Healing Bodies, Minds and Souls: The Church’s Role in Health

Dan Hale and Harold G. Koenig (Fortress Press, 2003)

Reports moving stories of human illness and need and then describes how visionary leaders and congregations of caring people create new models of health ministry. Each chapter and model deals with a common serious illness by telling a detailed story followed by a physician’s medical analysis and recommendations for treatment and congregational ministries. This book is designed to guide the church into its needed leadership in the national health crusade. (adapted from Rev. G. Lloyd Rediger)
