KIRKUS REVIEW

This is the book we have waited for -- not too technical for the clergyman, professor or social worker untrained in psychology or psychiatry yet sound enough to give him the basic training necessary to carry out a successful program of Christian psycho-therapy. Beginning as it does with the cure of souls, it never loses sight of the necessity of God, Faith and the Church in this program. It studies carefully the mind, instincts, maladjusted minds and modern psychological aids employed by analysts and therapists today, such as analysis, hypnosis, dream analysis, association and suggestion. Every clergyman should own and study this book and it should be brought to the attention of every seminary, school of social work and medical school. For the two former it would meet a definite need as a text book for a course on psycho-therapy while for the latter it would provide a Christian background for doctors.
