Body, Mind and Spirit by Worcester & McComb - 1931
Body, Mind and Spirit
by Elwood Worcester & Samuel McComb
First Printing 1931
Toward the first half of the 20th Century, authors Worcester and McComb were founders of what came to be popularly known as the "Emmanuel Movement", an incorporation of the nascent field of psychology into a Christian ministry toward the physical & mental health of individuals as well as their spiritual well-being. The movement saw particular application with regard to alcoholism, though it was neither related to Alcoholics Anonymous or Christian Science. In 1931, Elwood Worcester retired from the rectory of Emmanuel Church in Boston (which he had at one time shared with McComb) to write this volume with McComb on the general integration of physical, mental, and spiritual health, as well as case studies from their experience and scientific & religious justifications for their work.
