Hostility to Hospitality is one of the first books of its kind to explore the secular-sacred divide and the hostilities threatening medicine, offering a path forward for the partnership of modern medicine and spirituality. Drawing from interdisciplinary scholarship including empirical studies, interviews, history and sociology, theology, and public policy, the authors argue for structural pluralism as the key to changing hostility to hospitality.
