Summary "Spirituality in Nursing is thought provoking and Barnum offers some excellent material and food for thought."--Journal of Christian Nursing. "This is a very thought-provoking book that asks many questions, often without answers. It could be used in an undergraduate or graduate course on spirituality or death and dying, or as in-service material in hospitals and other healthcare agencies. A very interesting chapter discusses near death experiences (NDE), a phenomenon that has begun to be accepted and has garnered more study." Score: 95, 4 stars --Doody's.
