Wise Counsel: Applying the Word of God to Life’s Problems
Find solutions in God's Word for depression, anxiety, bipolar, anger, and many other common problems
Is the Word of God sufficient for dealing with common problems--worry, depression, panic attacks, addiction, or bipolar disorder? Does the Bible even address these conditions? How do you know if a problem is spiritual or psychological or physical? When is professional help needed? This book addresses each of these questions through a careful study of Scripture.
How much training does it take to be able to offer wise counsel to people with serious problems? Not as much as you might think. Whether you are a brand new Christian or have counseled people for years, this book will help you
• discern which parts of a problem are spiritual and which are not
• translate the problem into biblical terms
• find real solutions from God’s Word
