Item Description...
Finding the Root of the Problem * I'm tired of always comparing myself to others. * My husband and I can't stop fighting. * A friend of mine drinks too much. * Some people make my so mad. * My wife is constantly depressed. All of us have struggles in life. We try to change our ways or thought patterns. We try to understand why life isn't going the way it should. Perhaps you, your spouse, another family member, or a friend has needed some help. Visiting a counselor seemed to make no difference. No improvement. No breakthrough. When healing doesn't occur or last, it may be because the root of the problem hasn't been exposed. In What Your Counselor Never Told You, Dr. William Backus reveals the much ignored and denied basis for common emotional and psychological problems. Drawing from decades of research and practice, he shows that many distresses in life can be traced back to one of seven traits or characteristics, most commonly known as the Seven Deadly Sins. The key is understanding which of this traits are more dominant in your life, and therfore troublesome, and then learning how to embrace God's remedy.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Prepare to be changed  Mar 12, 2008
Talk about eye-openers! Dr. Backus claims that most of our problems are the result of (brace yourself, I'm going to use that ghastly word) sin - pride, envy, anger, greed, sloth, lust, gluttony, and all the rest. Believe it or not, he's right. He even includes a "sin test," which I took upon first reading the book in 2001 and again not long ago; it was humbling to be reminded that I still have miles and miles to go.

Biblical, practical, and wise  Nov 28, 2000
I have not yet read this entire book, but I did read a chapter excerpted in "Cornerstone Magazine" this month (November, 2000). I have also read several of Backus's other books, such as "The Hidden Rift With God," which was excellent.

The chapter I read was on the sin of sloth. Backus address the psychological, spiritual, and moral dimensions of depression as it relates to the "deadly sin" of sloth. I found it to be balanced, biblical, and historically grounded in that the author refers to spiritual doctors of the church who have addressed matters of sin and righteousness in the Christian life. He also used a case study to illustrate how "telling ourselves the truth" about our situations and God's character leads to spiritual liberation. This is the main theme of Dr. Backus's works over the years.

The book addresses "the seven deadly sins" and how to overcome them in the Christian life. From what I read in the excerpt, and from what I have read before, I'm sure this is a fine book. I plan to get it and read it soon. Maybe I'll give another review then.
