The reviewer calls this book the collected wisdom of 20 prefessionals in medicine, mental health & pastoral care from a number of Judeo-Christian theological perspectives, presented in a concise, well organized text that focuses on a major social issue in a way that is both practical & challenging. Case studies are relevant to those with or without training or experience. However, the ways in which theologies & consequent practises of various Christian traditions differ is one overlooked aspect.
