NEW CONCEPTS OF HEALING

More is going on to bring together the various insights and skills of the healing professions than the average layman realizes. The arts and sciences of healing, some with origins as old as man, have come gradually to see that the well-being of the whole man requires more than any one discipline can bring to his healing. Body, mind and spirit interpenetrate; it is impossible to tell where one leaves off and another begins. In fact, there is a psycho-somatic unity in man that demands cooperation and sympathetic understanding among those who would help him. Miss Ikin, from years of study and practice in the field, has written a book of unusual significance and importance, telling of the substantial progress made, and pointing out the fact that only a beginning has been achieved in drawing on the inexhaustible resources of the healing power available through God. Dr. Wayne Oates has written an introduction to this American edition and added an appendix of material drawn from the conferences and seminars in this field held in the United States. This adds greatly to the value of book for American readers. This will be the selection of the Pastoral Psychology Book Club for May. Doctors, clergy, welfare workers, surges and many others will find help, inspiration and encouragement in a book that has something to say to all who know sickness or suffering- a wide potential market.
