The Healing Theology of Agnes Sanford
Ever since the Fall, God's people have been tempted to mix with foreign gods. Many have given in. Evangelicalism's dance with modern psychology is no exception. For the past century, evangelicals have embraced a host of secular therapies, including Inner Healing - a methodology that is said to heal those painful memories hidden in the "unconscious" soul and hinder present happiness.
One name in particular stands out, Agnes Sanford has long been hailed as the mother of the Inner Healing/Healing of Memories movement. She almost single-handedly brought it out of Jungian psychology and New Thought into the Christian Church.
Though Sanford's methods are popular in various segments of the Church, they are anything but Christian. Jane Gumprecht, M.D. walks us through Agnes Sanford's life and theology to unveil her deep compromises with non-Christian thought.
