Reviews - What do our customers think?
Best Help for Helpers  Jan 7, 2001
Reading this book changed the way I minister to troubled people - myself included. It is the best blend of the Truths of Scriptures and the discoveries of the discipline of Psychology I have ever read. Begining with "so you want to be a counselor," moving to how believing lies hurts all of us, and ending with solid information on the realities of mental illness and the need for medical as well as psychological and spiritual help, this book offers practical information and usable applications which do not compromise on Scriptual truths. It's about time that fundamental Christians stop being afraid of the findings of modern psychology and realize that the truths of Scripture are being discovered to be just that TRUTHS. "Telling the Truth to Troubled People" paves the way for incorportating the truths found in scripture with the documentation found in psychology. A MUST read for anyone who finds themselves in the counseling position - whether a "professional" or "the one everyone comes to."
