True Stories Illustrating the Sufficiency of God's Resources in Scripture
Biblical counselors have worked for decades to demonstrate that God's resources in Scripture are sufficient to help people with their counseling-related problems. In Counseling the Hard Cases, editors Stuart Scott and Heath Lambert use the true stories of real patients to show how the truths of God's Word can be released to bring help, hope, and healing into the lives of those who struggle with some of the most difficult psychiatric diagnoses.
From pastors and academics to physicians and psychiatrists, a world-class team of contributing counselors share accounts of Scripture having helped overcome bipolar, dissociative identity, and obsessive compulsive disorders, postpartum depression, panic attacks, addiction, issues from childhood sexual abuse, homosexuality, and more.
The book also shows how the graces of Christ, as revealed in the Bible, brought powerful spiritual change to the lives of such people who seemed previously burdened beyond hope by mental and emotional roadblocks.
Foreword by John MacArthur.

Hard Cases is a good tool for the Biblical counselor. It covers a wide range of hard counseling problems and gives Biblical solutions to help the counselor see how to give hope to hurting people. Our great God and His Word must receive praise for using all the counselors in this book. Thank you fellow ACBC counselors for helping me to continue to grow in my counseling ministry.
