What role can churches and religious organizations play in health care today? Abigail Rian Evans answers this question and others in this valuable guide to practical programs for health ministries. Beginning with a survey of the history of health ministry in the church, Evans demonstrates that what is needed is not to invent health ministries, but to recapture the spirit of the church as a health institution, both spiritual and physical. She then goes on to show what practical programs exist in the world today, and why these programs are important for the church to embrace and develop. Comprehensive in scope, this is an important resource for any individual or institution looking to develop or enhance a health ministry program. 288 pages, paper.

ABIGAIL RIAN EVANS is Charlotte W. Newcombe Professor of Practical Theology at Princeton Theological Seminary. She is the author of Redeeming Marketplace Medicine: A Theology of Health Care (The Pilgrim Press).

An important resource for any individual or institution looking to develop or enhance a health ministry program.
