This is a story of a man who sought the meaning of his life in the culture in which he was reared, a variety of vocations, alcoholism and eventually a faith in God. His encounter with God liberated him from alcoholism, made him open to God's call and to preparation for his life's work. He attended a theological school and discovered that he did not wish to be a preaching minister but a pastoral counselor.
This decision led him into hospital chaplaincy, psychoanalyst, Erickson Ian Hypnosis, Nero Linguistic Programming plus a dozen other streams of influence that liberated his own life and provided a foundation for his life long work as a pastoral counselor.
His family has been one of his major teachers. His wife stood with him through his days of alcoholism and has been for him a constant source of inspiration and hope.
This book sets forth the numerous influences, which have flowed into this man's life and have given birth to a kind of therapy that is effective down to earth and healing. His work is characterized by an emphasis on inner personal communication, attentive listening, speaking the truth in love. More than any other comment, people say this man models what he teaches.
