Cook, C.C.H. (2012) 'Psychiatry in scripture : sacred texts and psychopathology.', The psychiatrist., 36 (6). pp. 225-229.
The engagement of psychiatry with religion is increasingly important for better understanding of the ways in which religious people find resources to cope with mental disorder.
