STILL WATERS REVIVAL BOOKS Free and Discount Puritan and Reformed Christian book distributors serving Christians worldwide (in over 100 countries) for 27+ years.
SWRB does not endorse everything believed by the authors or ministers in the free resources below, but maintains that there is much of value in the articles and MP3s listed in regard to both secular and so-called "Christian" psychology and the detrimental effects they have on individual Christians and the church.
"My goal in this book is to help readers understand that the counseling concepts woven into psychoanalysis (and its secular psychotherapeutic offshoots) are inherently opposed to the Word of God. My approach will be to reveal the direct conflict between secular philosophies and Biblical principles and to strip back to its ugly roots the psychotherapy that the church has baptized and embraced. My hope is that the church will stop shuffling her hurting and broken members to the 'experts' who lack the power and perspective of the Word of God, that pastors will instead seize the opportunities to teach, rebuke, correct, and train in righteousness a people fit for service to King Jesus."
The Psychological Way Versus the Way: A Theological Response to Bob & Gretchen Passantino's series of articles in the Christian Research Journal under the title: "Psychology and the Church" http://www.john14-6.org/Passantino.htm
Over 950 (8.5 inch by 11 inch) pages long, Dr. Timothy Keller calls this "the greatest manual on Biblical counseling ever produced." John MacAurthur writes, "We have long waited for a purely Biblical treatment of the spiritual ills and cures of men which is untainted by the views of psychology. Since Baxter lived about 200 years before psychology arrived, his deep work is completely void of its encroachment -- thankfully!"
"In the history of the church’s sanctification I don’t believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive... It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned." - Dr. Matthew McMahon, A Puritan's Mind.
