Handbook to Happiness
(Tyndale) by Charles R. Solomon

The first edition of this widely-read handbook has guided thousands of believers into victorious living in Christ and into becoming more effective, Christ-centered counselors. Now, drawing on more than 30 years of counseling experience, Dr. Charles Solomon has produced this extensively revised and expanded version. This is not just another “Christian psychology” book. The author, in departing from traditional psychological approaches, leads distressed people directly to the Cross of Christ , not just for the eternal life Jesus promised, but for the abundant life, here and now. Dr. Solomon calls his approach “Spirituotherapy,” a biblically based program that draws on the Holy Spirit’s work of regeneration and the appropriation of the new life in Christ available to us.

The Ins and Out of Rejection
(Solomon Publications) by Charles R. Solomon

This book is addressed to those who are hurting & includes Dr. Solomon’s personal testimony. It clearly shows the role that rejection plays in the development of mental & emotional symptoms, of which depression is perhaps the most common. The book can also be used by those who help others in a lay or professional capacity. Those who have appropriated Christ as Life will find it most helpful in understanding the role of the will in maintaining victory. The simplicity of the presentation of rejection makes it possible to understand the breakdown of relationships, as well as the neurotic symptoms suffered by the individual.

Classic Christianity
(Harvest House) by Bob George

For every vibrant, fulfilled Christian, there seem to be nine who are “doing all the right things” but still feel bogged down, tied up, or burned out. What is missing? Like so many Christians, Bob George started his Christian life in love with the Savior only to end up years later disappointed and unfulfilled in his Christian walk. Drawing on his own struggles and years of teaching and counseling experience, Bob cuts right to the heart of the matter to confront the question of why so many Christians start out as enthusiastic believers and end up merely “going through the motions” of the Christian life. In his down-to-earth style, Bob George shows us the way back to authentic Christianity; the kind that Christ had in mind when He set us free.

Lifetime Guarantee
(Harvest House) by Bill Gillham

It’s not your problems that need to be fixed , it’s your life! The good news is that God doesn’t ask you to live your life for Christ, but to let Him live His life through you. With humor, candor, and “plain vanilla talk,” author Bill Gillham takes a new and enlightening look at the concept of your identity in Christ. A Christian who walks in this manner is backed by God’s lifetime guarantee.

The Rest of the Gospel
“when the partial Gospel has worn you out”
(One Press) by Dan Stone & Greg Smith

Having God’s forgiveness is wonderful. Spending eternity with God is great. But for now, where is the abundant life Jesus promised? Why is the Christian life such a struggle? Because getting forgiven is only half of the gospel! “The Rest of the Gospel is not us striving on our own to be ‘good’ Christians, but Christ in us, living His life through us as we rest in Him. An exquisite gift to the Body of Christ.” Jan Mugele, former missionary, Wycliffe Bible Translators “A masterful job of explaining the only path to sanctification, trusting in our union with the complete work of Christ on the cross. The Rest of the Gospel makes the way of the cross as clear and appealing as it truly is.” –Dr. John Best, President, Exchanged Life Ministries, Texas.

Don’t Waste Your Sorrows
(Bethany House) by Paul E. Billheimer

This book offers new insight into God’s eternal purpose for each Christian in the midst of life’s greatest adversities. The question, “Why, God?” has been asked by Christians from all levels of spiritual maturity throughout history. Perhaps nothing is as perplexing to Christians as the enigma of pain and suffering. This well-loved writer and pastor, ministering for over 60 years, continues the theme originally presented in his bestselling Destined for the Throne: Christians are in training for eternal rulership with Christ. The character needed to fulfill both present and future responsibilities can, at times, be developed only in the school of suffering. He points out that it is not the mere presence of suffering but how a Christian reacts to it which determines one’s spiritual growth through sorrow and pain.

Destined For The Throne
by Paul E. Billheimer

Learn how spiritual warfare prepares the Bride of Christ for her eternal destiny. With it’s message of God’s love for His Bride and Believers’ triumph in Christ, Destined for the Throne has been a rousing call to prayer for thousands. God’s eternal purpose, writes Paul Billheimer, has been the preparation and training of an eternal companion for His Son; the Bride of Christ. This preparation takes place as Believers engage in spiritual warfare, as they exercise believing prayer. God has chosen to work in the world through His children’s prayers; Christians need prayer in order to practice for their heavenly destiny.
