  • Counselors Guide To Christian Mindfulness

    $24.99

    Mindfulness is now a therapeutic touchstone for a range of emotional issues, from mild distress to the treatment of trauma, emphasizing quiet, analog practices that balance out the busyness of our daily techno-heavy lives. Christian mindfulness is about making time, on purpose, to turn our whole attention to God so that we can hear His still small voice above the chatter. It is a sense of awareness which encompasses the thought life of the person leading them to become more aware of their thoughts with a conscious, non-judgmental posture.

    In A Counselor’s Guide to Christian Mindfulness John Trent and Regina Trammel offer counselors training in mindfulness-based therapies such as dialectical behavioral therapy, acceptance and commitment therapy and mindfulness-based cognitive therapy. These therapies have been shown to be highly effective in the treatment of many mental health issues, blending elements in the fields of neuroscience, social science, and religious training. They offer a Christian perspective that will be extremely helpful in helping Christian counselors and therapists to confidently use mindfulness interventions with those they treat and help.

    Christian mindfulness means that we turn our minds to God and he transforms our thoughts and emotions as we unite our will, our mind, and ultimately, our control over to him as the perfecter and healer of our faith.

    The practice of Christian mindfulness can be tremendously helpful in developing biblical skills to help clients manage their intrusive and stressful thoughts, emotions, relationships, and challenges. This book fills a gap for Christian counselors and therapists who are eager for a resource that teaches mindfulness skills from a purposefully Christian and biblical perspective.

  • Peace After Combat

    $17.99

    It could be your neighbor, your coworker, your son, or the woman sitting next to you in church. When combat veterans return from war, they’re often confused. They struggle to reconnect with their families; the cheering crowds and smothering hugs make them want to jump out of their skin. Sometimes they even long to return to the hell of deployment.

    What they’ve experienced can radically change how they view themselves, others, and the world at large. They may have never seen so much hurt, suffering, death, and destruction. It leaves them asking Where is God?

    In Peace after Combat: Healing the Spiritual and Psychological Wounds of War, a veteran officer and board certified clinical psychologist, who has been in countless sessions with soldiers and their loved ones, shares personal first-hand accounts, proven exercises, and Biblical truth to help combat veterans and those who care to heal both emotionally and spiritually.

  • Heart Of Anger

    $16.99

    How should Christians understand anger, evaluate it, and respond for good?

    Each person experiences anger-in their own hearts and in the words and actions of others. In this doctrinal, pastoral, and practical book, Christopher Ash and Steve Midgley explore the Bible’s teaching about anger through biblical examples such as Moses, Saul, David, and the Ephesian church as well as present-day accounts. Though sometimes right and godly, anger is more often rooted in greed, lust, love of control, or pride. Only once the source of anger is recognized can the gospel of Jesus Christ-God’s perfect wrath poured out on his Son for the sins of many-bring true freedom, transforming a heart of anger into a heart filled with the love of God.

  • Keeping The Cross Central (Revised)

    $14.99

    Teen Challenge, also known as Adult and Teen Challenge, was founded as an evangelistic outreach to drug addicts in Brooklyn, New York City. As a holistic Christian ministry with the life-changing message of the gospel, this faith-based rehabilitation program was created with the vision that God can redeem the whole person, starting on day one of the program. This unique approach has produced success rates of over 70% for those who complete the rehabilitation program. However, as Teen Challenge has grown worldwide, with over 1,400+ centers in 129 countries, some centers are now turning to secular methods in order to access government funding. As co-founder of Teen Challenge, Don Wilkerson raises a warning flag on this mission drift: the power of the Cross, which brings about a changed life, must be the priority in treating drug addiction; if the Cross is not central to the mission of any Teen Challenge center, then it is not worthy of using the name Teen Challenge. The ministry must never lose its vision and focus in bringing men and women to Christ-through the gospel and discipleship-and stay faithful to the original mission which the founders stood upon.

  • Freedom Starts Today

    $16.99

    Every church is filled with people who are struggling–often secretly–with addictions of all kinds. Porn, pills, food, money, alcohol, social media, body image, status, sex, anxiety–the list goes on and on. John Elmore is no stranger to addiction. Fifteen years ago, he put a loaded shotgun to his head and later had three doctors tell him he was going to die of alcoholism. More than 15 sober years later, he leads the world’s largest weekly recovery gathering, re:generation, where people journey toward healing in Christ.

    In Freedom Starts Today, he makes a huge promise to the addicted: you can be free from your struggle, and much sooner than you may think. Through easily digestible readings grounded in Scripture and the practice of daily surrender, Elmore shows you how to break the cycle of addiction, make war against sin, and find your identity in who you are and not the shame of what you have done–one day at a time.

