“Spiritual Healing: Help from the Spirit World,” is perhaps a unique way of telling the story, for I felt that I should begin the book on the Biblically-generated issue of physicalism, the belief that we are purely physical beings, versus dualism, the belief that we are physical beings who have an immortal soul, or incarnated spirit.  I describe what is presently known about disincarnate spirit existence, with ample reference to Allan Kardec’s Spiritism.  I suggest how disincarnate spirits help us heal by working on our subtle energy body.  And I provide life histories and many examples of spirit help in healing from the documented healing ministry of the late Harry Edwards in Great Britain, and from my personal observations of the healing ministry of John of God during eight trips to Abadiânia, Brazil.
