Seven papers by UK contributors treat sociological, psychological, and theological aspects of the spirituality-healing bond in the New Age. A major focus is boundary maintenance issues between recent trends in holistic medicine and British Christian charismatic healing ministries. Bowman (contemporary religions, Bath Spa U. College) traces the continued attraction of Bath as a pilgrimage site for physical and metaphysical healing.
