Reviews - What do customers think about Broken Bodies, Healing Hearts: Reflections of a Hospital Chaplain?

Reads like literature  Feb 21, 2007
This is a collection of the author's personal experiences as a hospital chaplain. It is like a short story anthology, one chapter, one self-contained anecdote. That's a compliment: the book reads well. The empathy that the author's profession requires of her carries through to her care for the reader as well. We, the audience, gain knowing what it feels like to be both in the position of the patient needing spiritual aid, and of the often awkward, anxious, yet gratifying, position of the one offering it.

Definitely recommended for those considering hospital or hospice chaplaincy as an honest, empathetic view into the field. But also recommended in its own right for the general audience as a collection of interesting tales on the difficult border of medicine and meaning.

Make it into a TV show! Not the opposite of House MD, but a complement.
