My initial impressions as I read through Charles Fielding’s Preach and Heal was “Fantastic!”

I found Charles Fielding’s writing style, wit, logic and application quite enjoyable. I was impressed with the way he has re-looked at the 10 universal elements in Church Planting Movements and, employing the lens of a “High School Chemistry Class,” re-presented them to us as parts of a common chemistry formula: 1) ingredients, 2) methods, and 3) precipitated results. Fielding presents a clever, original, simple and memorable case for CPMs as the inevitable result of the proper combination of proper ingredients and methods.

Charles Fielding’s brilliant Preach and Heal is one of the better books out on the subject of church-planting movements. Fielding takes a fresh look at the CPM phenomenon through the eyes of a medical missionary who passionately desires his physical labors to yield an eternal harvest.

If you've ever wondered how to blend Christ's commands to "heal the sick!" with his commands to "preach the gospel!" then this is a great place to start. If you are planning to incorporate medical missions into your CPM strategies – and this is a plan that needs to be done well -- then you’ll want to begin with a good read of Fielding’s Preach and Heal.
