Author: Robert Smith
Pastors, elders, and counselors:
Do you feel intimidated when your counselee is diagnosed with a "disease"?
Is your counselee physically ill or is it "all in his head"?
What should your counselee's goals be in dealing with this disease?
What are the purposes and side effects of the medication he is on?
What is most important - being comfortable, free of pain, and having no sickness, or becoming more like Jesus Christ?
Dr. Robert Smith combines extensive experience in medical practice and biblical counseling with a commitment to the sufficiency of Scripture to provide real answers to these perplexing questions. He gives the medical layman information and biblical counsel on difficult issues such as:
- Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
- Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
- Premenstrual Syndrome
- Sexual Problems
Dr. Smith also explores general biblical principles regarding health, illness, and the believer's calling to glorify God in everything. There is hope for the believer - victory, not relief. Relief is not inherently wrong, but it becomes wrong when it is the primary goal. God promises victory in illnesses and trials, not deliverance from them. Even if the illness makes a significant change in one's lifestyle, He is still intending to glorify Himself in it.
