    A Health Model for Relating to Self, God, and Others

    The Montgomery Self Compass is both sophisticated and incredibly easy to understand and apply. The book approaches personality in user-friendly terms known as the LAWS of personality¿Love and Assertion, Weakness and Strength. These LAWS empower self-help, while offering a growth tool that therapists or pastoral counselors can readily employ. Written in a lively style that keeps you turning pages, the book shows how much your personality matters to God and delivers specific ways to outgrow limitations. THE SELF COMPASS is a must read for anyone seeking a health model for transforming their personality and relationships. Raymond D. Anderson, Ph.D., M.Th., LPCC
