This booklet identifies the root of bitterness, equips readers to remove it from their hearts, and helps them to respond biblically to the future hurts, rejections, and trials of life.
Lou Priolo is the director of biblical counseling at Valleydale Church in Birmingham, Alabama, and the founder and president of Competent to Counsel International. A full-time biblical counselor since 1985, Lou is a fellow of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. He lives in Birmingham with his wife, Kim, and daughters, Sophia and Gabriella.
The first time I heard Lou Priolo preach a sermon it was on the topic of bitterness. I remember it vividly because his message was so biblical and I was intrigued that Scripture could be used in such a practical way. His talk was the beginning of my interest in biblical counseling. This booklet is much like that talk and is a gift from God to Christians who struggle with hurts from others. I highly recommend it!
Here is a series of booklets that will provide the pastor and interested layman with a veritable arsenal of material for attacking problems that people have! In them, my fishing buddy, Lou Priolo, has cast his lure accurately and will retrieve many a roaming fish from the problems of bitterness, lying, manipulation, divorce, and wondering about his self-image. All fishers of men should buy and distribute them in counseling and generally. Churches should fill their tract racks with them. They will bless many.
