Pretty good critique of modern psychology from a Christian perspective (arguing that they are incompatible and opposed to each other).
A must read for ANY Christian. It truly explains how psychology has NO business in the church or the lives of Christians and confirms completely that God's Word alone is sufficient to help us with all of our supposed "mental health" issues. Sin needs to be called sins, not diseases.

Trust God - Trust His word ~ Great book for understanding the place for psychology in the church.
This book was extremely insightful for me! I know very little about this matter of psychology. This book really opened my eyes to the dangers of it.
