Psychobabble: The Failure of Modern Psychology--And the Biblical Alternative

From Bestselling author Dr. Richard Ganz Why is it that many evangelical preachers shout from the pulpit about God's power, but then shuffle their emotionally troubled members off to the closest therapist? Both church leaders and laypersons seem to believe that the psychological "experts" have the answers for the wounded hearts and souls of God's people. And when churches do offer counseling, it often is tinged with the secular psychology and psychotherapy...

Legal drug pushers

Dr. Ganz has the credentials to speak loud and strong in exposing the deceptive world of psychoanalysis. One of the greastest threats in our society today is the proliferation of legally prescribed mood and mind altering drugs. They do far more harm than good. Dr. Ganz shows that there are far better alternatives that actually set people free from their illness.

An Insider's View

If you really believe 2 Tim 3:16-17 and 2 Pet 1:3-4, but are confused by the church's approach to counseling then this book is for you. Ganz provides a great insider's view to the problem with the integrationist philosophy. Let Christ be magnified!

Excellent Book About Biblical Counseling

Ganz's book has shown me that pursuing a higher degree in the field in which I already have an undergraduate degree, namely psychology, would be futile. I always felt that the line between "Christian" psychology and secular psychology was very blurred; nevertheless, Ganz has confirmed my belief that God's Word is sufficient for such needs. Why run to the world for answers when we serve the Prince of Peace? There is so much in God's Word that confirms Ganz's position about Biblical counseling. I feel that his position on this subject is timely as many Christians have compromised with the world in this area. It is time for us to believe what God says in His Word. "Do not be anxious for anything..." (Phil. 4:6-7)

Not "typical"!

"A reader from Ohio" calls PSYCHOBABBLE "Typical work from those who view psychology as the tool of Satan." That is simply a mischaracterization of the book, for it misses the important point that Ganz comes at his topic not as an outsider, but as a former psychologist himself who became disillusioned and found that the gospel of Jesus Christ creates real transformation in people.

No more psychology for me!!!

Great book! After reading Competent to Counsel by Jay Adams followed by this book, I finally made the leap of faith to abandon psychology forever. I thank God for people like Ganz who are willing to speak out the unpopular truth-- my life has been set straight, and I believe I was spared several more years of anguish that would have occurred had I continued to try to deal with my problems through the counsel of the world rather than the counsel of God. All of you who have been horribly disappointed with secular counseling, or psychology dressed as Christian counseling, you need to get this book! It will help you understand why you've been so let down, and where the real answers lie
