It would be nice to think Christian faith was the ticket to the easy life – stress-free and always smiling. Wholly Coping is a book written for those who know that is not true. It doesn’t match our experience of life, and it is not biblical. We have victory in Jesus, but we won’t experience it fully until heaven. Even Jesus suffered the effects of stress.
This book is designed to help you develop skills and strategies for coping with life’s challenges. Christian bookstores are full of self-help books, and it can be hard to work out which ones are useful and which are not. Many are based on personal ideas and theories, which sometimes can be inspiring, but are not always reliable. Wholly Coping stands out from the crowd because it combines the results of decades of clinical research with a deep understanding of the Bible. We have used an evidence-based medical and psychological approach to build on a solid theological foundation.
In order for Christian people to overcome distress they need to have a real and relevant relationship with God, and excellent skills in thinking and behaviour, as well as an understanding of life’s meaning. This book will help you learn practical strategies for moving towards Christian Wholeness.
