pat Robertson and Jim Bakker - the search for miraculous healing has burst its apparent Pentecostal and Charismatic confines to penetrate a broader Evangelicalism. The apparent novelty of this concern to a modem Evangelicalism nurtured for the last couple of generations on the theology of Old Princeton extruded through B. B. Warfield has obscured the extent to which an earlier 19th century pre-Pentecostal Evangelicalism but reveals the extent to which Pentecostalism was not so unnatural an evolution out of the Fundamentalist experience as is often assumed.
