 Co-written by a pastor and a physician, the book's first part lays out evidence from dozens of medical studies about the mind-body connection, including facts and statistics about the need for spiritual awareness in maintaining and regaining health. There is startling evidence of how stress disables the immune system, and how individuals with a strong religious orientation are statistically more likely than other patients to recover from a life-threatening illness. The balance of the book is a guide to prayer in the Christian life: "what it is, how to pray, what happens when we pray, and how to pray more effectively."
