As his testimony unfolds he tells how he then found Christ as savior only a few short hours before committing himself to a psychiatric hospital, which was followed by full deliverence from mental illness. He goes on to share how others in his family who rejected Christ suffered for years with severe psychotic episodes.Loony Bin Blues then presents an engaging, thought provoking and thoroughly fascinating story of God leading the author into an unexpected twenty year foray through several insane asylums...
not as a patient, but as a professional psychiatric services counselor, therapist, and case manager. The many stories he shares about his work with the mentally ill as well as cutting edge street ministries brings a clear message that Jesus Christ, not psychiatry, is the true savior and healer of the human soul.Akin to stories such as This Present Darkness and those of world evangelists who time and again see Gods miracles, Loony Bin Blues moves in and out of earthly, heavenly and hellish realms revealing that each and every person is of intense interest to both God and Satan.
It is an incredible adventure which encounters the powers behind both the natural and the supernatural worlds that will leave readers needing to remind themselves that this isnt fiction, but a story that is entirely true.In addition to the story itself, Loony Bin Blues unmasks the mysterious psychiatric world, showing it to be a multi-million dollar industry more concerned with financial profit than with finding the real answer to mental illness. Psychiatrys spurious history, philosophies and ideologies are all brought to light exposing it as not only a misleading pseudo-science, but an illegitimate challenger to the scriptures and the church in matters pertaining to the redemption of mankind.As a Christian testimony of both good and evil events witnessed in the natural and spiritual worlds as well as in psychiatric wards, Loony Bin Blues offers an insightful firsthand account rather than mere heresay and conjecture.
So, if you believe that insanity is simply the result of brain malfunctions and chemical imbalances remedied by natural means, and if you dont believe in God, angels, demons and Satan, then you are in for a real surprise. Loony Bin Blues pulls back the curtain to unveil a science falsely so called and the very real battle between the emissaries of light and darkness for each and every eternal human soul.
