Youth Ministers, children being bullied Dec 25, 2007
This is a small book, with such a wealth of information. Not only is my son going through bullying at school, but also at church of all things. They know my child is different. He dosen't know what to say or how to act. When I looked at this book, I thought this is the perfect book for ministers, especially those who deal with youth, middle schoolers, high school. Also for those around church whom see a difference in your child, those that think maybe its you MOM?
Uncommon counsel for a baffling problem Nov 7, 2005
These concise little books by the CCEF faculty are truly amazing. This is a worthy entry in the series.
Asperger Synrome (AS) is becoming a increasingly common diagnosis for a range of serious problems. It can be incredibly frustrating and painful for the parents of a child who struggles with this.
Mike Emlet is uniquely qualified to help parents get some understanding of the issues involved. He has both first-rate theological training (Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary) and also a M.D. from Univ. of Pennsylvania. He was a practicing physican for several years before becoming a full-time counselor and professor.
Dr. Emlet calls attention to the latest medical insights, but also directs the readers to the Christian call to love others in ways that understand AS behavior and that deal wisely with the spiritual challenges of an AS person's life. He reminds us of the value and dignity of every member of the Church.
