Rewiewed by Heather Marshall Negahdar (SUGAR-CANE 12/10/04)
This book has a strong biblical foundation in that the author finds the solution to man's problems in the Word of God. I especially appreciate that he addresses the time element involved counseling. Problems develop over years and solutions to them may take years. His advice to pastors is to be patient when counseling those who are hurting- healing takes time. The essence of healing is to discover the false beliefs and assumptions that Satan has deceived us with and replace them with God's truth. In this he is very similar to Larry Crabb in that truth is the ultimate cure for wrong thinking. Wrong thinking is the cause of bad emotions. Chapter three, however, is pretty basic stuff. It is hoped that we do not have to go through the plan of salvation. Despite the slow start, the book improved towards the end.
