The founder of a leading healthcare facility near Seattle, Dr. Gregg Jantz is the author (with Ann McMurray) of numerous books including Hope, Help, and Healing for Eating Disorders.
Jantz (Hope, Help, and Healing for Eating Disorders), founder of the Center for Counseling and Health Resources in Seattle, tackles a topic that deals with an inner impulse that every man, woman, and child will understand and relate to. Jantz skillfully handles addictions nd, abuses of every type as he challenges readers to admit they spend far too much time trying to get what they want so that they have no energy left for what they need. The author dissects the power of wants by closely examining deepest human needs for comfort, reassurance, security, validation, and control; he contrasts the human "gotta have it" impulse with the gifts God provides: patience, endurance, contentment, wisdom, hope, help, and even sometimes answers, noting how these things truly satisfy the soul. Strong on biblical principles for handling life's challenges, Jantz offers an insightful and encouraging resource for any person of faith with any sort of tendency toward excess, which could mean just about anyone. This is a timely and nerve-exposing primer of American life today. (July)Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.
