Mad, Bad and Sad
Progress on this book addressing issues at the interface of Christianity and Psychiatry has been very slow due to pressures in the CMF office, but we are now at the stage of typesetting and approval of a cover, and printing should follow very soon. The book will fill an important niche and is written in a style that should be accessible to all CMF members, pastors and well-read non-medics.
You may not be aware that CMF has three websites, all of which are popular and valuable resources.We frequently receive letters from members who have only recently discovered them. If you haven't done so yourself then please do have a look at the following.
- Christian Medical Fellowship (www.cmf.org.uk) has over 2,000 pages including back issues for all our regular quarterly publications going back to the early 1990s. There are articles on every conceivable issue at the interface of Christianity and medicine along with reviews, press releases, news items and a host of links to other useful material on the web.
- Healthserve (www.healthserve.org) focusses on overseas medical ministry and is a one stop shop for those seeking to go on an elective, to serve overseas or to find valuable information and links.
- Ethics for Schools (www.ethicsforschools.org) is a site developed using CMF publications but focussed on helping those doing GCSE and A Level courses on religious studies – which largely now have human bioethics as a major focus.
