1 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Thomas G. O'brien on 19 Dec. 2008
Format: Hardcover
This book I believe holds many keys to unlocking the doors to emotional wholeness and freedom for many. A bit like the discovery of e equals mc squared, the equation looks very simple, but it took some genius to put it all together. Smith doesn't claim genius, just a total disillusionment with the failing CBT-based approaches he had been using before God showed him the principles of TPM. You can use this book as a self-help healing resource, or learn how to start ministering healing to others.

Christian Counselor reccomends this book 10 Oct. 2005
By W. S. Lownsdale - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
As a licensed clinical counselor in private practice in Rockford, Illinois specializing in Christian Counseling, I have been applying Theophostic Ministry principles in my practice after receiving training from Dr. Smith. In most cases, I have seen amazing (I don't use that word very often), yes, amazing results in very brief periods of time. Theophostic is highly consistent with my counseling approach based on an integration of the sound scientific principles of cognitive-behavioral therapy with the principles of heart-healing described in the Bible, especially the Davidic psalms (see scottlownsdale.com for description). In this book, Dr. Ed Smith does an outstanding job in making Theophostic Ministry clear and theologically sound. I highly recommend it to my patients, colleagues, and also to pastors who have questions on Theophostic Ministry. Remember, however, that this book is no substitute for receiving Theophostic ministry, or for getting the necessary training.

Life-Changing Resource! 3 Oct. 2007
By Rebecca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
God used this book to change my life! I didn't want to read any more books dealing with emotional pain because none of the materials I had read had really helped me, but this book did! I read the original Healing Life's Deepest Hurts title, and I would recommend this book or the original title second to the Bible! My husband gave me a copy when we were dating, and in the past 3 1/2 years, I have received so much healing from God emotionally! I never understood why I overreacted emotionally in various situations until I read this book. I would recommend it to anyone with "impossible" problems. God can heal you, and this book explains how to receive His healing touch!

Highly Recomended 15 Sept. 2007
By Grace Gloria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
If you have tried to live a good Christian life yet have been to or have seriously thought of going to counseling--but nothing seems to "stick", this book is for you! When I read it I felt a new excitement that through Christ there is truly hope. I was shown a direction in which to go to receive that experience with Jesus I had hoped for. Dr Ed Smith has written a book and also has the resources available that will help anyone who is ready and willing to be honest with God and themselves to receive complete healing from our "Great Physician" and only true Counselor.

Excellent Help for Recovery from Childhood Pain 27 May 2006
By Nancy M Carter - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
In 2005, I published a book named Fortresses to Build and To Destroy: How I Overcame Fatness and Rebuilt My Life, by Alexis Morgan. I am a licensed clinical social worker in private practice, and I wrote the book about my own recovery, with the intention of using it with support groups for people who have experienced a lifetime of obesity. The book was written in a style that other people could use to discover their own experiences with childhood pain underpinning their continued use of fatness for protection against further humiliation and abuse. A friend sent me this book, and I was happy to see that Mr. Smith very accurately explained the process by which children succumb to "lie-based pain," a process which assures an adult life filled with continuous failure and disappointment. His prescriptions for healing are excellent, and completely consistent with my own understanding of the process by which adults heal from childhood trauma. The book helped me personally, and I will be recommending it to any person who reads my book, as it provides such excellent clarification of the process of healing, including the necessity of relying on the power of faith in Jesus Christ to facilitate recovery. There is enormous hope to be found from reading this book!

Excellent Introduction to Theophostic Prayer 30 Sept. 2005
By RWayne - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This book was originally copublished under the title "Healing Life's Deepest Hurts" by Servant Publications & New Creation Publishing. See that title for many reviews.

I am very grateful to Dr. Smith for delineating many thoughts about root problems & their solutions, grace vs. works-based sanctification, letting Jesus be the healer of broken-hearted, logical truth vs. experiential truth, etc.

A more detailed & in-depth explanation of the process is found in Dr. Smith's Basic Seminar package (manual included), available at the Theophostic Ministry website. I highly recommend it to those who desire freedom & joy unspeakable.
