Health and Faith: Medical, Psychological and Religious Dimensionsby John T. Chirban
The papers presented in this volume offer interdisciplinary sensitivity to critical matters of health from the perspectives of medicine, psychology, and religion. By drawing upon the expertise of leaders in these fields, this collection provides a holistic understanding of illness and cure. The contributions are selected from interdisciplinary conferences which argue for a return to approaching human health holistically, while maintaining the strengths of the independent dimensions of inquiry. This interdependent perspective emphasizes the integrity of the disciplines and affirms their joint inquiry. Contents: Healing: Science and Faith; Genetic Engineering: Where Do We Draw the Line?; Depression: A Case Study; AIDS and Cancer: The Role of the Helping Professional; Miracles and Technology.
