Abstract This is not a quack book but a thoughtful scholarly treatise by a serious student of the relation of religion to health. Granted that physicians now recognize the importance of physical and mental health, Dr. Hiltner would lay an additional emphasis on spiritual wellbeing and its place in the armamentarium of healing. While the point of view is developed against the background of Christian philosophy, the treatment is a broad one which goes to the roots of what spiritual aid can accomplish in helping a sick person. Young physicians especially, who perhaps have felt that physics and chemistry are enough to solve the problem of disease, would profit much from a careful reading of this book. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Internal Medicine American Medical Association
