Puritan writers-theologians were masters at understanding the nature of human beings and applying Scripture in practical ways to help people. Looking to Scripture as the final authority, the Puritans grounded their own counselling practices in a proper view of the sovereignty of God and the underlying heart issues of people. By understanding why people struggle and the provision God makes for our struggles, counsellors today will be better equipped to guide those they counsel toward God-appointed solutions.

""Much is to be learned from them and Mark Deckard guides us in a most helpful fashion by drawing on seven of these 'physicians of the soul'. He directs us to the relevance of the subject by choosing chapter titles that remind us how up-to-date these pastoral concerns are...It should certainly encourage us to read the Puritans more extensively in these practical areas of Christian living."

Evangelical Times

Our arrogance leads us to believe that the past has nothing to offer by way of insight and comfort for our present struggles. Mark Deckard guides us through the rich pastoral theology of Puritan preacher/theologians such as Burroughs, Edwards, Brooks, Owen, Bridges, and others on emotions, contentment, sin, depression, and more. I enthusiastically recommend this book to seminarians, counselors, theologians, and interested laypeople.
