Self-talk can be private speech, thoughts, or external speech, all of which shape emotions and behavior for good or bad.

Great book Aug 27, 2008
This book is straight-forward and spot on....Dr. Stoop presents the world's view of certain psychological issues and then teaches what the Bible addresses on the same subject.

I actually picked this book up at a local drug store. I had all these products in my basket to enhance the outer me. I figured I'd add something to my shopping experience that would hopefully enhance the inner me, and did it! This is a great book if you are in need of an attitude adjustment especially if you are in a situation where the pain of staying the same is greater than the pain of changing. After reading this book I realized that there is "nothing new under the sun" and that God has been suggesting faith, obedience and "cognitive behavior therapy" as part of the strategic plan of becoming a better you for centuries. The author takes a God-help/self-help approach and uses practical cognitive behavior theories in conjunction with scripture to help the reader achieve spiritual and psychological insight. Once again, great book but it only works if you are willing to have the faith and are willing to do the work.

Dr. Stoop combines teachings from the Bible with psychology to demonstrate how principles of good mental health can enable a person to create a better life. This book gets to the practical application of these principles. It literally tells you what to do to put them into practice. Readers are taught how to change self-defeating thoughts into thoughts leading to positive behaviors. Even people who are already familiar with the value of positive self-talk can reap the benefits of this book by being reminded of the power of this potential which is available to everyone. He gives examples of how it has worked successfully in the lives of various people from differenct backgrounds. Unlike a lot of other books in this genre, he devotes a chapter to the abuse of positive self-talk by putting it into a broader context than most authors. Stoop addresses the issue of the sovereignty of God in the matter of faith and positive confession. He goes on to point out that self-talk isn't something we create, it already is going on, the issue is learning how to use this reality to one's advantage.
