Overview

In a society where masking your emotions is the norm, it’s difficult to come to grips with the reality that there is deep spiritual suffering in and amongst ourselves. Dealing with emotions, apart from Christ, is hopeless. In the Dan B. Allender Counseling Collection (3 vols.), author and psychologist Dan B. Allender gives his unique perspective on emotions, love, and childhood sexual abuse. He presents biblical ways to deal with the dark issues surrounding these topics.

This collection looks at how emotions are dealt with in both society and your spiritual walk with Christ. Whether you’re struggling to understand the real meaning of love, are frustrated with your ability to control negative emotions, or are burdened with a past that included sexual abuse, you will find that there is healing that can be done. Dr. Allender focuses on the hope that is found when you feel there is nothing that can heal your broken soul: Jesus Christ. Understanding that Christ wants to release you from your chain of burdens is key in healing your soul.

Filled with practical helps and biblical encouragement, the Dan B. Allender Counseling Collection (3 vols.) will equip those who have suffered with negative emotions and those who counsel them, to grasp the hope and freedom found in Christ and live our lives in spiritual victory.

With Logos, countless Scripture passages are only a click away. Whether you are a counselor or are being counseled, the Logos edition of the Dan B. Allender Counseling Collection (3 vols.) brings the words of Scripture closer than ever to life’s greatest challenges.

Bold Love

  • Authors: Dan B. Allender and Tremper Longman III
  • Publisher: NavPress
  • Publication Date: 1992
  • Pages: 320

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6

We've come to view love as being nice. Forgiving and forgetting. Yielding to the desires of others. Yet the kind of love modeled by Jesus Christ has nothing to do with manners or unconditional acceptance. Rather, it is disruptive, courageous, and socially unacceptable.

In Bold Love, Dr. Dan Allender and Dr. Tremper Longman III draw out the aggressive, unrelenting, passionate power of genuine love. Far from helping you “get along” with others, Bold Love introduces the outlandish possibility of making a significant, life-changing impact on family, friends, coworkers—even your enemies.

"Bold love is anything but passive," writes Dr. Allender. "It is unpredictable, cunning, and creative. It is a violation of the natural order of things. In many cases it will unnerve, offend, disturb, or even hurt those who are being loved. But in the end it will also compel them to deal with the internal disease that is robbing them (and others) of true beauty."

So if it feels like you've turned the other cheek so many times your head is spinning, it's probably time to take a second look at your practice of love. Because there's nothing redemptive about a love that just accepts people for who they are.

The Cry of the Soul: How Our Emotions Reveal Our Deepest Questions About God

  • Author: Dan B. Allender and Tremper Longman III
  • Publisher: NavPress
  • Publication Date: 1999
  • Pages: 272

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

So often we find ourselves caught between extremes. Either we feel too much or not at all. We tend to ignore our feelings or fight them off as if they were an enemy. But all emotion—whether positive or negative—can give us a glimpse of the true nature of God. We want to control our negative emotions and dark desires. God wants us to recognize them as the cry of our soul to be made right with Him.

Beginning with the Psalms, Dr. Dan Allender and Dr. Tremper Longman III explore what Scripture says about our darker emotions. In this ground-breaking work they reveal that often our attempts to control our emotions—far from an attempt to be Christlike—are really a form of rebellion against God or an attempt to flee from Him.

This book shows that emotions are neither an embarrassment nor an impediment to spirituality, but the very stuff God uses as He shapes His salvation in us.

—Eugene H. Peterson, author of The Message

If we are to be rescued from the incessant tendency to psychologize the gospel, this book will be a good start. Dan and Tremper give us not more psychological information, but biblical encouragement to be faithful.

The Wounded Heart: Hope for Adult Victims of Childhood Sexual Abuse

  • Author: Dan B. Allender
  • Publisher: NavPress
  • Publication Date: 2008
  • Pages: 272

Sample Pages: 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7

You may think you don't know anyone who has been sexually abused, but the statistics indicate otherwise. The Wounded Heart is an intensely personal and specific look at this most "soul deadening" form of abuse. Personal because it may be affecting you, your spouse, a close friend or neighbor, or someone you know well at church; and specific because it goes well beyond the general issues and solutions discussed in other books.

Dr. Allender's book reaches deep into the wounded heart of someone you know, exploring the secret lament of the soul damaged by sexual abuse and laying hold of the hope buried there by the One whose unstained image we all bear. Includes information about false memory issues.

These powerful pages bring the realities of damaging human experience into the perspective of a loving God. With professional skill and spiritual insight from the crucible of experience, Dr. Allender blends a keen understanding of the dynamics of sexual abuse with the practical application of Christian truth. An excellent and timely book!

—John Powell, Professor, Counseling Center, Michigan State University

Dr. Allender acts as a true surgeon of the soul in making a diagnosis which, while compassionate, is never sentimental. He brings the wounded survivor of abuse to the Great Physician for healing. I welcome this book: a next step for those who have begun the healing process, and a place to start for others.

—Maxine Hancock, author of Child Sexual Abuse
