In For As I Think in My Heart—So I Am: Combining Biblical Counseling with Cognitive Behavioral Therapy, Edward D. Andrews offers practical and biblical insights on a host of issues, from the challenge of forgiveness to eating disorders, anger, alcoholism, depression, anxiety, and many others. Based on Proverbs 23:7 (NKJV): “For as he thinks in his heart, so is he,” Andrews’ text works from the position that if we can change the way that we think, we can change the way that we behave. Throughout For As I Think in My Heart he helps readers examine the lies and half-truths they tell themselves repeatedly; lies, which as he argues, contribute to mental distress and a wide range of issues in their lives. In this text, he seeks to wash those lies with biblical truth by combining biblical counseling with cognitive behavioral therapy “in an effort to better understand our human condition” and give readers tools to face these challenges.
