Product Description

Self-mutilation is a means of dealing with deep, complex emotional turmoil by disfiguring the body with knives, razor blades, or needles. The sufferings of Jesus Christ, however, and the finished work of the Cross offer hope, security, and healing. This booklet illustrates how those struggling with cutting can apply the gospel (death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ) in practical ways to their issues of cutting.

Editorial Reviews

“The Gospel isn’t just an ethereal idea. It’s not a philosophy and it’s not static. It moves and shapes and transforms the lives of those who by God’s grace alone put their faith in Jesus’ life, death and resurrection. I am grateful for ABC’s work of letting the Gospel bear it’s weight on these real life sorrows and pains.”
I'm grateful to see another biblical counseling resource demonstrate that even in the most complex of situations, like Justine's, we have a profound message of hope in Christ: for our worst sin and shame, he offers forgiveness and cleansing; for the darkest moments of confusion, he gives light by his Word and Spirit; and for the deepest hurts, the one who has been wounded and yet who heals moves us by his mercy to share his love and compassion. Let this resource help you to listen and love more like Christ.
It seems pretty obvious that self-mutilation is a kind of self-inflicted punishment driven by extreme shame and guilt. What better remedy could there be than the gospel of Jesus Christ? By His stripes we are healed! (Is 53:6) Yet Christians often focus those struggling with this problem on their sin and on obedience to biblical commands, not realizing that their law-orientation mostly just adds fuel to the compulsion. This wonderful booklet skillfully shows how the resources of the gospel can resolve the underlying dynamics that lead to self-mutilation. Learn from this example of gospel counseling and give it out to your counselees!
"I am impressed with this resource. Jeremy Lelek can take the most difficult cases we see in counseling offices and the church, and practically apply the Truths of the Bible to these issues in a very refreshing way. Self-Mutilation: Faith in Whose Body and Blood? is easy to read, theologically sound and easy to understand. I highly recommend it."
