Format: Paperback
This lovely, compassionate book is also one of the best written books I have recently read from a Christian thinker. Dr. Zeiders avoids the typical anti-intelllectual platitudes of the Christian right and the New Age movement. Instead, he presents spiritually reasoned arguements supported by his case studies and his own careful and extensive study of the psychology of forgiveness.

Although written primarily for Christian psychotherapists, this is a book that will benefit clinicians from many diffrent practices.

This collection of essays marks the debut of a significant Christian thinker. Although Dr. Zeiders dispalys a mastery of psychological theory and psychotherapeutic technique, he is a much deeper thinker- one of those rare writers whose work influences many kinds of thinkers, writers, and poets.

In the future, this book will be mined by novelists, philosophers, theologians, criminologists, artists, poets and human beings suffering through the vicissitudes of everyday life for its spiritual insights into the human heart.

Dr. Zeiders will inevitably be compared with psychologists like M. Scott Peck, but he has more intellectual heft and literary flair- imagine a psychologist with the literary and spiritual depth of C.S. Lewis or G.K. Chesterton. He offers hope by the simple (though not easy) act of forgiveness for human beings who have sunk to spiritual and psychological dregs.

"The Clinical Christ" is a manifesto for Christian therapists seeking a complex, intellectual, and deeply spiritual framework for transfroming human pain to human hope.

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Stephen Aiena on February 5, 2006
Format: Paperback
At a time when the perennial struggle to reconcile Science and Religion has been fueled by "Intelligent Design" campaigns, Dr. Zeiders' work proves that these two realms of human experience need not be antagonistic. Not since reading Thomas Merton have I encountered a Christian author so clear and objective in his thought, tolerant in his views, powerful and poetic in his expression, and so firmly rooted in his faith. Dr. Zeiders' Christian orientation is undeniable, yet he speaks with a voice of reason that transcends religious and scholarly differences. I highly recommend this work to anyone, Christian or no, seeking to unite rationality and spirit in their personal or professional work. Here you'll find inspiring case studies, thought-provoking discourse, and practical counsel.

Format: Paperback
The author deftly synthesises what most in his profession sadly view as competing systems. I found this to be a brilliant and insightful book. In an age of polarizing forces of materialism, egoism, fundamentalism, and a myriad of other destructive -isms, I found his to be a voice in the wilderness.
