War, poverty, economic crises, unemployment, addictions, violence, divorce, abortion, immorality, fatherlessness, teen pregnancy, increasing depression, information overload... we surely live in a world of overwhelming stress and atmospheric anxiety. Our world is in desperate need of relief and healing. Where can people find help? How about in the ancient words of Holy Scripture? Scripture shares God's desire to liberate and restore all of creation through the healing power of his Word. It is the truth of God's Word that exposes and expels darkness and reveals God's healing love and infinite potential for new life, and it all begins in our thought-life. Truth Therapy is a devotional method for processing Scripture that can help anyone to renew their mind and their life with the truth. Truth Therapy also makes the connection between personal renewal and social transformation as we carry out God's Word in every area of our lives. Scripture promises nothing less than a new creation in Christ to all who believe.
