He always incorporates God into his counseling and this has some great perspectives and topics and ideas Arrived ahead of schedule and is just what my husband needs right now. He’s seeking his Master’s degree in psychology and doing his practicum at a Lutheran Family & Social Services Counseling facility. He always incorporates God into his counseling and this has some great perspectives and topics and ideas. Bringing psychology into the realm of faith-based learning is always difficult in today’s society of “be careful what you say” so this book is a great tool for that.

Fantastic reference for all in pastoral care. This tome is filled with everything imaginable when it comes to helping people with their problems; and it comes from a Christian perspective. It doesn’t have remedies such as “pray away the gay” or “just have faith.” Rather, it educates the reader on the type and scope of mental illness and other conditions (domestic violence, homosexuality, drug abuse) and gives practical advice on how to counsel people with these problems. Highly recommended.
