At the heart, addiction is a spiritual problem. It demands a spiritual solution. No stranger to this topic, Ed Welch gently confront struggling addicts with Gods truth, both about their self-deception and the surprising grace of Jesus, who makes all things new. This study is truly centered on the person of Christ --Dr. Tim Clinton, President, American Association of Christian Counselors
Dr. Edward Welch has pioneered the movement in biblical counseling from behavior modification into a heart centered on worshiping the one and true living God. Dr. Welch accomplishes this shift by revealing the glory of God in his redemptive work and taking it out of the hands of self-sufficiency. With Crossroads, Dr. Welch ahs found a way to morph the addicts story into the Story of God by not letting the addict identify himself with his current sin of addiction, and by calling the addict to repentance and dependence on Christ. --Pastor James Noriega, Shepherding Pastor Specializing in Addiction, Mars Hill Church, Seattle, WA
