Rich Thomson has written a monumental work which will greatly enhance biblical counseling. I know no other work which establishes a biblical model for counseling from Scripture and then applies that model to the mental disorders in the DSM IV. This book should be the manual and textbook for each pastor and counselor and should be seriously considered the textbook for every Bible college and seminary that desires to teach biblical counseling. I highly recommend the book.

I would recommend this great reference for the shelf of any pastor or minister who wishes to protect God’s flock from the lies and falsehoods that the “mental health” world puts on unsuspecting parishioners, and to point them to the complete adequacy of the Scripture and the sanctifying work of the Holy Spirit.

The Heart of Man and the Mental Disorders has transformed both my personal and professional life. Biblical Counselors and pastors will benefit from the instructions on how to use the Bible to effectively counsel immaterial issues. I am amazed how comprehensive the Biblical Framework method Rich Thomson introduces is for a wide variety of situations and circumstances. Both I personally as well as our students have greatly benefitted from his teaching ministry as well as this exceptional work.
