Abstract

191 This is a sincere attempt to address the question of integral heal- ing and wholeness. It is a valuable contribution to the available literature which addresses the human experience of wholeness at various levels: "in a rapport with nature, in bodily health, in the expectation of survival after death, in social and psychic integra- tion, in the sphere of human morality and in the area of the world's s cosmic forces. " Those with pastoral responsibilities, those involved in community development, students of new religious movements, missionaries, and anyone concerned about the healing not of illnesses but of people will find this work illuminating.
