"Many nurses feel confused, disillusioned and discouraged. Called to Care brings vision and hope to nursing by demonstrating how Christian faith provides timeless foundations for nursing care." "Shelly and Miller consider such issues as how our beliefs about God shape the way we care for others, the meaning of personhood, the nature of the environment in which we care, a richer view of health - shalom as the goal of nursing, and the distinctives of Christian nursing, including spiritual care and hope in suffering."--Jacket.
