On May 14, PW gave a favorable review to a Zondervan title called Alternative Medicine: The Christian Handbook, and issued the prediction that we would likely be seeing more books on the subject from Christian publishers. That prophecy is coming true even sooner than we had expected: this month, InterVarsity Press releases Examining Alternative Medicine: An Inside Look at the Benefits & Risks by Paul C. Reisser, Dale Mabe and Robert Velarde. This book examines many of the same issues (herbal supplements, homeopathy, etc.) as the Zondervan title, but adopts a more scholarly and critical approach.
