Many people battle suspicious thoughts.  In this booklet, the author helps the reader recognize and respond to thoughts like these in a way that is practical and biblical.


In Washington, DC, there are many who are habitually suspicious of others, without good cause. I’ve never known what to give such a person, but Lou Priolo has solved my problem. Biblically wise and faithful instruction, Lou’s booklet Suspicion will be something I give out often.  ~Deepak Reju, PhD, Pastor of Biblical Counseling and Family Ministry, Capitol Hill Baptist Church (Washington, DC)

In this very useful resource, Lou searches through Scripture to find the causes of thinking with suspicion, considers the span of the tentacles of such sin and its consequences, and offers a very practical, biblical alternative of dealing with it. I wish this booklet—which should be in your library—had been written earlier.  ~Jayro M. Cáceres, Senior Pastor of Igreja Batista Pedras Vivas – São Paulo, Brazil, Director of NUTRA – Biblical Counseling and Training Center

Lou has always had a way of taking complex issues and breaking them down into bite-sized, understandable pieces.  This book is another example of his skill. It should prove to be a helpful tool in the hands of people who are struggling with this issue themselves, and those who are seeking to help others overcome unbiblical suspicious thought patterns.  ~Dr. Nicolas Ellen, Senior Professor of Biblical Counseling at The College of Biblical Studies

As we have come to expect, Lou addresses this universal temptation with keen insight into the human heart and rich biblical wisdom.  He not only diagnoses the symptoms and causes of suspicion and paranoia, at all levels, but he also applies the biblical remedy graciously and very practically.  Every Christian will benefit from this brief but profoundly helpful booklet.  ~Tom Pennington, Pastor-teacher, Countryside Bible Church, Dallas, Texas
