Jay E. Adams’ pamphlet (32 pages) offers up some incredibly useful reminders for those of us going through various trials. “Christ and Your Problems” is a perfect title. The book focuses almost exclusively on 1 Cor. 10:13. I found six principles in this book, which Adams doesn’t number as such, however they are clear and I think most readers would agree. The big idea in the book is that: Christ is the answer to all of our problems. Okay, no surprise there. At least, for any of us “Christians” wh ...more

I can see why this booklet was helpful in the past and with older generations, but there is so much of it that is not presented in a relevant way to the post modern generation. I am glad that I read it, partially for historical reasons. The Scripture that is used is definitely still relevant, but the attacks on psychiatry are no longer up to date (most people aren't preaching Freud's beliefs directly and shock therapy isn't as common). However there are newer ways that psychiatry is off the path ...more

I was given this book to read and at first I thought oh what a cute little pamphlet... This will go quickly. Boy was I wrong! This book rocked me on my heels more than a few times but in that loving and firm way God does so perfectly. If you are in victim mode beware as you will find no rest for your whining. I've read it a few times and know I will read it many many more. This is what I call a forever book.

This is a brief but solid tract on why Scripture, the indwelling Holy Spirit, the encouragement of the church, the counsel of a pastor or elder, the love of God the Father and the redeeming work of Christ are all a Christian needs to deal with problems and issues in their life. Trying to add modern psychology or self-help programs to the tools God supplies will only subtract from a Christian's toolbox.

I just finished a re-read of this booklet, and it is a must have for counselors and counselees alike. It exposits 1 Corinthians 10:13, "No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it." We use it at the jail with inmates - concise and to the point.

Great for handing out to people when talking through stuff isn't helping. Sometimes people don't want to change—they just want a sympathetic ear. If that's the case, a book will stop it short, and maybe jolt them out of that rut.

One of the first books I use with my counselees. Very simple booklet but very applicable to having a better understanding how Christ can be seen in and loved through your problems.
