Review

"A superb introduction….The authors consist of a stellar group of professionals (physicians, nurses, administrators), patients, and ethical scholars who provide in-depth commentary on the changing face of health care." — Calvin Theological Journal

"The Changing Face of Health Care will inspire those of us who feel powerless to do anything about our present health care system." — Christian Century

"This book is an informative and engaging collection of perspectives and experiences of people in a health care system, that is increasingly commercialised. As such it contains clear warnings for health care authorities and governments, that think that more "market" could solve the problem of the increasing costs of health care and at the same time maintain its quality." — Ethics & Medicine
