Format: Paperback
This book gives a wonderful overview of the biblical methodology of change. Man is not basically good, just a little dysfunctional. The Christian doctrine of total depravity is correctly identified along with the answer from 2nd Peter 1:3. True hope is given through the transforming power of God's word, not the pandering to pop-culture, nor so called "christian counseling" that employs ineffective (but secularly popular)psyco-techniques. For the truly serious biblical counselor, pastor, or those who are hurting, this book is a must read!

Format: Paperback
While the title may appeal to those like myself who would give ultimate credit to God and His word for help in times of trouble, this book is anything but the truth or helpful. It is basically a grossly misinformed response to the book and seminar, The Wounded Heart, by Dr. Dan Allender. Mr. Bulkley, although he may be sincere, has done a great disservice to the abused through his misunderstanding and misrepresentation of Dr. Allender's work on sexual abuse from a biblical perspective. Mr. Bulkley has twisted many of the principles of The Wounded Heart and, sadly, may steer others away from this tremendously helpful understanding of abuse. As a Christian who is also a counselor, I would highly recommend you avoid Mr. Bulkley's book and purchase the biblically based Wounded Heart and its companion workbook instead. Dr. Allender has helped many face the effects of abuse and begin the process of healing which ultimately leads to a greater understanding of, and love for, God.

Format: Paperback
The title of this book is a reference to Dan Allender's The Wounded Heart,which I review here, and is a not-so-subtle rebuttal of Allender's ideas. The book is part fiction, tracing the story of a fictional pastor's wife, and part non-fiction giving commentary on the issues that the story seems to be intended to illustrate.

THE UPS

Bulkley's key point that the idea of "recovered memories" is not only misused, but has done incalculable damage to many lives, is perfectly valid. It seems superfluous to argue the point considering that contemporary psychology/counselling has long-since moved on. But the point is valid and I suppose there are still some people around who need to hear it.

THE DOWNS

First, the fictional story woven throughout the text places the opposing view in a bad light. Ultimately, the device is simply a dishonest use of fiction. By using a fictional character to slander his opponent, the author avoids both direct critique and the responsibility to back up his claims with referenced quotations and careful argument. The entire development of the fictional character is one prolonged straw man. The author then finally and forever lays to rest this dastardly straw man. Little actual citation or argument is needed courtesy of the fiction device.

Second, the book is one sustained false dichotomy. Either the reader must side with the far extreme of neo-Freudian psychoanalytic theory sans Scripture or he can go to God. A balanced approach to psychology, counselling, and human existence is never contemplated.

Third, the author thinks like an abuser. Every horrible cliché that plagues the reputation of the Christian church on this topic, this book is. In an incident addressed on p.

Format: Paperback
This book is another collection of Ed bulkley's flimsy strawman arguments demonizing any Christian counselor who makes even the slightest use of the science of psychology. Reviewer J. Brackman has Ed Bulkley pegged perfectly.

Is it any wonder that Bulkley's "PhD" is a correspondence doctorate from a non-recognized school? Bulkley's arguments are almost universally dismissed by scholarly conservative evangelicals in the counseling field today.

Dr. Jim Beck, Professor of Counseling at Denver Seminary, writes: "The worst offenders are those authors who not only take an anti-integration position but more specifically an anti-psychology position. Authors who recklessly seek to dismiss the entire clinical wing of psychology as well as all of its scientific production (Bobgan & Bobgan, 1989; Bulkley, 1993) must use contorted and contrived arguments to make their points. Their misunderstanding of basic social science, their selective use of outdated material, their dismissive attitude to the significant contribution psychology has made to ministry and church life in general are all embarrassments to evangelicals who strive to serve Christ within the mental health professions."
