Item description for Transformation! How Simple Bible Stories Provide In-depth Answers for Life's Most Difficult Problems by Troy Reiner...
Overview Our society and churches are facing an increasing number of dysfunctional and emotionally hurting people with difficult, long-term psychological problems. Healing for these problems requires more than a few words of advice or some solution-focused therapy; it requires a life transformation. Unfortunately, most pastors and church counselors do not have in-depth Biblical answers for these complex problems. Consequently, most churches refer these problems to counselors outside of the church who rely primarily on secular counseling methods and theories, or psychoactive drugs. What is needed is a simple, yet in-depth, Biblical method for overcoming these complex problems that can be easily applied by pastors and counselors within the church. This book provides just such a method with a new narrative Biblical approach for therapy and in-depth answers for counseling many of these difficult problems. This new method is developed directly from the Bible, relies on the overall direction of the Holy Spirit, and is based on Biblical truth derived from the stories of the lives of well-known Biblical characters. The final conclusion of this book is that God has provided in His word, through the types and shadows interpretation of these stories, all that is required to meet these desperate needs.

Fantastic book! Feb 14, 2010
Transformation! is a terrific study and takes familiar Bible stories to a new depth. Dr. Troy Reiner is the head of Word of Life Counseling Center in Witchita, KS, and his insights into "types and shadows" of Biblical events lend new understanding to much of God's Word we often take for granted. I highly recommend this book for counselors or anyone interested in seeing new depth in Scripture.
