Product Description

In Helpful Truth in Past Places Mark Deckard examines the teachings of leading Puritan writers/theologians who displayed exemplary understandings of human nature and were deeply skilled at applying Scripture in practical ways. With Scripture as their final authority, the Puritans were able to help others with their struggles and problems by grounding their counseling practices in a proper view of the sovereignty of God. In like manner, counselors today with the proper understanding of why people struggle and the provision God makes for these struggles, will be better equipped to guide those seeking counsel and direct them toward God-appointed solutions. Deckard's work is a welcome infusion of sound biblical wisdom brought to the front lines of counseling.

Publisher's Description

Puritan writers-theologians were masters at understanding the nature of human beings and applying Scripture in practical ways to help people. Looking to Scripture as the final authority, the Puritans grounded their own counselling practices in a proper view of the sovereignty of God and the underlying heart issues of people. By understanding why people struggle and the provision God makes for our struggles, counsellors today will be better equipped to guide those they counsel toward God-appointed solutions.

Author Bio

Mark A Deckard serves as Director of Biblical Counseling Training, a ministry of Christian Counseling Associates. He has been involved in leadership and administrative roles with CCA and with the Prison Ministry in York.

Editorial Reviews

Before there was a discipline called psychology, many Puritan authors were outstanding biblical psychologists possessed of clear insight to the human frame. Mark Deckard ably distills the essence of 17th century wisdom for 21st century counselors in areas such as God's providence, personal contentment, repentance and depression.
This book is a goldmine for anyone involved in helping hurting people. We are invited to gain wisdom - a deeper understanding of people & of how God's grace can change and strengthen them through 'the sufferings of this present time'.

Deckard brings us into conversation with these Puritan greats and artfully displays for us their insights into life and relationships. Every Christian counselor ought to pull up a chair and listen in and learn from this conversation.

Our arrogance leads us to believe that the past has nothing to offer by way of insight and comfort for our present struggles. Mark Deckard guides us through the rich pastoral theology of Puritan preacher/theologians such as Burroughs, Edwards, Brooks, Owen, Bridges, and others on emotions, contentment, sin, depression, and more. I enthusiastically recommend this book to seminarians, counselors, theologians, and interested laypeople.
"...it combines the timeless truth of historical theology with solid application for life and ministry today."

""Much is to be learned from them and Mark Deckard guides us in a most helpful fashion by drawing on seven of these 'physicians of the soul'. He directs us to the relevance of the subject by choosing chapter titles that remind us how up-to-date these pastoral concerns are...It should certainly encourage us to read the Puritans more extensively in these practical areas of Christian living."
"...it combines the timeless truth of historical theology with solid application for life and ministry today."


"He does not offer ready-made schemes that counsellors can apply without first absorbing the biblical insights themselves, but thoughtful consideration of the material presented here will enrich Christian living and counselling practice."

    If a Christian helper thoughtfully reads this book, she will better realize the assurances and character of God to share with others. Mark Deckard summarizes the scholarly studies of the Puritans and gives us themes for compassionate, understanding and very intelligent counseling. It is a reference book for Christian counseling. It demonstrates how our personal God knows our hurting hearts.
