Research suggests that more and more behaviors are caused by brain function or dysfunction. But is it ever legitimate to blame misbehavior on the brain? How can I ever know whether "My brain made me do it"?

Viewing brain problems through the lens of Scripture, the author distinguishes genuine brain disorders from problems rooted in the heart. Understanding that distinction will enable pastors, counselors, families and friends to help others—or themselves—deal with personal struggles and responsibilities. While focusing on a few common disorders, Dr. Welch lays out a series of practical steps adaptable to a wide range of conditions, habits or addictions.
