EDWARD T WELCH

Depression. Attention deficit disorder. Alcoholism. Homosexuality.

Research suggests that more and more behaviours are caused by brain function or dysfunction. But is it ever legitimate to blame misbehaviour on the brain? How can I know whether “My brain made me do it”?

Viewing brain problems through the lens of Scripture, Edward T. Welch distinguishes genuine brain disorders from problems rooted in the heart. Understanding that distinction will enable pastors, counsellors, families, and friends to help others—or themselves—deal with personal struggles and responsibilities. While focusing on a few common disorders, Dr. Welch lays out a series of practical steps adaptable to a wide range of conditions, habits, or addictions.

Endorsements

“Ed Welch’s careful biblical and scientific scholarship is a model to be emulated, especially in his chapters on homosexuality and alcoholism. While he has not written the final word on the interaction between the brain and the soul, he has forged a work that has a strong theoretical base and eminently practical application. Christians who personally or professionally face or discuss these problems in themselves or others must study and contend with this book.”

—Franklin E. Payne Jr., M.D.
