From Back of Book: Hope is a strange commodity. When we don't need it, we rarely think about it. But when we need it, we need as much as we can get. So it is for people who are dealing with cancer.

As a chaplain for the Cancer Treatment Centers of America, author and pastor Michael S. Barry has an insider's undertanding of the cancer patient's need for A Reason to Hope. With warmth and wisdom, he offers the reader scientific evidence and Scriptural principles that fuel the will to live and build the hope that can heal. If you have cancer - or are in a support role to someone who does - here is A Reason for Hope.
Special Note: Includes chapter guides for personal reflection or group discussions

Never before have healthcare institutions faced a more chaotic and threatening environment. Rising costs, aging populations, and a lack of medical insurance have forced healthcare in the Western world to undergo a tumultuous change. The Christian healthcare ministry has added problems. With increasingly complex medical-ethical challenges and the continuing struggle to maintain financial viability while insisting on a preferential option for the poor, there is an urgent need for Christian healthcare to refound itself. It must continually re-invent radically new ways to bring Christ

This book is a collection of the papers presented at an international symposium sponsored by the National Association of Catholic Chaplains (NACC) as part of a long-term exploration of topics of theological and pastoral concern in pastoral care of the sick. This book looks at the anointing of the sick from the vantage point of theology, history, and cannon law. Since Vatican II the training and commissioning of lay Eucharistic ministers has enabled the sick and dying to receive the nourishment of Christ's body and blood regularly in their confinement at home or an institution. The sacraments of penance and the anointing of the sick, however, have become less and less available as the number or ordained priests in chaplaincy is decreasing. In response to this pastoral problem, Bishop Richard J. Sklba, auxiliary bishop of Milwaukee, suggested that the NACC gather theologians together to explore the history and practice of this sacrament and other rituals in the rich tradition of the Church. Thus the papers concerning this particular sacramental ministry were written and delivered at this conference. This book will be helpful for professional ministers of pastoral care; professional pastoral, liturgical, and sacramental theologians; and those engaged in pastoral ministry formation.
