Editorial Reviews

FRANKLIN E. PAYNE JR.
Ed Welch’s careful biblical and scientific scholarship is a model to be emulated, especially in his chapters on homosexuality and alcoholism. While he has not written the final word on the interaction between the brain and the soul, he has forged a work that has a strong theoretical base and eminently practical application. Christians who personally of professionally face or discuss these problems in themselves or others must study and contend with this book.
