This book wasn't exactly what I expected. I guess, based on the cover, I expected it to be more about hospital ministry or in patient ministry--and it does cover that, but it also talks about how anyone who is caring for anyone else can combine their Christian faith with their care-giving to the other person. It honestly discusses some pitfalls that can close the communication down and presents some alternative ways to approach the same issue. ( )

Caregiving Guide

The world needs people who care. This book is a practical manual for anyone who has ever felt uncomfortable comforting a friend or acquaintance.

Kenneth Haugk has written this book to address the real-life issues people confront when caring for others. Many find it easier to discuss sex than to discuss issues of their faith and religion. Even if we are comfortable sharing these matters, those with whom we deal may not be.

This practical, well-written book takes the reader beyond theories about the integration of psychology and theology. It strengthens and re-enforces your call to care for those about who you care. ( )
