Reviews - What do customers think about A Thousand Frightening Fantasies: Understanding and Healing Scrupulosity and Obsessive Compulsive Disorder?
An Excellent Work! Sep 24, 2006
If you struggle with religious scruples (rituals, doubts about God's love for you and His sanctifying work in your life), this book is a masterpiece. It has a wonderful diagnosis of Scrup/OCD, bigraphies of some of the great saints who struggled with it, and options for treating this horrifying disorder. Well written, forcefully illustated. If OCD is ruining your relationship with the Living God, read this book. Let Christ's love transform the way you view God and build a ruthless trust that "He who has begun a good work in you shall complete it until the day of Christ." (Phil. 1:6)
A Thousand Frightening Fantasies: Understanding and Healing Jul 9, 2002
I suppose that because the book states that it is written for laymen I should have not been so disappointed by it. However I did expect more. I think that the book is sketchy, and too many ideas are only hinted at without some depth of explanation. The idea that the author discovered links to the past regarding the topic is interesting, but the material throughout the book is poorly integrated. However if the book provides relief to scrup/ocd sufferers, I praise it for that!
Finally a real book FOR sufferers of Scupulosity Nov 1, 1999
I have suffered with scupulosity for well over 5 years now and by far this book has been the greatest work I have read that sheds a shinning light on scupulosity. Even though I have a rather severe case of Scup/OCD, a 12 on a scale to 15, this book has given me tips and some hope on making it to the next stage in my life. It combines faith and medicine to bring light to an illness the two fields cannot tackle alone. If you suffer from Scrupulosity or have a loved one that does, pick up this book!
