The Spiritual Challenge of Health Care, 1st Edition
This unique text explores the spiritual dimensions of health care and guides the reader in understanding and dealing with those dimensions of people which cannot be accounted for empirically. Drawing from a number of traditions, this resource carefully explains why medicine must be both science and art.