    Leave behind struggles, addiction, and shame as you walk in the power of the Holy Spirit and in the love, mercy, and forgiveness of the God who is not only by your side but on your side.

  • Unwanted : How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way To Healing

    $16.99

    Unwanted: How Sexual Brokenness Reveals Our Way to Healing is a ground-breaking resource that explores the why behind self-destructive sexual choices. The book is based on research from over 3,800 men and women seeking freedom from unwanted sexual behavior, be that the use of pornography, an affair, or buying sex.

    Jay Stringer’s (M.Div, MA, LMHC) original research found that unwanted sexual behavior can be both shaped by and predicted based on the parts of our story–past and present–that remain unaddressed. When we pay attention to our unwanted sexual desires and identify the unique reasons that trigger them, the path of healing is revealed.

    Although many of us feel ashamed and unwanted after years of sexual brokenness, the book invites the reader to see that behavior as the very location God can most powerfully work in their lives. Counselors, pastors, and accountability partners of those who experience sexual shame will also find in this book the deep spiritual and psychological guidance they need to effectively minister to the sexually broken around them.

  • Breaking Toxic Soul Ties

    $15.99

    Going through this world in relationship with other people inevitably creates connections in our inner being called soul ties. When these relationships are loving, supportive, and nurturing, positive soul ties are created. But if the relationships become abusive or manipulative, or cause rejection, they can create a toxic brokenness within the soul that we carry with us, even long after the relationship ends. If these toxic inner soul ties are not broken, we will experience failure, fractured relationships, and even health problems throughout life.

    In Breaking Toxic Soul Ties, Tom Brown describes his own story of rejection and the process of inner healing he experienced. He helps you to identify and diagnose toxic relationships as he breaks down the difference between positive and negative soul ties. He also shows why toxic soul ties develop and how they can only be broken by a process of inner healing through confession, forgiveness, and prayer. The truth is, unless your self-image is firmly rooted in the truth of your identity in Christ, you will always be susceptible to bad soul ties. Tom Brown describes the way for you to move forward in life and leave pain and brokenness behind for good!

    $17.99

    Keys to Integrating Theology and Psychology in the Treatment of Complex Traumatic Stress

    In this book, A. E. Gillies seeks to educate the Christian church (both professionals and laity) to identify the wounded warriors who have suffered such terror in order to hear their stories and to expand our understanding of how repeated terrorization can create complex traumatic stress.

  • Self Centered Spouse

    $5.99

    Anyone who is married is already a self-centered spouse…but when this all-too-common sin becomes severe and chronic, it results in a marital environment of abuse or neglect – leaving the victimized spouse feeling trapped and hopeless. But how might this hopelessness change if we knew that Jesus addressed just such chronically broken relationships?

    Brad Hambrick examines Jesus’ teachings about relationships to show us how we can turn the other cheek while keeping away from unhealthy and destructive paths. He identifies different types of self-centered spouses to show us what we are dealing with, shared strategies for interacting with them, and points to evidences of genuine change to bring hope to anyone living with a chronically self-centered spouse.

    This booklet is part of The Gospel for Real Life series by the Association of Biblical Counselors (ABC) and applies the timeless hope of Christ to the unique struggles of modern believers.

  • Helpful Truth In Past Places

    $19.99

    Has secular Psychology left you stumped? Yet you still need advice on how to comfort and counsel those who are struggling with difficulties each day, be it struggling with sin; finding purpose in life, emotions that you dont know what to do with. The Puritans have much advice to give us today as they sought to make their teaching relevant to those facing issues such as poverty, loss of children, abuse and alcoholism. The truths they proclaim are as relevant to us today as they were then whether you are the one struggling or the one counselling. At the same time they did not allow experience to be their final authority but Scripture. Mark Deckard uses specifically chosen Puritan books and seeks to apply their principles to Biblical Counselling concerns to a contemporary setting.

    Additional Info
    This book is really a text book for anyone involved or interested in Christian counselling. Both the authors teach the subject at a theological seminary in the States. Their influences include Jay Adams, a leading Christian psychologist, and Francis Schaeffer. Section 1 helps to make a case for a different style of counselling, based on the Bible and on Christian principles. Only a Biblical framework can explain the why? of human behaviour. The approach is therefore holistic as it tackles the heart of the human problem – the problem of the human heart. Section 2 gives background as well as practical
    guidelines to those interested in becoming Christian Counsellors. Section 3 outlines the Counselling Process and give practical worksheets and guidelines for helping someone out of their situation. This model of psychology is very much more prescriptive than anything in secular counselling, or in many Christian circles, but the authors are consistent in their approach and they have been teaching the material for many years. There are good appendices to aid the reader.
