FOR AS I THINK IN MY HEART SO I AM: Combining Biblical Counseling with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, [Second Edition]

Front Cover
Christian Publishing House, Oct 6, 2016 - Self-Help - 396 pages

 In FOR AS I THINK IN MY HEART - SO I AM, Edward D. Andrews offers practical and biblical insights on a host of Christian spiritual growth struggles, from the challenge of forgiveness to eating disorders, anger, alcoholism, depression, anxiety, pornography, masturbation, same-sex attraction, and many others. Based on Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV): "For as he thinks in his heart, so is he," Andrews' text works from the position that if we can change the way that we think, we can alter the way we feel, which will modify the way we behave.

FOR AS I THINK IN MY HEART - SO I AM offers far more than self-help to dozens of spiritual struggles, personal difficulties, and mental disorders. It will benefit Christian and non-Christian alike. The Scriptural advice and counsel coupled with cognitive behavioral therapy will be helpful even if every chapter is not one of your struggles.

For As I Think in My Heart enables readers to examine the lies and half-truths they tell themselves repeatedly; lies, which as one argues, contribute to mental distress and a broad range of issues in their lives. In this text, Andrews seeks to wash those lies with biblical truth by combining biblical counseling with cognitive-behavioral therapy "to better understand our human condition" and give readers tools to overcome these challenges. This second edition has added five chapters, added material to several other chapters while keeping the page count down by dropping the font size.
