Publisher's Description

An infirm, lifetime alcoholic suddenly becomes sober and strong. A patient undergoing open-heart surgery amazes the doctors with a speedy convalescence. A cancer patient given only a few months to live defies the predictions. What accounts for such remarkable recoveries? Is it miracle or medicine?
In this extraordinary book, Dr. Harold G. Koenig presents groundbreaking scientific evidence that provides answers to these puzzling medical mysteries. You will read about the pioneering study that found nonreligious patients with heart disease to be three times more likely to die following surgery than their religious counterparts. You'll learn why saying prayers regularly can be as effective as taking medicine, and why prayer and medicine together are such a potent combination.
Here you will meet the unforgettable patients who taught the doctors so much as they triumph over life-threatening disease, heartbreaking marital problems, dangerous addiction, and more. With simple, practical methods for harnessing the power of faith, this potentially lifesaving book provides an astonishing and immensely effective strategy for healing.

Editorial Reviews

Herbert Benson, M.D. Harvard Medical School, author of The Relaxation Response and Timeless Healing Dr. Koenig has given us a compelling and accurate, highly readable synthesis of the healing power of faith.
Larry Dossey, M.D. author of Prayer Is Good Medicine When the history of the return of spirituality to medicine is written, Dr. Koenig will occupy a high place. Dr. Harold Koenig...is one of a handful of modern scientists who have virtually invented a new field of medicine, and I applaud him.
