A Biblical Understanding of Self-Injury
About: A Biblical Understanding of Self-Injury.
This biblically based book offers help, healing, understanding and hope for those who struggle with the growing problem of self-injury by getting to the heart of the issue. It encourages readers to follow biblical principles when dealing with self-injury rather than going the route of psychotherapy and secular counseling. Secular reasoning is contrary to biblical methodology. Self- abusers don’t have an illness that can medically be diagnosed; what they do have is a faulty coping mechanism that is truly a sinful habit.
