Overview

Another pioneering book by the author of Good Grief. Here, Granger Westberg presents a creative, new way for congregations to provide a holistic ministry to their members. His parish nurse program brings nurses onto congregations' staff to work as ministers of health on a part-time or full-time basis. In this way congregations can play an increasingly important role in keeping people spiritually and physically healthy and giving leadership in the field of preventive medicine. Parish nurses serve as health educators, health counselors, volunteer trainers, and support group organizers. In hundreds of congregations, this program has been well received by clergy and church members.
About the Author

The Late Granger E. Westberg held a joint professorship in medicine and religion at the University of Chicago and a professorship in preventive medicine at the University of Illinois College of Medicine. Considered a pioneer in the interrelationship of religion and medicine, and in holistic healthcare.
