Like the world in which we live, human beings are broken. This brokenness leads to damaged relationships, sinful behaviour and even physical and mental illness. With a pastoral heart shaped by years of ministry to hurting people, and with careful attention to the truth of Scripture, Adrian De Visser uncovers how the emotional wounds of childhood, physical and sexual abuse and legalistic church environments provide opportunities for the Enemy to build strongholds in our lives. These strongholds are grounded on lies that influence our thinking at the deepest level and create destructive patterns that rob us of joy, limit our fruitfulness in the Kingdom and derail our relationships with God and those we love. With transparency and grace, Rev. De Visser reveals his own struggle to understand and accept the love of God and combines biblical truth, psychological research and poignant examples from the lives of those he has helped in his ministry. Each chapter is accompanied by study questions and activities that encourage readers to apply the truths they have learned as they embark on the journey to emotional healing. Rev. Adrian De Visser is the Founder and Senior Pastor of Kithu Sevana Ministries, a missions-oriented church-planting organization, based in Sri Lanka. As a widely respected preacher, speaker and author, Adrian continues to impact people with his message of incarnational evangelism and through his teachings on inner healing. He has authored several books in English and Sinhala, including Ministry in the Balance. Adrian holds an MA in Missions from Columbia International University, and was awarded an honorary doctorate by the Government of Sri Lanka in 2007 for his social development and community-oriented work of over two decades. In the same year, he was also awarded the title of Deshabandu by the Government of Sri Lanka. Adrian serves as the Vice President for Partnership Development for Asian Access and is the former International Deputy Director for South Asia for the Lausanne Movement.
