Margaret Mohrmann has written a book that skillfully addresses the interrelationship of medicine and ministry in the healing process. I serve as a hospital chaplain in a large suburban hospital, and it is refreshing to read a book by a physician that emphasizes the importance of medicine and ministry as cooperating disciplines in the healing process. The book is insightful, yet concise and easily approachable by caregivers, helping professionals, patients, and lay people alike. Dr. Mohrmann is candid and honest about the strengths and limitations of the practice of medicine, but also deeply in tune with the spiritual side of healing. She shares some heart-warming stories from her work as a physician. She also successfully addresses the ethical considerations that often enter into the decision-making process, particiularly in cases where medical options are limited or have already been exhausted.For a fresh, compassionate, and hope-filled look into the healing process and the mind-body-spirit connection, read this book. It will renew your hope and lift your spirit!
