What are people saying about the book?

‘In the world of medicine, when need is great, suffering is profound and resources are limited, doctors and nurses, patients and families may disagree about the best way forward. It’s often helpful for everyone to sit down together, and to make a list of all of the goals we share in common. When we focus on the healing for which we all hope, we often find that we agree about much more than we disagree, and can then work together to find a better way forward. Living Reconciliation demonstrates practical ways for Anglicans to truly listen to and learn from one another, so that we can catch a shared vision of our rich and deep bonds in Christ, and become more effective healers in our wounded and suffering world.’ - The Revd Dr Jacqueline R. Cameron, Department of Religion, Health and Human Values, Rush University Medical Center, Chicago
