In Curing the Heart, Drs. Eyrich and Hines present a truly biblical model of counseling, and do so in a comprehensive, comprehendible manner. In the heritage of the great Puritan pastors, the authors equip readers to become skillful soul physicians who reconcile and guide believers toward growth in Christ. Focusing on the sufficiency and relevancy of God's Word, Curing the Heart presents the Bible's message about humanity in a living and dynamic way, and shows how to use the Bible to change hearts with God's changeless truth.

"Dr. Howard Eyrich serves on the Pastoral Staff at Briarwood Presbyterian Church. He has not only developed, but put into practice, the model of Biblical Counseling which is developed for you in this book. Our Lord has used him successively to minister to many people in our congregation and community, to train others and to multiply biblical counseling through the transferable model that you will find on the following pages.
