"This extremely lucid and well-written book provides clear and profoundly useful evidence for the role of faith, hope, and love in the effective treatment of a major neuropsychiatric affliction, obsessive-compulsive disorder. With extraordinary skill, Ian Osborn teaches us how God's grace, Christ's sacrifice, and the work of Holy Spirit hold the key to overcoming this serious but potentially uplifting medical condition."--Jeffrey M. Schwartz, MD, research psychiatrist, UCLA, and author of "Brain Lock: Free Yourself from Obsessive-Compulsive Behavior"
"This important new book by OCD expert Dr. Ian Osborn provides much-needed information, historical perspective, and hope for Christians suffering the terrible burden of blasphemous obsessions or religious scrupulosity, as well as for the mental health professionals who treat them."--Lee Baer, PhD, clinical professor of psychology, Harvard Medical School
"Cognitive-behavioral therapy and medication helped in my struggle against OCD, but as I look back I can see that releasing the OCD part of my life to God is what has given me the most relief. Luther, Bunyan, and Therese discovered this centuries ago and Dr. Osborn has very clearly put into words their spiritual solutions. When I'm tempted to wrest control of OCD away from God, I will turn again and again to Dr. Osborn's book and the examples of these Christian heroes."--Cherry Pedrick, RN, coauthor of "The OCD Workbook" and "Loving Someone with OCD"
"It is a rare pleasure to read a book by a Christian psychiatrist that not only reveals an in-depth understanding of both the pharmacology and psychology of a mental disorder, but also describes how a sufferer's Christian faith may be enlisted as an ally in the course of treatment. Dr. Osborn's book does all that--and more. If you're like me, reading these stories, and the stories of Dr. Osborn and his patients, will stimulate not only new ideas about treating OCD, but a search for a simpler, deeper faith."--Michael R. Lowry, MD, clinical associate professor and associate chair, department of psychiatry medical director, University Neuropsychiatric Institute
