This book does 'exactly what it says on the tin'! It is clear, well presented, simple, concise and practical. The book will help all health professionals care for their Hindu patients. The contributors come from varying perspectives: Hindu and Muslim, medical and non-medical, and primary and secondary care.
I found the case studies and the practical examples in the chapters, the websites and the leaflets in the appendices, and 'Key Point' summaries at the end of each chapter very helpful.
The book is great on what I should know and do. But what I longed for was some biblical power to motivate my spirit to follow Jesus' example of loving my neighbour to the glory of God.
