Feeling and Healing Your Emotions shows how humanistic sychology often fails to treat the whole person by ignoring his spiritual dimension. Further, it shows how the Bible is perfectly consistent with a psychology that combines findings in modern clinical psychiatry with centuries-old Christian beliefs about the body, mind and spirit.
