Descriptions and Prescriptions: A Biblical Perspective on Psychiatric Diagnoses and Medications Reviews

  • Blake
    A very insightful book that I think can and should be a resource for believers, so as to understand the psychiatric world and the perpetual labeling of problems that people have with living life in a broken, sin-cursed world.

    I was initially hesitant to read and review this book. I am both a Christian and someone who has multiple mental illnesses. I wasn't sure which way this was going to go, as some Christian's opinions about mental illness are not particularly helpful for those who suffer from those illnesses. This boo...

    Before I go further with the review, I need to make clear that this is a book written primarily for people involved in ministry – breaking down info and applying wisdom to the situations they would find themselves in. It’s not meant as a patient reference or really even for someone whose l...

    This won’t be a long review since this is a short book. If you are a pastor or church counselor, this book would be a great addition to your shelves or office. It’s a book that is filled with great information for those seeking help with their mental illnesses. It’s filled with Biblic...
