I was given this book as a gift at a Lutheran conference and it is very good. It studies the wholistic healing, prayer, and the instutions of medicine and how we view healing and sickness and how to take care of both. It is a great book, and there is a small chapter on parish nurses and emerging medicine/prayer understanding. I liked it.
