HOW RELIGION HELPS by Albert N. Palmer


Email this review


Out of his own personal experience of a protracted illness Dr. Palmer has given us a little book which should be most helpful to those who are ill, in trouble or in especial need of a new assurance of God's presence. The first chapter ""How Religion Helps in Illness"" is full of practical suggestions as to how religion can help produce a state of mind conducive to good health in recovery from illness. Then follows an exposition of the Twenty-Third Psalm that will be especially helpful to those in trouble. A chapter on ""Medical Science and Christian Faith"" has many valuable points for the sick and those ministering to them. Finally, Dr. Palmer gives a series of suggestions for devotional services with individuals in small groups. Pastors, hospital chaplains, doctors and nurses would all find helpful material in this volume.
