The Gospel isnt just an ethereal idea. Its not a philosophy and its not static. It moves and shapes and transforms the lives of those who by Gods grace alone put their faith in Jesus life, death and resurrection. I am grateful for ABCs work of letting the Gospel bear its weight on these real life sorrows and pains.
Cathy Wiseman approaches every challenge with diligence and perseverance and she has a high standard of excellence for all of her work in Biblical Counseling. This helpful booklet is no exception. Cathy has carefully researched and thoughtfully written about arguably the most difficult behavior pattern we encounter in psychology and counseling. Most importantly, she has done the two necessary things: be theologically sound and utterly practical at the same time.
Cathy Wiseman has done a masterful job in presenting a biblical case in how to deal with those who are struggling with what psychology refers to as Borderline Personality Disorder. Her years of experience and frustration in the secular psychological world led her to pursue a biblical understanding of this topic. Not only is this booklet helpful in giving the reader an understanding of BPD, but it also offers hope to those who struggle with this spiritual condition and help for those who are ministering to them. I think you will find this booklet most helpful in equipping you to understand and minister to those who have been labeled BPD. Thoughtful, thorough, insightful, Biblical and extremely practical are a few of the words that came to mind as I read Cathys booklet dealing with Borderline Personality Disorder. The term itself can be very intimidating until one understands that it is just a label that identifies certain behavioral characteristics. In this booklet, Cathy helps us understand what those characteristics are and how to deal with them through Scripture as the counselor looks beyond the behavior and focuses on the heart that is exposed by the behavior. I think you will find this article most helpful in ministering to those who have been labeled BPD. It is without any reservation that I recommend this booklet to you.
