About the Books

In his books, Religion in Medicine Volume I and Volume II, John B. Dawson discusses, among others, situations in medical practice that are influenced by a patient’s. He provides examples of religious-medical situations and a bibliography of pertinent terms.

The purpose of this treatise is: 1) to draw attention to the presence of situations arising within medical practice in which religious beliefs play an important role; 2) to emphasize the fact that most students and many doctors are given insufficient training in such matters, which are of considerable import to a fair percentage of the public; 3) to provide a few examples of what is meant by a religio-medical situation, and a bibliography for further exploration by the initiate in such matters.
