Wardle is a prof at the university I attend so I've heard him lecture on the material he writes about in this book. Amazing perspective on working with our fellow wounded brothers and sisters in Christ.

Wounded: How to Find Wholeness and Inner Healing in Christ written by Terry Wardle review by Emily P. Elam March 22, 2008
My mother's words shouted from the introduction "Get tough or die!" Surely this was not another book about another whinny adult male asking forgiveness from his wife, using depression (guilty conviction) and a stay in the hospital (incarceration) to cause his case to seem closed.
What sin, that had caused depression, was he hanging onto, that he `repeatedly sought healing and freedom'. He thought the depression was `certainly the greatest trial of his life to date'. Rather, I think that what caused the depression with his reaction was his greatest trial. He wrote that he was well again, not that he was healed. I know about healing. His schedule at the Rapha Unit of Cedar Springs Psychiatric Hospital would be interesting reading.
Mr. Wardle sites many Biblical versus that allows us to speak informally with God about our feelings in order to unburden ourselves of our `wounds', especially the wounds of childhood. Since we parent as we were parented, the cycle of ignorant parenting needs to be broken. This book could be considered as one the `instrument's of grace' to help us `train up a child in the way he should go.' You may find one of the other examples of persons with self inflicted wounds to which you identify. Admitting your problem, is half the solution. From there, you could search the sited scriptures. Then, be on your way to inner healing in Christ.
Writing is a form of therapy. Mr. Wardle continues to write, even planning his next book of `unresolved issues' in the introduction. His writing continues to show high anxiety workaholic levels with his misuse of the connector words `and' or `but'. His thoughts go continually without stopping at the periods by starting the next sentence with the word `and'. His writing would have more authority if he would stop one sentence to allow the reader's brain to settle that idea. Then begin the next sentence anew. Do not begin a sentence with the word and. Let the word `and' connect two objects such as salt and pepper. The word `but' should show opposing thoughts or actions in one compound sentence. #
