Summaries and Reviews
Amazon.com description: Product Description: Discover how physical, mental, and spiritual health can be enhanced by faith

A physician, well-known for praying with his patients, and an award-winning professor of theology share their insights on how religious faith can provide help in the healing processes of today’s health care ministry. Is There a God in Health Care? shares the belief that prayer can be a powerful resource in dealing with illness, whether physical, spiritual, or emotional. The authors avoid rehashing analytical theories on suffering and the “miracles” of healing they may have seen, instead examining how personal faith can enhance the immune system, how a spiritual outlook can help bear the burden of suffering and grief, and how forbearance and forgiveness are crucial in maintaining a healthy attitude toward life.

Authors William F. Haynes Jr. and Geffrey B. Kelly share their experiences on the nature of faith, spirituality, and the practice of prayer as pathways to the achievement of inner peace, good health, and wholeness when struggling to overcome illness, cope with grief, or finding meaning in suffering. Is There a God in Health Care? examines how, without neglecting proper medical interventions, faith can become a helpful healing resource in times of need. This compelling book presents case studies of patients healed or cured of their illnesses through the power of prayer and stories of actual services in which a religious healer has affected both spiritual healings and physical cures.

Is There a God in Health Care? includes:
  • suggestions for learning how to pray
  • stages of faith and prayer
  • healing a broken heart
  • doctor-patient bonding
  • the physician as spiritual healer
  • the importance of listening
  • God as caregiver
  • accepting God’s plan
  • the mystery of prayers that go unanswered
  • the impact of national and international political policies in present-day health care crises
  • and much more
Is There a God in Health Care? is brimming with compassion and insights that can help everyone involved in the healing professions and anyone who cares for the sick among us.
