Item description for The Christian's Guide to Psychological Terms by Marshall Asher & Mary Asher...
Overview Churches today are filled with hurting people struggling with serious personal problems. Many pastors believe they are unprepared to deal with these serious issues, so they refer their parishioners to professional counselors. As a result, psychological terminology has invaded the church in the areas of counseling, teaching, and family life. Biblical counseling training provides very little education in psychology, and psychology training provides little or not training in the Scripture. When a Christian needs to know the practical implications of a psychological term, this book is the most biblical and understandable resource available. This book takes the mystery out of these terms, and the Bible's teaching on each issue is clearly presented along with extensive Scripture cross-references to facilitate Bible study.

One of a kind Feb 5, 2008
Exceptional reference book that should be utilized by all Biblical counselors. I recommend it to all Christians.
Dangerous and ignorant Mar 20, 2007
I am a Psychology major at a Christian university who has struggled with Bipolar II Disorder, Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder, and Trichotillomania for many years. I was horrified to learn that not only did a book like this exist, but it was being used as a textbook in a classmate's nursing program.
I did not choose to be mentally ill, nor is it the result of sin in my life. No one chooses to be mentally ill. Scientific research indicates that mental illness can be genetic, or can be the result of trauma in one's life. PET scans show a significant chemical difference in the brains of mentally ill individuals, and psychotropic medication has been used with beneficial results in thousands of cases. I am one of those cases.
As a Christian, an aspiring clinical psychologist and a mental health consumer, I urge my brothers and sisters in Christ to reject this book and its ignorant teachings.
Great Reference Piece Nov 16, 2004
You will not find a more comprehensive listing of psychological terms with an appropriate correlation to what the Bible has to say about the issue anywhere else. This should be in the library of every pastor and every person doing counseling/discipling. Not only does it give a correlation, it also gives a brief game plan of how to help someone put into practice what the bible has to say about their issue. Could be used along with the discipleship manual "Self-Confrontation" to help someone really grow in the Lord.
