It is written in an easy-to-read format that explains in friendly understandable nonclinical terms what causes PTSD (Post-traumatic Stress Disorder), explains the clinical terms often used by therapists and psychologists treating it, and reveals new information about the science behind why so many people today are affected by it. Then at the end of each chapter the author gives specific and concrete suggestions and solutions that promote the healing process.Finally the author tackles the tough questions that inevitably arise, about faith and the nature of God. And though written from a biblical perspective she explains why a legalistic and fear-based view of God often comes from not understanding grace, God’s love, and the redemptive nature of suffering itself. She debunks myths you might have about the role of God in the bad things that are happening to you and those around you, and the skewed view of good and evil that has resulted from false teachings that are counterproductive to the healing process.If you are a Christian in the role of helping others heal but do not have a clinical background this is a wonderful resource. But the principles are written for anyone who believes in a Higher Power and has sensed the presence of evil in the world.If you are a person simply suffering from intense emotional pain, this is the book for you.
