Eye-Opening and Well Written Sep 25, 2008
Praise God for this book! I had seen various psychologists and psychiatrists since I was young and I wanted to go into the field since none of the specialists I was seeing proved to be of any help. I wanted God to use me in the field to make up for what so many psychologists/psychiatrists were obviously lacking. Then on a whim I decided to admit myself to a psychiatric hospital to get a first-hand look at the way the system was set up. God met me there and upon my release -- (Praise God) I found this book and God used it to complete the work that he was doing in this area of my life. He saved me from a career of destroying the lives of people - my fellow Christians included! I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE!
Truly Great Aug 14, 2008
I believe all Christians need to read this book. We need to stop putting our trust in man. The bible still has the answers once we follow its teachings. Neither Psychologists nor Psychiatrists can positively help Christian solve their problems. Trust God's Word, the Bible. This books helps us to understand that. Pastors, Christian leaders, and Christian Psychologists need to get a copy of this book and read it thoroughly. Its great, It is an eyeopener.
Exposing the Cult of Psychology Mar 19, 2008
This book has tactfully exposed the deception Christians are experiencing by the untruths or half-truths of godless psychology. I had no idea how pervasive the so-called "science" of psychology is in some "Christian" counsel. I understand now why so many believers suffer and fall away from the church after referal to an integrationist counselor. I thank the author for explaining how psychology and Biblical truth are never compatible. The two belief systems have opposiing views of man's condition, sin, salvation, suffering, etc. Let's get the word out to the church that integrating Freud, Jung, Maslow (and others) with absolute truth in Christian counseling must end.
An Eye-opening Book Feb 18, 2008
This is an eye-opener. Dr. Ed Bulkley has written a book that should be read and taught in every ministry training school, or church. As a devoted student of God's word, I have always approached secular psychology with an air caution. Now, I have greater reason and sound documentation to remain cautious. This has not only confirmed my suspicions of the failures of human psychology, but it has strengthened my faith in the all-sufficiency of the word of God to heal the human heart, mind, and soul.
A must read by all! Sep 22, 2007
Reading this book was like taking a huge breath of fresh, crisp, country air. The author points the reader towards the all sufficiency of Scripture in all of the problems the christian will ever encounter. The Bible really does have all the answers we need and this book refreshingly backs this up.
