balanced, compassionate and yet convicting
This is a sensitive issue in many Christian circles. I read it as much for my own perspective as for the counseling I knew I would be doing. It was excellent. It acknowledged the pain and suffering in a compassionate way and yet still held people accountable for their response to their situation. It does overlap a lot with the pamphlet on chronic pain but because it is a disputed diagnosis it is well worth having the specialized booklet. It seems even more helpful for those who are in relationship with the person who has been diagnosed as or the person themselves.
