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, a difference still confusing to many in modern healthcare; 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 reccomended; and finally, some misguided (though well-intentioned) explanations of God's role in sickness and death are critiqued.
