First published thirty years ago, this sensational and highly original book has been in print and in demand ever since. This SPCK Classics edition has a new Foreword by Russ Parker, Director of the Acorn Christian Healing Foundation.
Dr Kenneth McAll tells how through his medical and religious experiences he has discovered a remarkable new method of healing. Believing that many supposedly ‘incurable’ patients are the victims of ancestral control, he seeks to liberate them from domination. By drawing up a family tree he is able to identify the ancestor who is causing his patient harm. He then cuts the bond between the ancestor and the patient by celebrating, with a clergyman, a service of Holy Communion in which he delivers the tormented ancestor to God.
Dr Kenneth McAll. (1910-2001) was born in China and graduated in medicine from Edinburgh University. He returned to China as a missionary-surgeon and was interned by the Japanese, with his wife and child, for four years during the Second World War. His experiences in China led to his taking an interest in the powers of possession, and he subsequently devoted his life to the curing of psychiatric illness through divine guidance. After returning to the UK, he spent ten years in general practice and twenty-five practising as a consultant psychiatrist. He was an associate member of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, and wrote both articles and books on the subject of mental illness and the healing powers of the Eucharist.
