About-

Hypnosis is a controversial practice with many myths about its power and dangers. 'Hypnosis, Healing and the Christian' cuts through the confusion to present a balanced defense of the use of hypnosis by Christians, arguing that it is a powerful tool in bringing about psychological change.

John Court avoids minimizing the dangers of this powerful phenomenon, as he discusses examples of clinical hypnosis by Christians who have found emotional and spiritual benefits from its use. Setting ethical concerns about the use of hypnosis firmly within a framework of the biblical material, he argues that hypnosis is a morally neutral technique which may be used for good or ill. Its use by pagan and other religions should not prevent its constructive and godly use by Christians.

This stimulating book will be of interest not only to those involved in counseling and healing ministries but also to Christians interested in broader understanding of how our human minds work.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"John Court has done it again. He has taken a problematic treatment and made it palatable for the Christian . . . He does not see hypnosis as always helpful but he does present this powerful tool as helping Christians live up to their intentions. I recommend it to all - clients and counselors alike!"
H. Newton Malony
Senior Professor of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary

"Both practical, clinical acuityand Christian wisdom shine through this book, making it invaluable to ministers, Christian counsellors and therapists. This thoughtful and thorough book will also be helpful to Christians who may themselves wonder whether hypnosis - practised through proper hands - may be helpful to them."
Dr. John Hall
Consultant Clinical Psychologist at the Warneford Hospital and Part-time lectuer in Pastoral Psychology at Wycliffe Hall and Regents Park College
