The theology of "the mind-body connection"

A burgeoning number of books in bookstores deal with "the mind-body connection." These new offerings attempt to explain the human condition from the premise that there is a relationship, which is not yet fully understood, between one's consciousness and one's experiences.

Some of these books are authored by medical practitioners seeking a new model on which to base health care. Some show statistical correlations between one's mental state and the ability to overcome or withstand disease and injury. Some admit to a spiritual dimension and even recommend that prayer be taken seriously as a healing method.
