Pills for the Soul?
Are pills and medication really God's best for dealing with our emotional state? Should we simply accept the world's wisdom that our emotions are controlled by chemicals in our brain and body – that pills are the best way for treatment? Do anti-depressants reach the root of emotional crisis? This well balanced book intelligently tackles these complex questions. It challenges the widely accepted practices of modern psychiatry in dealing with issues such as depression, mood swings and bi-polar disorders – conditions that are alarmingly on the increase in our modern day, stress filled society. In an age where reliance on medication has reached epic proportions, Pills for the Soul? demonstrates with powerful personal testimonies, scientific reasoning and theological argument that there is another way. The author effectively debunks much of the so called science that seeks to explain away our emotions and soul and instead points us back to the biblical understanding of our spirit, soul and body. This is a compelling book that does not condemn those who use psychiatric medicine, but sensitively guides those in deep need to the abundant way to freedom in emotional healing, which is through Jesus Christ.
