dc.description.abstractThe dissertation is a descriptive history of three major movements in religious healing in the United States which have been especially prominent during the years 1940-1960. The division of these movements has been made from the standpoint of their respective methodologies, thus distinguishing three approaches: healing through pastoral (religio-psychiatric) counseling, healing through liturgical worship, and healing through applied metaphysics. Part One of the dissertation describes the historical background of each of these three movements, and Part Two presents the theology of healing in each approach, with a final chapter correlating concepts in all three movements. Individual and denominational differences within each approach are recognized. [TRUNCATED]en_US
