Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0824501020, Hardcover)Religion and Pain is an eminently practical work both in its scope and in its methodology. It is a book which recognizes that while all members of all religions are enjoined to relieve pain, a genuinely spiritual ministry itself must be expressed more in deeds than in words. Religion and Pain focuses on hospital and health-care personnel who believe that a religious perspective is essential for a holistic approach to health. The book discusses the attitudes of these health-care professionals - doctors, nurses, administrators, chaplains - to the spiritual side of their work, how they see it changing under new circumstances, how they view its future. As befits a work by one of the leading American religious sociologists, this is a book based on on-site interviews and on an exhaustive questionnaire-survey of 700 staff members in over 300 religious hospitals and other health-care facilities. The result is a study that will help, encourage, and enlighten all who are professionally concerned with creating a total therapeutic community where the medical and the spiritual are recognized as working in tandem.
