Good way to counsel unbelievers coming to Christ or those who are struggling to be free of the past/habitual sin or spiritual depression. I would like to see a more reformed version, maybe send this to Geneva or have it take a vacation in Scotland, but it really is a very helpful resource.

Christ came to free his people. He sits over all principalities and powers. This book teaches the reader how to fight those principalities and powers with the light of Christ in the minds of those trapped by si

AMAZING resource! I went through the Steps to Freedom about 5 years ago and recently felt led to take someone else through them. I found this book before doing so and WOW, my brain hurts after reading, but in a good way. It's full of so much great, biblical, spirit-led information. As a ministry leader for a women's ministry, this is a priceless tool. I encourage any ministry leader, pastor, encourager, mentor, counselor, etc. to invest in this book.

While there is a lot of good information in this textbook, it was very difficult to read past the introduction. In it Dr. Anderson states, "hurting Christians had only one thing in common: None of them knew who they were in Christ, nor did they understand what being a child of God fully meant." Reading this as a father who had recently lost his four year-old son was hurtfull. The author dismissed the pain and grief as misunderstanding God, as if it were my fault.

Anderson takes the techniques and theory behind his well-known The Bondage Breaker and shows how they can be applied in a clinical or pastoral setting. A great deal of the book is given over to practical advice, offering counselors a better understanding of how to actually apply the BB teachings in practice.

Part one was an excellent explanation of how Christian psychologists integrate psychology (natural revelation) with theology (special revelation) to get an accurate picture of man. Part two explains his counseling method "Steps to Freedom in Christ" with which I have some reservations (confessing ancestral sins, etc.).

One of the more frightening things about this book is it reminded me of "From Dusk till Dawn..." You know you start off with a story about a bank robbery and halfway into the movie BAM! Vampires! This seems like a regular book until suddenly BAM! Exorcisms!

Not a fun read, but very informative. Truly a must read for anyone who uses the 7 Steps to Spiritual Freedom.

His steps will most likely not be my model for counseling but there is still a lot of good info here.
