This important symposium is the product of the cooperative effort of a large group of people interested in the relation of the church to the mental health movement. It has been carried forward to publication by a committee of the Federal Council of Churches (now a part of the National Council). It is designed to help ministers in the fostering of mental health and in helping the mentally ill. It is an attempt to help physicians and professional social workers understand and use the resource of the church for the same end. Included among the fifteen contributors are pastors, psychiatrists, chaplains, and theologians. All phases of mental health and all aspects of the relation of religion and the Church to mental health are discussed by the contributors. Some of the chapters are erudite and technical, but most of them are sufficiently practical to be of great use to those who want to be of the maximum effectiveness in their pastoral counselling.
