A critical review of Stuart Scott and Heath Lambert's book, Counseling the Hard Cases.
The book "Counseling the Hard Cases" was co-edited by Stuart Scott and Heath Lambert, seminary professors in biblical counseling. This Critical Review reveals that the lynchpin for Scott and Lambert’s house of cards is their view of mental illness. Their fallacious view is a disaster in the making and a danger to those who counsel and their counselees. Believing, teaching, and promoting such a view of mental illness will lead to calamities as it places in litigious danger those who will foolishly follow and copy-cat counsel with confidence accordingly. This can easily be a great detriment and disaster to those who receive such counseling. This Critical Review issues the following warning: Do not blithely, blindly, and blatantly play follow-the leader with the ten case studies showcased in "Counseling the Hard Cases." Do not take literally these ten cases and the inferred claim that you, too, can cure through biblical counseling the hard cases listed in "Counseling the Hard Cases."
