Never before have healthcare institutions faced a more chaotic and threatening environment. Rising costs, aging populations, and a lack of medical insurance have forced healthcare in the Western world to undergo a tumultuous change. The Christian healthcare ministry has added problems. With increasingly complex medical-ethical challenges and the continuing struggle to maintain financial viability while insisting on a preferential option for the poor, there is an urgent need for Christian healthcare to refound itself. It must continually re-invent radically new ways to bring Christ's healing gifts to people in need. In Healthcare Ministry, Gerald Arbuckle examines this refounding and offers examples of how it can be done in creative ways.
