Dieter Mulitze is the Director of Ministry for Deeper Love Ministries and has written three books on the ministry of healing
prayer. One of Dieter’s main roles in this ministry is teaching on healing
prayer and speaking at conferences. Dieter’s three books serve to articulate
and strengthen the theology and practice of the ministry of healing prayer
for the whole person. Dieter graduated from the U. of Guelph (BSc) and
holds a PhD in quantitative genetics from the U. of Saskatchewan. He is a
graduate of Regent College, Vancouver, B.C., with the Master of Christian
Studies (MCS) degree, concentrating in spiritual theology.
Pills for the Soul? How Medication Falls Short of Christ’s Healing of the Emotions
Dieter Mulitze’s third book critiques prevalent models of psychiatry, and the
Church’s acceptance of ‘worldly wisdom’ in this field. Arguing that emotional
sickness must not be reduced to materialistic notions of brain chemistry, he
believes that Christians have gone along with the rest of society to become
addicted to the pharmaceutical and psychiatric industries. He believes that
healing the soul and renewing the spirit can provide relief from despair,
sorrow, abuse, addictive behaviours and un-reconciled conflict. The book
calls for the Church to get back to its roots and make use of the abundant
resources of the gospel. By returning to the Living God, and making use
of the resources He has given, the Church will again become a resource for
God’s salvation and healing.

The Great Omission: Resolving Critical Issues for the Ministry of
Healing and Deliverance
Dieter Mulitze’s first book raises the alarm that the contemporary church
is failing to understand and live out Jesus’ teachings and, therefore, failing
to be obedient to God. Because of this failure, even though the work of
Christ and His Spirit are omnipresent, seekers now go elsewhere to seek
reality. The book argues that the absence of healing ministry in the church
is a major lack in the church’s faithfulness to a New Testament mission.
In response, this book presents the case for a scripturally-based healing
ministry that draws us into a complete relationship with Jesus. The result is
a challenge not only to how we think, but what we do, compelling us to go
beyond understanding the gospel to become obedient to it.

The Great Substitution: Human Effort or Jesus to Heal and Restore
This book offers a critique of secular and limited psychological practices
often used within Christian churches. While not rejecting legitimate
psychological and physical healing arts, the book examines the nature of
the biblical divine healing mission and proposes a recovery of the biblical
emphasis on Jesus as Healer. That Jesus Himself is the source of healing is
Good News both for the sinner seeking forgiveness and the wounded seeking
healing. The book develops a Trinitarian theology and practice of healing
prayer based on the Presence of Christ and His Spirit.
