The chapter explores the relationship between spirituality and nursing, drawing out important aspects of contemporary thinking in and around this area. Having laid out the basic parameters of the conversation, the paper draws on the Biblical Book of Psalms and the work of Walter Brueggemann to develop a narrative perspective on spiritual care that can enable nurses not only to engage with the spirituality of their patients, but also to explore new ways in which their own narratives and their own spirituality can become healthily intermeshed within the processes of care.
