Overview

Healing for the City is a counseling manual designed for urban residents, both Christian and non-Christian. It focuses on the brokenness and problems of city life without assuming that all who live in the city suffer from serious dysfunctions. Craig Ellison and Ed Mynard offer practical guidance for those who have become victims of the emotional, relational, and spiritual distress often found in the city.

In the Logos edition, this volume is enhanced by amazing functionality. Important terms link to dictionaries, encyclopedias, and a wealth of other resources in your digital library. Perform powerful searches to find exactly what you’re looking for. Take the discussion with you using tablet and mobile apps. With Logos Bible Software, the most efficient and comprehensive research tools are in one place, so you get the most out of your study.
