As a former officer of Marines, a Navy chaplain to Marines, and later a VA chaplain to Veterans, Dr. Scott Jimenez has spent many years working with countless combat Veterans struggling with PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder). PTSD is also often masked by substance abuse. The media treats them as outcasts, though there are treatment options available. However, they offer an incomplete recovery, not fully addressing important areas such as guilt, shame, forgiveness, and identity, which are theological in nature, and need a theological approach. Providing exhaustive research into this pressing discovery, Dr. Jimenez's PTSD: A THEOLOGICAL APPROACH provides an effective treatment, in an easy-to-read and simple format. This book is designed for readers who know someone suffering from PTSD, are curious about it, or just want to help. The author has performed extensive research, interviewing combat veterans, as well as secondary research consisting of endless hours of study, sifting, and recombining data found. Since there are neither books nor research focusing on a theological approach to PTSD, this book is a crucial and revolutionary aid to all who suffer from it, whether combat veteran or those who have experienced other forms of life trauma. Emphasizing usage of faith-based recovery and spiritual programs such as Alcoholics Anonymous (AA) and Narcotics Anonymous (NA) for support, the author highlights strong research in these pages, and a conviction that true, long-term recovery from this condition cannot last without attention and aid given to the all-important "soul injury" aspect of PTSD.
