Harry has been running Inpatient Drug and Alcohol Treatment programs for over thirty years. It is from this professional mindset that he shares his insights from the Bible. First he walks the reader through the scriptures on how we are made in the image of God but are fallen. Then he integrates our design and sin nature with Jesus’ teaching in the Parable of the Sower, where Jesus identifies four different spiritual conditions. Lastly, he takes the reader through a clinical observation of reviewing Jesus’ work with each of the four types of spiritual conditions. This book is not about drugs. It is about how we are all damaged and in need of a recovery program. He shows how Jesus as the “Wonderful Counselor” models the delivery of this recovery program.
