    Doubting Disease: Help for Scrupulosity and Religious Compulsions

    Joe Ciarrocchi has written one of the classic works in the field of OCD. As a pastoral educator this is one of the books that every pastor should have on a shelf in the study. OCD has more aspects related to religion than any other mental health issue. This book is a great place to start in studying that issue.
