“This book fills a unique niche in the emerging field of Christian discipleship counseling. Woodward takes on a challenging theological debate concerning the makeup of human beings and, in the process, builds a persuasive argument for the significant implications of a trichotomous view of human beings for the enterprise of Christian counseling. His fresh light on the subject is a thoughtful and invigorating invitation to pastors and professional and lay counselors alike, to rethink their assumptions about how we’re made and how hurting people can be helped.” – Cary Lantz, Ph. D.
