Baptist News Global: Laying on of hands? A lot of Americans do it, study says

April 20, 2016
Nine of 10 people have turned to prayer for healing at some point in their lives, and more than one fourth have practiced laying on of hands, according to a study by Jeff Levin, Ph.D., M.P.H., University Professor of Epidemiology and Population Health in Baylor's Institute for Studies of Religion (ISR). "Outside of belief in God, there may be no more ubiquitous religious expression in the U.S. than use of healing prayer," Levin said. The study was published in the Journal of Religion and Health, with analysis of data from the national Baylor Religion Survey. (Terry Goodrich, assistant director of Baylor Media Communications, pitched this research nationally. She covers ISR research and faculty.)
