There are few books these days that can be called definitive, but Caring and Curing is one of them.
Caring and Curing should be on the shelves of all parish priests [and] university and hospital chaplains and in the libraries of many doctors who have an interest in the relationship between the faith of patients and the practice of medicine today.
A pioneer in the field.
Taken together, these essays constitute an impressive discussion of the diffuse but pervasive presence of religion in modern life. And, as such, they should be of considerable interest not only to religious historians but also to all health care professionals who must make sense of the general public's attitudes toward the proper care of the human body.
An excellent contribution to the field of church history.
No review could ever do justice to the originality, depth, and scope of these chapters.
Caring and Curing [is] a must for anybody involved in medicine.
