Are medical miracles real and is there a spiritual reason they occur? Is there a place for euthanasia in the mind of the spirital seeker? Can participating in open-heart surgery and dissecting cadavers tell a medical student anything about the soul? Is there an intersection between spirituality and physicality where the two become one?
Let's get more direct with our questions. Is there a place for God in the system of modern Western medicine? Should metaphysical/spiritual principles be part of the medical school curriculum? Is keeping patients alive an appropriate top priority for doctors?The answer to of the above questions is yes.
Is it possible that human beings are more than simply biological creatures, physical entities with a highly developed mind? Could it be that we are also (or even primarily) spiritual entities? If so, could "healing" involve more than "fixing" the body and treating the mind, but also engaging the Source from which many believe we have emerged? These are not inconsequential questions. Neither are the answers found here.

Walsch (Conversations with God) teams up with Cooper (From Doctor to Healer) to explore the intersection of God (or religion) with medical science. Key to their theme is a series of questions, asked in Walsch's previous books, with an emphasis on finding an answer to the question "Who am I?" by consciously creating one's own identity. The authors encourage readers to look beyond their narrow views of God, self, and reality, and to find a greater expression of life's purpose. Especially in their treatment of death, the authors project hopefulness and a sense of continuity that will resonate with many readers; viewing death as part of a "never-ending cycle of existence" helps the seeker focus on the importance of now. Exploring important issues such as how to treat loved ones suffering from dementia and how to handle other ailments at the end of life, this is a timely and important work, penned by two insightful and wise practitioners whose words will be encouraging to all readers.
