Faith-Based Caregiving in a Secular World
Four Defining Issues
This book challenges a number of widely held beliefs about faith-based healthcare.
First, it examines the difference between “curing” and “healing” in Jesus’ ministry; second, spirituality is redefined to make it more meaningful to caregivers; third, to combat the compassion fatigue that often cripples them, the biblical command to rest is recommended; finally, some misguided (though well-intentioned) explanations of God’s role in sickness and death are critiqued.
People preparing for and professionals involved in healthcare will be informed and inspired by the content of this book.
