Joybringer Bosworth ~ The Life Story of F. F. Bosworth

Fred Francis Bosworth

The other day, while on a Google for something else, I came across this book about F. F. Bosworth. He was one of the founders of the Assemblies of God but soon became a part of the Christian and Missionary Alliance in the early 1900s. He quickly became known for his big tent and large auditorium revivals, and for his emphasis on divine healing. He and his brother, B. B. Bosworth, who was in healing ministry with him, saw many people miraculously healed.

The story of his early ministry is told in Joybringer Bosworth by Eunice Perkins, published in 1921. You can read it at the link above, download it in PDF or EPUB.

F. F. Bosworth is the author of the classic book on healing, Christ the Healer, which was first published in 1924, has gone through numerous editions and has since sold over 500,000 copies. It has recently been revised and expanded by his son, Robert V. Bosworth, and continues to minister to and bless many people today.

Is healing for everyone? God is not just “able” to heal, He is willing! The Lord is gracious and compassionate, and He longs to give you all the blessings of redemption, including physical healing. He is Jehovah-Rapha, the God who heals you (Exodus 15:26). Why is this blessing of divine healing the source of much confusion in the church? What does the Bible really say about healing? Explore this controversial topic with author F. F. Bosworth as he carefully searches the Scriptures for answers to perplexing questions such as ...
  • Is healing really possible today?
  • Is healing for everyone?
  • What was Paul's “thorn in the flesh”?
  • How is a person supposed to receive healing?
  • Can I receive healing? 
“Faith begins where the will of God is known,” says the author. By understanding God’s will for your healing, you can live in the fullness of your salvation in Christ — spirit and body.
