Publishers Description
Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a relentless condition, the primary symptom being the occurrence of terrifying ideas, images, and urges that jump into a person's mind and return again and again, despite the individual's attempt to remove them.
Christians who suffer from OCD may grapple with additional guilt, as the undesired thoughts are frequently of a spiritual nature. Yet people may be surprised to learn that some of the greatest leaders in Christian history also struggled with this malady. What did they experience? How did they cope? Were they able to overcome these tormenting, often violent, obsessions? Where did God fit into the picture?
Ian Osborn shares the personal accounts of Martin Luther, John Bunyan, and Saint Therese of Lisieux, as well as his own story, in exploring how faith and science work together to address this complex issue.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
felt a compulsion to write a review  Sep 15, 2008
I Found this book most helpful in gaining a better understanding of this condition, as it pertains to those with religous scruples. The accounts of John Bunyon and Martin Luther who were sufferers of this condition seemed to play a major role as a spring board for the grace of God in their lives. Which was very encouraging, especially when you consider that these men had such an impact on the Christian Faith.
Long needed & AMAZING!!!  Aug 8, 2008
This book is incredible! I wrote several papers on this in college & desperately searched for something like this then, but there was nothing. This author does a phenomenal job of addressing the psychological and theological aspects of OCD/Scrupulosity, as well as a very thorough presentation of some of the figures in church history most impacted by this disorder. I have a degree in Biblical studies and in counseling -even more, this book IS MY STORY! I can say from a personal and professional prospective that there is no other book that addresses the subjects of OCD/Scrupulosity and Christianity as well as Dr. Osborn has done here. This book is especially a gift to Protestant Christians, as many of the other books available pertaining to faith seem to apply mostly to Catholic theology. While those books were in some ways helpful, there are distinct differences in daily experience and theological application for Protestants who suffer from OCD/Scrupulosity. I will be forever grateful for this book!
OCD and Christianity  Aug 2, 2008
This book looks mainly at three religious figures who had OCD tendencies -- Martin Luther, John Bunyan and St. Theresa, "The Little Flower" -- and demonstrates how their faith in God helped relieve them of their anxieties. It is well written and from an outstanding psychiatrist. Only problem is a number of typographical errors in the first edition. Let's hope they sell out and a better edited version is available. Jack Sullivan
A Christian finally addresses OCD  Jul 25, 2008
Finally an experienced psychiatrist with personal experience with OCD tackles the taboo topic of Christianity and OCD. Ian's writing is easy to read, yet well-written with a thorough review of relevant historical facts that keep the young reader interested. His review of the lives of Luther, Bunyan and Saint Therese has inspired me to look further into their own autobiographies. Ian also intelligently reviews contemporary treatment approaches and the pivotal role God has in the life of those with OCD. Highly recommended reading for historical education, empirical reviews which support statements and evidence-based treatment.
