Overview

Most academic and therapeutic programs do not include spirituality and God as essential components of health and treatment. Dr. William Kraft gives God a principal place in the house of psychology. He shows how and why God experiences are paramount in helping us live a healthy and happy life. He describes and analyzes what are healthy and unhealthy experiences of God and how activities, including religion, can help and hinder our coming to God. In short, this book is about how and why we come or do not come to God, and what difference it makes.

""In his new work, Coming to God, William Kraft outlines the positive impact that spirituality can have on therapy. Every day, I thank God for his tender mercies. I count meeting Bill Kraft and my experiences with him as one of those mercies.""
--Chris Allison, author of You'll Manage: Lessons Learned from a Former CEO

""In his latest work, William Kraft, a wise sage, trusted therapist, and Christian counselor, engages, engenders, and encourages the reader to realize that a spiritual connection is essential to medical/physical, psychological/social, spiritual/God aspects of the human journey. . . . As a master of AA spirituality, he maintains that God must be part of any treatment plan and that holiness is within every person's reach. . . . Kraft's spiritual perspective brings hope, healing, and health to a wide audience of seekers.""
--Richard S. Jones, author of The Path I Walk
