Daniel E. Fountain’s forty years as a medical missionary in the Congo and his many case studies have given him ample proof that faith and hope in God and prayer have a positive effect in healing the sick. In his book, God, Medicine and Miracles, Fountain emphasizes the importance of building right relationships with God and with others.

His kind of medicine doesn’t just give you a prescription, a five-minute pep talk, and send you on your way. He is interested in treating the whole person—body, mind and spirit.

He writes about how positive attitudes lead to positive thoughts, which in turn can have a positive effect on the immune system. Though not all diseases are curable, Fountain believes a positive attitude through faith will give the person inner peace. This is an inspiring and helpful book written in a simple and practical way and well worth reading. The appendix provides helpful advice on how to treat the sick and dying.
