Pastoral Care to Muslims: Building Bridges addresses the fact that more and more often pastoral care workers are encountering Muslims in hospitals. This is the guidebook you need to provide the spiritual support these patients are able to accept—support that doesn't conflict with their religious affiliations. The first section of Pastoral Care to Muslims provides an outline of the major beliefs of Islam, chiefly those that relate to illness and dying. The Koran is freely quoted to support these beliefs and the practices that accompany them. The second section of the book delivers a set of field-tested guidelines for the practice of pastoral care to hospitalized Muslims. The book's two appendixes supply you with samples of the kinds of prayers that are acceptable to Muslims.
