Daniel E. Fountain
Thirty years on mission in Central Africa changed Dr. Daniel Fountain’s thinking about his professional training, about current medical practice overseas and at home, and about the responsibility of the entire Christian community to promote health initiatives. Digging into biblical precepts and patterns, he has developed a theology of human wellness that in some ways rebukes his own profession, and at the same time summons churches to recover their rightful role as partners with physicians. His diagnosis of shortcomings by both will unsettle traditionalists. His suggested remedies will be controversial. But gainsayers will be hard pressed to refute the evidence from his diligent research and devout experience. From the publisher.
