Healing the Divided Self


Product Description

Healing the Divided Self is not a medical or psychological textbook in the usual secular sense. This is about healing from a radical Christian point of view. It takes note of sceptical science but moves beyond it, seeking to make sense of empathetic experience. It endeavours, under the guidance of Holy Spirit, to understand what is going on in spirit, soul, body, and between people, in living relationship. Dynamic spiritual influences are included in the phenomenology. The book particularly describes four natural psychophysiological processes built into the way God has created us. These are social discernment, the censor in the nervous system, our susceptibility to being entranced, and stress. They enable a significant Judeo-Christian understanding of mental and emotional suffering. The aim is to bring the healing available in the kingdom of God to people who might otherwise trust only secular psychiatry. The book demonstrates how God always provides a way through, if we ask in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ. Breakdowns can become breakthroughs. As we overcome through the grace of God, what we suffer can be used to mature us, so that our whole spirit, soul and body may be blameless for the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ (1 Thessalonians 5:23). Then we shall be equipped to take the place reserved for us.
