Increasingly, physicians and other health care workers are becoming alienated from their work, as medicine becomes more and more de-personalized, technologically oriented and driven by entrepreneurial concerns. The Healer's Calling addresses the longings of many people in this profession for a renewed sense of the transcendent meaning of their work, for the spiritual elements of healing.-- where God may be found in health care-- how faithful clinicians might persevere in the midst of the suffering and uncertainty that is part of daily practice-- how and when a doctor or nurse might pray-- how genuine Christian joy can still be found in the healing artsWith extraordinary grace and passion, Franciscan friar and physician Daniel Sulmasy speaks to the spiritual longing of healers. His work is at once a personal reflection and exhortation, written at a time of great turmoil in medicine. Sure to be of great interest to health care workers at all levels, it will capture the attention of anyone concerned about the spiritual dimensions of health care.

There are many important questions raised in this book. The fragmentation of medical values, whether a good doctor requires as much knowledge of the person as of the disease, the claims created by a scientific medicine dependent upon the largesse of government grants, the conversion of medicine from cottage industry to entrepreneurial endeavour, all had their beginnings in medicine's Golden Age. Their heirs, today's practitioners, may have mistaken technology for their task, science for their religion, and business for their creed, but if the spirit of the physicians in this book wins out, medicine's Golden Age is yet in the future.

London, 1929 - It isn't easy being a fashionable flapper and emulating your silver screen heroines when you live in a poky East End terrace with your poor, widowed mother, your over-achieving sister, and such disreputable and drunken lodgers as you can find to help pay the bills, as sixteen-year-old Lucy "Lucille" Kitson can testify. However, their newest lodger - a young writer from the jazzy metropolis of New York - is far more to her liking, and it's only a shame that he has to be concealing a secret that makes him a marked man, and endangers all who befriend him. Pulled inexorably into a dark supernatural world, and into an even darker scientific one, Lucy Kitson finds her priorities and her survival equally challenged - hard lessons that she must endure if she is to help put an end to the "Healers," their murderous nocturnal predations, and their sinister designs that threaten the lives and souls of thousands.

The Healers is the fifth novel in the Inspector Ramsay series by Ann Cleeves, author of the Shetland and Vera Stanhope crime series. News of the murder first came to Inspector Stephen Ramsay early on Monday morning. He was in a meeting, one of the endless meetings the Chief Superintendent regularly called, and the summons from Sergeant Gordon Hunter came as a relief. They found middle-aged farmer Ernie Bowles lying on his kitchen floor. He had been strangled, and was not a pretty sight. The gruesome discovery of his body had first been made by the beautiful Lily Jackman, a new-age traveller who was living with her boyfriend in a caravan on Bowles's land. Neither of them, however, had been close to the dead farmer, who had lived alone since the death of his mother and was, by all accounts, a rather unpleasant character. Inspector Ramsay fears that this case will not be simple. In his experience, most murders are straightforward: an explosion of family pressure, the loss of control in a fight. But Bowles seems to have kept himself to himself, and Ramsay feels that to solve the mystery of his death he will need all the help he can get. Then another person is strangled, a woman who, on the surface, had absolutely no connection with the dead farmer. Surely two such killings in the same locality are more than just chilling coincidence? When Ramsay hears of a third suspicious death, a very tenuous link between the victims takes on a new importance, for all were connected in some way to the Alternative Therapy Centre in Mittingford. Could one of the healers be a killer?

Did you know that a certain Mozart symphony can ease digestion problems ... that swelling often indicates being stuck in outworn patterns ... that breathing pink is good for skin conditions and loneliness? Most disease stems from a metaphysical base. While we are constantly being exposed to viruses and bacteria, it is our unbalanced or blocked emotions, attitudes and thoughts that deplete our natural physical energies and make us more susceptible to 'catching a cold' or manifesting some other physical problem.

"Rebecca J. Tannenbaum points out that housewives provided much of the medical care available in the seventeenth century. Elite women cared for the indigent in their towns and used medical practice to make influential connections with powerful men; "doctresses" or "doctor women," supported themselves with their practices and competed directly with male physicians; and midwives were crucial "expert witnesses" in cases of fornication, murder, and witchcraft. Yet there were limits to the authority of women's healing communities, with consequences for those who overstepped the bounds."--Cover.
