Item Description...
Based on scientific studies and his own research, the author documents the health benefits of religious faith and advocates reviving the connection between science and religion

Publishers Description
Drawing from the latest scientific research, as well as numerous illustrative case studies, The Faith Factor offers convincing proof that religious practices can and do enhance the healing powers of medicine. And nationally renowned physician Dale A. Matthews offers a program any patient can follow to incorporate faith into their own healing.

Dr. Matthews points out that encouraging an integration of religious beliefs and practices in medical settings can have important benefits for the entire medical community?from patients and doctors to national health policy makers. He shows how the national trend toward rediscovering religious values has led many patients to use prayer in conjunction with conventional treatment, and that the results have already confirmed that faith and religious practice can be valuable medicine. Finally, Dr. Matthews helps readers explore the connection between faith and medicine in their own lives through methods of prayer, community worship, and study of Scripture.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
God's healing hand  Jan 11, 2006
It is ironic how many people try to use science to disprove a healing God. Meanwhile, this book uses science quite eloquently and articulately to demonstrate the healing power of God. "Faith Factor" is a good longitudinal review of the literature linking faith and health. Although Mathews is a Christian, he tries desperately (and I believe successfully) to keep his own faith from biasing the book by examining how faith in any religion seems to improve health.
Factual/scientific report on praying and medical rcvry  Sep 11, 1998
Gives amazing evidence on the effects of prayer on the health and recovery of medical patients. Includes this charge to the medical profession:"It is entirely possible that, a century from now, people will look back at twentieth-century medicine and say, 'Can you believe that those doctors never prayed with their patients? Just think how many lives could have been saved-if only they had set up intercessory-prayer teams in every hospital as we have today!' Will they be as stunned then that we didn't pray for our patients as we would be today if doctors didn't wash their hands before treating patients' wounds?" (Dale Matthews, The Faith Factor, p. 58) I sent it to three physicials I know to consider incorporation into their practice. This book is not for the religious per se, but the medical profession. Very encouraging!
