" for the minister
and doctor .... "

" Can religion help cure a migraine headache ?
Yes, says Dr. James Dale Van Buskirk, if the headache is due to anxiety, fear, or worry;
for religion is an effective tool in curing the sick and maintaining good health.
To the doctor who has to deal with so-called psychosomatic illnesses, to the minister who, in his counselling and guidance work, serves as a physician of the soul, as well as to the psychologist, social worker, and everyone else whose job is to help the individual find happiness and security, Religion, Healing and Health is a welcome book.

In his early chapters Dr. Van Buskirk describes the relation between body and mind - emotions and illnesses.
He refers to the great psychologists and physiologists like Freud, Jung, and Cannon and illustrates his points with case histories and undisputed medical facts.
Later he shows that a healthy religious life of faith and trust with God and with our fellow men is the best combattant for the emotions of guilt, anger, and anxiety that play such havoc with our physical well-being.

For the more general reader, the candid discussion of Christian Science and faith-healing cults is particularly interesting.
So too is the evaluation of the work of the Church in healing and health from Jesus down to the missionaries and hospitals of today. In these days when science and religion are so often opposed, Dr. Van Buskirk sets them side by side, working for the betterment of man.
