This blog gains its name from the book Steele's Answers published in 1912. It began as an effort to blog through that book, posting each of the Questions and Answers in the book in the order in which they appeared. I began the project on Dec. 10, 2011. I completed it on July 11, 2015. Along the way, I began to also post snippets from Dr. Steele's other writings — and from some other holiness writers of his times. I still do that every once in a while.

Wesley on Divine Healing

QUESTION: Did John Wesley say or write anything about divine healing?

ANSWER: He wrote a book on "Physic," recommending various medicines for different diseases, took medicines himself, and submitted to surgical operation. When seventy-two years of age, being nigh unto death, he was marvelously healed "while a few select friends were praying that, as in the case of Hezekiah, God would add to his days fifteen years." He lived fifiteen years and a few months afterwards.
