Industry Reviews

"This book is an important resource not only for members of hospice and palliative care teams but also for residents in Clinical Pastoral Education programs and anyone engaged in interfaith chaplaincy." - Journal of Hindu-Christian Studies "These ... University of Victoria-based scholars are to be commended for helping medical and care staff overcome widespread religious illiteracy." - Vancouver Sun "As the palliative care movement has grown, it has come in contact with all of the world's major religions, which makes this a welcome book." - International Association for Hospice & Palliative Care News
