"Sometimes, recovery, healing, and spiritual growth are talked about as if they are three different topics. What I like about John's work is that he brings them all together, and we find that no matter what our issues, we are all on the same path. Life's Healing Choices will be a help along that path to all who read it." —Dr. Henry Cloud, author of Boundaries (Dr. Henry Cloud, author of Boundaries and Integrity)
"This is a book whose time has come. John Baker's worldwide ministry and reputation, coupled with a strong biblical approach, make this book a must for anyone who hurts and wants God to heal them. My personal friendship with John and years of involvement in his work have shown me his heart, his calling, and his gifts to the world. I highly recommend this book." —Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, author of Who's Pushing Your Buttons? and coauthor of Boundaries (Dr. John Townsend, psychologist, author of Who's Pushing Your Buttons? and coauthor of Boundaries)

As Christians we need to be real to heal. When we deny our problems or hide them from others and pretend that all is fine, we block the greatest thing Christ commanded us to do: Love God with all our hearts, souls and minds; and our neighbors as ourselves.
This is a must read for all who need to continue being "transformed into the image of Christ."
I applaud John Baker for his wisdom in taking this message to the masses in a way that everyone can relate. It breaks the stereotype of typical recovery programs and applies God's truth to healing choices we can make in our everyday life.
Not everyone is going to take a look at CR in person, but they might be willing to read a book at home. I think that as start reading and they start seeing what is possible, they will want all that is being offered to them here.
I know that during times of anger, depression, stresses that the verses that used with this program have helped me, and helped me grow in my relationship with God.
I don't care what a problem is that people are struggling with, it is a great tool, to help everyone with their hurts, habits and hangups.
John, thanks for writing this book. Thanks for your ministry!
This book would be the equivalent to AA's "Big Book" only in Celebrate Recovery we know our Higher Power is Jesus Christ! There is no true healing without Christ. He is the Great Physician and Counselor!
