Reviews

"A no-nonsense scientific assessment of the alleged benefits of religious practice on health outcomes, providing a welcome dose of skepticism and exposing over inflated and unsubstantiated claims. Sloan has performed a valuable service [with] Blind Faith...Highly recommended." --Journal of the American Medical Association"A compelling book about attempts to blur the boundary between religion and medical practice." --New York Post"Sloan has done well to sound the alarm, while providing an excellent primer on how medical evidence should be collected." --Kirkus Reviews, (starred review)"At the heart of this fascinating book is a thorough scrutiny - and demolition - of hundreds of academic studies...The best account of the use and abuse of statistics in medical research that I have ever read." --The Financial Times"An honest and unsentimental assessment...that should garner the attention of medical practitioners, clergy, and the faithful alike." --Reverend Robert Edgar, National Council of Churches, USA
