Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“It is well written: clearly, humorously, honestly, and empathically. We owe Thorne an enormous debt for courageously opening his heart, mind, and soul to share the truth about a loving God walking with his people. It has been a privilege to review a book that amounts to his magnum opus, and I hope I have done it justice.” (Church Times, 18 October 2013)

“This is a ‘Brian Thorne reader’, and is to be commended to all therapists of all theoretical orientations.” (Therapy Today, September 2013)
