$45.99

Hardback
Biblical counselors have worked for decades to demonstrate that God’s resources in Scripture are sufficient to help people with their counseling-related problems. In Counseling the Hard Cases, editors Stuart Scott and Heath Lambert use the true stories of real patients to show how the truths of God’s Word can be released to bring help, hope, and healing into the lives of those who struggle with some of the most difficult psychiatric diagnoses.

From pastors and academics to physicians and psychiatrists, a world-class team of contributing counselors share accounts of Scripture having helped overcome bipolar, dissociative identity, and obsessive compulsive disorders, postpartum depression, panic attacks, addiction, issues from childhood sexual abuse, homosexuality, and more.

The book also shows how the graces of Christ, as revealed in the Bible, brought powerful spiritual change to the lives of such people who seemed previously burdened beyond hope by mental and emotional roadblocks.

Contributors include John Babler, Ph.D., Kevin Carson, D.Min., Laura Hendrickson, M.D., Garrett Higbee, Psy.D., Robert Jones, D.Min., Martha Peace, RN, Steve Viars, D.Min., and Dan Wickert, M.D.

A clear demonstration of the power of the Bible over mental health
5 stars By Joel Radford, Jun 28 2013
Many people think that the Bible is helpful for tackling many day-to-day stressors.  But when major stress comes along, they believe you need serious psychiatric help - help that is not to be found in the Scriptures and your local church.  This is where 'Counseling the hard cases' proves otherwise.  After giving a brief overview of the Biblical counseling movement, a series of case studies is presented in subsequent chapters.  Each of the case studies demonstrates the sufficiency of Scripture in the hands of Christians to tackle the mentally hard cases, including sexual abuse, obsessive-compulsive disorder, postpartum depressions, anorexia, bipolar disorder, dissociative identity disorder and homosexuality.  Each case study is presented by a different counselor and so the book does have a bit of a disjointed feel, and some cases are presented better than others.  But on the whole, the sufficiency of Scripture to deal with the fallen human soul is clearly demonstrated by this interesting work.
