Psychology Plus Spiritual Growth Adds Unique Dimension to Self-Help Bookby Greater Diversity News July 23, 2012 0 comments
With a hands-on approach, Barbara Derrick inspires a new, challenging, ultimately fruitful method for one’s progress in becoming whole and Christian – Barbara Derrick’s Your Spiritual Growth Handbook (published by iUniverse) new book contains a five week plan that is a hands-on approach that allows the reader to record his or her feeling and actions in problem areas. These problem areas evolve into strengths that ultimately become the Spiritual Growth readers are seeking.
A step-by-step approach, guided by a minister/therapist that combines modern psychological insights and Christian thought, this book encourages seeing one’s challenges as opportunities for Spiritual Growth. It lets readers’ personal relationship with God attain a clearer, less “burdensome,” dimension – paradoxically, as personal knowledge in this field grows, the load gets lighter – a key that is the essence to illumination and wisdom.
By allowing modern psychological processes into the creation of a Spiritual Growth agenda, the author brings readers one step closer to a breakthrough in what could be the final status of Christian growth. As self-help books go, Derrick stands in a unique new field fostering the marriage of science and religion into a holistic, ultimately truthful dimension which God meant for them.
