"Hostility to Hospitality..." Review

In this extended book review of Hostility to Hospitality: Spirituality and Professional Socialization within Medicine published in the Christian Journal for Global Health, ISCAST President, Alan Gijsbers, summarises and critiques an important book exploring the need for a larger place for spirituality in the delivery of health care.

He agrees with the need but critiques some of reasons put forward to meet that need. For Alan the secular world need not be a hostile place for spirituality, but it calls for wisdom and winsomeness in the way we promote the gospel.
