Item description for From Coffin to Heaven: A Psychological Study of Christian Conversion in Drug Rehabilitation by Ng Ho-Yee...

This is the story of a group of men who called themselves "heroin-coffin". It is their story of ascension from the Styxian shore of heroin addiction to a new-found heaven in a Christian brotherhood. The research study which gives rise to this story raises the question of the apparent antagonism between science and religion. Can religious faith be studied from a scientific viewpoint? Is scientific skepticism not spiritually destructive in its demand for objectivity, quantification, and repeatability? At one stage, scientific communication has been deliberately made devoid of human passion, the longings and despairs of the human condition. However, a research orientation which opens up avenues to reconcile the antagonisms is found in George Kelly's Personal Construct Theory (1955) which also offers a theoretical framework for understanding drug addiction and drug rehabilitation.

Reviews - What do customers think about From Coffin to Heaven: A Psychological Study of Christian Conversion in Drug Rehabilitation?

Coffin to Heaven  Jun 30, 2009
I bought this book for a class I had to take for my degree "Drugs in Society." The assignment was to find a book and do a book report. This book was what I chose, I'm not sure why though. It is a pretty dry read. Based on the subtitle though that would be a given for any normal person. It served its purpose and I got a 92 on the paper but I would never recommend it for anything above that of doing assignments with.
