Fresh, creative thinking has produced a dizzying array of products and services for the modern world. So, why can't such inventiveness be used to solve today's intractable social concerns?
CHA has published a book for people seeking to better understand the theological concepts underlying Catholic health care. The association developed the resource to assist ministry systems and facilities as they form their sponsors, executive leaders, board members, physicians and other staff.
Edited by Fr. Charles Bouchard, OP, CHA senior director of theology and ethics, Incarnate Grace: Perspectives on the Ministry of Catholic Health Care examines Catholic tenets of faith in the triune God; the theological foundation of the Catholic Church; the spiritual function of the seven sacraments; the church's health care ministry and the work of sponsors, especially as it relates to Catholic identity and its expression in health care.
