Overview

Finding the Root of the Problem

• I'm tired of always comparing myself to others.
• My husband and I can't stop fighting.
• A friend of mine drinks too much.
• Some people make me feel so mad.
• My wife is constantly depressed.

All of us have struggles in life. We try to change our ways or thought patterns. We try to understand why life isn't going the way it should.

Perhaps you, your spouse, another family member, or a friend has needed some help. Visiting a counselor seemed to make no difference. No improvement. No breakthrough.

When healing doesn't occur or last, it may be because the root of the problem hasn't been exposed.

In What Your Counselor Never Told You, Dr. William Backus reveals the much ignored and denied basis for common emotional and psychological problems. Drawing from decades of research back to one of seven traits or characteristics, most commonly known as the Seven Deadly Sins. The key is understanding which of these traits are more dominant in your life, and therefore troublesome, and then learning how to embrace God's remedy.

Includes self-assessment questions for individual and group use.

    Brace yourself -- this book is designed to build self-esteem

    Talk about eye-openers! Dr. Backus claims that most of our problems are the result of (brace yourself, I¿m going to use that ghastly word) sin ¿ pride, envy, anger, greed, sloth, lust, gluttony, and all the rest. Believe it or not, he¿s right. He even includes a ¿sin test,¿ which I took upon first reading the book in 2001 and again not long ago it was humbling to be reminded that I still have miles and miles to go.

    Provocative

    Backus has one of the most thoughtful and provocative books that I've read in a while. No self help garbage here. Get's to the root of issues.
