Date:7/24/2009

WASHINGTON, July 24 /PRNewswire/ -- Medicine and healing have long been intertwined with faith, prayer and spiritual practices. In more recent years, the debate about the nature of the relationship between medicinal science and religion has intensified. In their informative new book, "Spirituality and Medicine: Can the Two Walk Together?" (published by AuthorHouse), experts Glenda F. Hodges, Ph.D., J.D., M.Div., and Harold B.

The authors also present an historical discussion about the spiritual aspects of medicine in major world religions.

Burnout and abuse in the healing professions is discussed, and the book concludes with a discussion of the soul from scientific and theological perspectives.

"Much attention has been given to an understanding of science and faith and how they connect," the authors write. "This book gives conversation to this connection and allows the readers to appreciate the interdisciplinary nature of healing. Many persons testify to medical miracles and how they have been touched by the same in the midst of various illnesses. The book details several testimonies that are worthy of reading -- with an open mind."

Glenda F. Hodges, Ph.D., J.D., M.Div., is the director of community relations at Howard University Hospital in Washington, DC. In 1998, Dr. Hodges, along with Robert H.
