Summary

Summary

World-renowned medical scientist, Harold Koenig, discusses the powerful link between Christian faith and health in The Healing Connection . The first two informative sections of the book explore Koenig's own personal physical and spiritual pilgrimage and provide solid research on the connection between faith and healing. The last two applicable sections encourage readers to apply scientific findings and truth to their own lives and challenge Christians to be involved in the ongoing health crisis facing modern society. Through the use of illustrations, stories, personal experiences, and scientific evidences, Koenig presents a dynamic case for integrating faith and healing.

Publisher's Weekly Review

Dr. Harold Koenig, founder of the Center for the Study of Religion/Spirituality and Health at Duke University Medical Center, advocates the power of spiritual healing in The Healing Connection: A World-Renowned Medical Scientist Explores the Powerful Link Between Christian Faith and Health. As the subtitle suggests, Koenig seems a bit enamored with his own prestige, and the book's first section (an autobiographical account of his own experiences as a doctor and a person struggling with a debilitating disease) succumbs too often into self-congratulatory mentions of his many achievements. However, the second and third sections offer strong opinions about Christian faith, spiritual healing and the future of the medical establishment. (Word, $21.99 212p ISBN 0-8499-1622-4; Jan.)
