This book is a must-read for Christians in healthcare who want to glorify God and bless their patients and communities through their medical ministries. Synthesizing years of research, healthcare practice, and pastoring those in medicine and dentistry, Notes of Encouragement answers the heartfelt and challenging questions of practitioners and students about how to keep their faith an integral part of how they serve. Encouragement has a double meaning — edification and exhortation — both of which feature prominently in the book’s anecdotes, ideas, and practice tips. The format of the book is ideal for use as a devotional or as a training guide for 15-30 minute group discussions.
