Reading this book was like taking a huge breath of fresh, crisp, country air. The author points the reader towards the all sufficiency of Scripture in all of the problems the christian will ever encounter. The Bible really does have all the answers we need and this book refreshingly backs this up.

This is an eye-opener. Dr. Ed Bulkley has written a book that should be read and taught in every ministry training school, or church. As a devoted student of God's word, I have always approached secular psychology with an air caution. Now, I have greater reason and sound documentation to remain cautious. This has not only confirmed my suspicions of the failures of human psychology, but it has strengthened my faith in the all-sufficiency of the word of God to heal the human heart, mind, and soul.

Finally, a well written, to the point with no personal attacks whatsoever book using the power of the Word of God and surprisingly the words of actual secular psychologists and psychiatrists to make the point that "the Word of God IS alive and powerful, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of the soul and the spirit and of the joints and the marrow and is a critic of thoughts and intents of the heart." A clear choice is presented and there's no gray area in Bulkley's conclusions. God is either woefully missing what every believer needs in the Bible to satisfy Romans 12: 1,2 or He is telling the truth and has provided EVERYTHING we need as believers to think clearly sans psychology/psychiatry. Pick one and good luck with adding secular humanism's ideas and its "science" of psychology to Christianity at the Bema.

I had a similar experience to one of the examples made up in the book of having a minister refer me to psychiatric help before talking to me first. I had already had psychiatric treatment that wasn't what I needed. I now have a minister who understands the situation better and I am fine, someone who was helping family and talking to people who did not understand the situation. It makes a big difference when people do. I think the minister was sincere but mislead by the "facts" of depression so overly accepted by many ministers nowadays.

I picked this book up thinking I would just pass it on to someone else. I decided to read a few pages of the first chapter and ended up reading the whole book. This is a very courageous look at how Christian Counseling (integrationist) has infiltrated the church and has replaced Biblical counseling. It is a refreshing, straight forward presentation. Also, written in such a way that it is interesting reading. I commend you Ed Bulkley for your bravery and I commend Harvest House for publishing this most needed look at the other side of the Christian Counseling issue. I wish everyone could read this and then make an informed decision about who they choose to counsel with.

Praise God for this book! I had seen various psychologists and psychiatrists since I was young and I wanted to go into the field since none of the specialists I was seeing proved to be of any help. I wanted God to use me in the field to make up for what so many psychologists/psychiatrists were obviously lacking. Then on a whim I decided to admit myself to a psychiatric hospital to get a first-hand look at the way the system was set up. God met me there and upon my release -- (Praise God) I found this book and God used it to complete the work that he was doing in this area of my life. He saved me from a career of destroying the lives of people - my fellow Christians included! I highly recommend this book to EVERYONE!

I believe all Christians need to read this book. We need to stop putting our trust in man. The bible still has the answers once we follow its teachings. Neither Psychologists nor Psychiatrists can positively help Christian solve their problems. Trust God's Word, the Bible. This books helps us to understand that. Pastors, Christian leaders, and Christian Psychologists need to get a copy of this book and read it thoroughly. Its great, It is an eyeopener.

This book has tactfully exposed the deception Christians are experiencing by the untruths or half-truths of godless psychology. I had no idea how pervasive the so-called "science" of psychology is in some "Christian" counsel. I understand now why so many believers suffer and fall away from the church after referal to an integrationist counselor. I thank the author for explaining how psychology and Biblical truth are never compatible. The two belief systems have opposiing views of man's condition, sin, salvation, suffering, etc. Let's get the word out to the church that integrating Freud, Jung, Maslow (and others) with absolute truth in Christian counseling must end.
