Religion and the Health of the Public fills a major gap in academic literature on religion and public health. Its innovative concepts provide a comprehensive theoretical framework for understanding and working on the interface between religion and public health. It draws on global health history and practice - from London's 1854 cholera outbreak, to HIV in Africa today, to large and novel hospital and congregational partnerships in the Memphis. Calling for "deep accountability" by religious and public health leaders, it deals with the embodied religious mind, religious health assets, leading causes of life, boundary leadership, congregate strengths, and a healthy political economy - all in the service of transformation.
