Book Review by Gibble Fish
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.
