This is the most comprehensive collection of studies in the field of religion, spirituality and healthcare. Extremely easy to read and nicely organized for easy use. As a researcher myself in the field of spirituality and healthcare, I have found this book to be a "must have" resource for our own work. I would strongly recommend this book wihtout reservation!

ANDREW J. WEAVER, Ph.D. (, a United Methodist pastor and research psychologist
This handbook reviews and discusses the extensive research on the relationships between religion and a variety of mental and physical health outcomes, including depression, anxiety, heart disease, hypertension, stroke and cancer, as well as the destructive behaviors such as smoking, substance abuse, and risky sexual activity. This is a comprehensive and useful summary of the field of religion and health by three recognized experts who can write plain English. This will quickly become one of the Bibles of the field. RECOMMENDED WITHOUT RESERVATION.

Format: Hardcover
This book was well worth the money. There is so much information on religion and health, from a detailed history on religion and medicine to specific subjects like well-being, depression, heart disease, stroke, immune function, and lots on cancer. I think anybody with a health background or a religion background would find this book helpful.
