"This book for the pastor's parish ministry addresses the major issues hospitals encounter--issues which influence the "bottom line" and thus the quality and character of medical care, issues which are growing with little resolution, and which have secondary consequences for all involved in hospital care and hospital ministry.

After establishing a sound theological understanding of pastoral visitation, the authors examine the theological and ethical homework that the pastor must do as preparation for effectively doing hospital ministry.
