I bought this for a friend of mine who as PTSD. He has been through several programs at VA and personal counseling that didn't really help him. He expressed a desire for something that was spiritually based since he is a Christian and he has thanked me many times for buying this workbook for him. He says it has helped him more than anything else he has done. He now has a passion for starting a veterans group to work through this book.

An excellent resource for the returning combat veteran who has difficulty re-integrating into civilian life.

I love this manual! On page 21, there is a quote I would like to give you: "PTSD is a disorder of warriors, not men and women who were weak or cowardly but....who followed orders and who at a young age put their feelings aside and performed unimaginable tasks..PTSD is a disorder of a good warrior." That quote came from an anonymous, disabled Marine. As a Crisis Counselor, I can tell you this book is excellent not only for the soldier but, for any one who has fought or is fighting a war from within. It could be the soldier or the rape victim or...even you. My prayer is that you know you are not alone and that healing is possible.

Whether the reader is a Christian or not, this book is a "Must Read" for anyone suffering from or involved with PTSD! Chris Adsit, a biology major and Christian counselor, explains the physical and mental aspects of PTSD better than anyone! Chris explains the traumatic situations as if he experienced them himself. He explains how the mind processes trauma in layman's terms, rather than medical jargon. Chris' explanations help the victim and family members understand the triggers that cause flashbacks, depression, and other symptoms. Most importantly, he explains that there is healing through discussion and support. Christians will appreciate the encouraging Bible verses spread throughout the book. Non-Christians, will gain greater insight as to why such evil occurs and that God does not condone or allow such evil to occur, man commits evil. Lastly, Chris provides victims with an understanding that what their country required of them should not equal guilt or shame for the combat actions they were forced to take.
If you know anyone directly or indirectly affected by PTSD, the best gift you could ever give them is this book!

very good manual. We are planning to start a support group at our church and are going to use this manual for those returning from combat and suffering from the trauma that goes with combat for many soldiers, etc.

I am a disabled vet with PTSD from service in Iraq. Ten years late, I am still battling with things that I did and saw over there. This book has helped me put much of it to rest. That is something to talk about. If you are someone or know someone that suffers from PTSD from combat, this is the book for them.

Because I live on the edge of a military post, many of my friends and my closest neighbors are army families. Right now our nearest neighbor is in a military hospital dealing with bodily wounds as well as Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. I bought this book with its Christ-centered solutions for combat trauma for him, but wanted to become informed on this matter of PTSD myself. This self-help manual shows the sufferer how to work through the horrors faced performing military duties. It offers a way out of the dark pit in which many of our troops have been cast. The author wanted first and foremost to help our military sufferers, but the transferable truths can be adapted to any serious emotional trauma.

The text doesn't present a quick fix; one doesn't exist. This is a detailed plan for helping one's self. I believe healing will come faster if the PTSD sufferer works through the manual with the encouragement of a mentor. (A draft copy of a Leader's Guide to this manual can be downloaded without cost from the Internet.)

Throughout the book the reader is reminded that it was service that got him/her into this present traumatized condition and service will help provide an escape route. I especially appreciated the section on page 143, entitled "Why Serve: Your Unique Qualifications and Benefits." The section begins by retelling the story in John 11 when Jesus raises Lazarus from the dead. When Jesus commanded, "Lazarus, come out!" of the tomb, the dead man got up and walked out, bound in his grave clothes. Then Jesus said to those gathered about, "Take off his grave clothes and let him go." As they heal, PTSD sufferers are among the resurrected ones. Having struggled with their own smelly grave clothes, they are qualified to help Jesus help others with theirs.

This manual was required for my PTSD class at LU. What a gem to assist in spiritual healing! The chapters were just long enough to complete in about 15-20 minutes, the content is extremely informative, and the scriptural references were awesome! Although this focuses on symptoms of PTSD, I believe that anyone who has ever experienced deep soul wounds can benefit from the contents of this workbook, and recommend that this become a library fixture.

GREAT text!!!
