Item description for Churches and Health Care in the Third World: Past and Present/Eglises Et Sante Dans Le Tiers Monde : Hier Et Aujourd'Hui (Studies in Christian Mission) (French Edition) by Jean Pirotte & Henri Derroitte...

The fifteen papers presented here examine three centuries of close, if sometimes ambiguous, links between Christian mission and medicine. The authors, who include theologians, historians, sociologists, physicians and representatives of major international health-care organisations, address themselves to such questions as: How is one to assess the results of past missionary health-care effort? How are modern-day Christian organisations to cope with the burden of institutions set up in the past? What links should the Churches maintain with official medical organisations? What position should the Churches take on the `faith v. healing' debate begun by certain religious groups? And how is one to lay the groundwork of a theology of health and healing? The complexity of the issues outlined here can - alas - provide no easy answers. Quinze auteurs, compris theologiens, historiens, sociologues, medecins et responsables d'organisations sanitaires, ont centre leurs reflections sur le role des Eglises chretiennes dans le domaine de la sante, hier dans les pays de mission, aujourd'hui dans ces memes regions ou se murit une veritable inculturation du christianisme. Dans cet ouvrage ils abordent plusieurs questions fondamentales: comment evaluer les resultats et lacunes de l'action sanitaire des missions dans le passe? Les communautees chretiennes actuelles doivent-elles porter le poids d'institutions mises en place hier? Quels rapports les Eglises doivent-elles entretenir avec les organisations medicales officielles? Comment les Eglises se situent-elles dans la dialectique `foi-guerison' developpee par certains groupes religieux? Plus profondement, comment poser les jalons d'une theologie de la sante et de la guerison? Trouver les reponses sur ces questions complexes c'est une tache tres delicate.
