The reference includes information, formatted concisely and consistently, on a religion's history and theology; views on health and suffering, explanations for disease; beliefs and practices related to birthing, childrearing, and dying; healing rituals; corporate religious resources for the sick; and more. Prefacing this information are chapters discussing clinical aspects of addressing religion at the bedside.
