Pastors and chaplains have been sharing this book with nurses and doctors with an amazing response.  They say there is nothing like this out there.  Financial planners are saying that everyone should have a copy to help them through the tough times.  Family members with suffering loved one consider it invaluable.  The audience is far more wide spread than imagined.  Instructors and professors here on the East Coast are giving them away and maintaining a supply to distribute as needed.

This is a “handbook” with very practical and “down to earth” suggestions, helpful in training volunteers, parish visitor and pastors who have not had any Clinical Pastoral Education…  And a convenient refresher guide for those who have studied hospital ministry.  Derry gives clear insight into hospital protocol and practices to prepare the mind and heart for hospital visitation punctuated with dramatic stories of divine inspiration. – REVEREND DR. TIMOTHY LITTE DMin, B.C.C.   A.C.P.E. Supervisor, A.A.P.C Pastoral Counselor, Past Certification Chair, Assoc. of Professional Chaplains
