More About the Author

Dr. Dan B. Allender has pioneered a unique and innovative approach to trauma and abuse therapy over the past 25 years. Central to Dr. Allender's approach are the categories of Faith, Hope and Love and their converse betrayal, ambivalence, and powerlessness. Through engaging these categories and in learning to identify them in one's personal story, healing and transformation can occur by bridging the story of the gospel and the stories of trauma and abuse that mark so many.

Having received his Master of Divinity from Westminster Theological Seminary, Dr. Allender went on to earn his Ph.D. in Counseling Psychology from Michigan State University. Dan taught in the Biblical Counseling Department of Grace Theological Seminary for seven years (1983-1989). From 1989-1997, Dan worked as professor in the Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling program at Colorado Christian University, Denver, Colorado. In 1997, Dan with a cadre of others founded The Seattle School of Theology & Psychology in order to train therapists and pastors to more effectively serve in the context of the 21st century. Dan served as President of The Seattle School from 2002-2009.

Dan continues to serves as Professor of Counseling Psychology at The Seattle School. He travels and speaks extensively to present his unique perspective on sexual abuse recovery, love & forgiveness, worship, and other related topics. Dan is the author of The Wounded Heart and The Healing Path and has co-authored several books with Dr. Tremper Longman (Intimate Allies, The Cry of the Soul, Bold Love and Bold Purpose).

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Robert W. Kellemen on March 23, 2006
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
For some reason this work by Allender and Longman is less well known than others of this interesting writing tandem. That's a shame. "Bold Purpose" uses their by-now common co-writing style of in-depth exegesis alongside intriguing narrative story telling. This time they apply their skills to the book of Ecclesiastes and the topic of our frantic search for meaning. Like Solomon, Allender and Longman expose our broken cisterns along with enticing us to turn to Christ, our Spring of Living Water. This book is well worth getting your hands on and digging through if you have ever asked, "What's the point?"

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," "Biblical Psychology," and "Martin Luther's Counseling."

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By W. Eugene Sampley on September 6, 2009
Format: Hardcover
Dan Allender and Tremper Longman III have teamed up in Bold Purpose with their unique styles for a great presentation of the practical application of Ecclesiastes, a book often ignored, misunderstood and/or misused. If you want to learn more of what God taught Solomon, the wisest man that ever lived, and understand God's message to all who want to live life as God intended, this is a must read!
