Here is the link to the Neil T. Anderson collection https://www.logos.com/product/31771/neil-t-anderson-collection.  I am curious what your thoughts about him are?  On the internet there are mixed views, I guess that is probably true of about most Christian leaders and authors.  What are his views in regards to popular psychology?  I am reading Counsel One Another: A Theology of Personal Discipleship by Paul Tautges and he quotes him and this has piqued my interest.  I actually have 3 of his books in my print library which I have never read.  I agree very much with Paul Tautges in that the Bible needs to be the foundation of our lives.  I am not real big of "psychology" except where it reinforces Biblical values.  Please let me know what your views are on the writings of Neil T. Anderson.  Also please recommend counseling resources the are faithful to the Word of God.

Michael.

Had missed that pre-pub, but thanks to your post have not put in my order.

Michael Kinch:

Several years ago I was subscribed to an email devotional resource by him. He deals mostly with Satanic/demonic/spiritual oppression with an emphasis on our freedom in Christ. Although I do not agree with everything he wrote, I do find him to be insightful and very Biblically based.

Sorry that I cannot speak to this aspect of his work except to repeat that his work is Bible-based.

Timothy Brown:

Re: Neil Anderson, Elliot Miller and Bob and Gretchen Passantino have written articles critical of his ministry for the Christian Research Institute (links below). I tend to agree with the critiques. Others, I'm sure, will not.

I read the first one, and am one who does not agree. [I deleted the reasons for my disagreement, deciding they would simply feed an unwelcome theological debate.]

To answer the question about how we feel about him, let me make this intentionally limited statement: I have found Anderson helpful, though incomplete (I'd say more, but don't want to debate/discuss those issues in this forum).

For anyone who wants a perspective on dealing with the area of spiritual warfare, Anderson is thoughtful, articulate and most often helpful. Even in places I disagree with him, he identifies the issues we need to deal with. For those who want to include in their libraries a major, contemporary contributor in this area of discussion, one whom people are talking about, Anderson is a must.

I also read that first article, and I am not sure the author of it really understands Anderson.

Thanks everyone for your comments.  I try to read from authors who I think I will agree with as well as from authors who will challenge my thinking and theology.  The negative comments from CRI have encouraged me to check him out.  I am not a big fan of CRI.  I have been reading The Bondage Breaker today.  I have finished the first 5 chapters and so far I have been encouraged in what I have read.  I have pre-ordered the Logos bundle and am excited about reading more.

Thanks for the references, Robert. The Bibliotheca Sacra article, "Neil Anderson's Approach to the Spiritual Life," by David G. Moore and Robert A. Pyne, is also available as a pdf on the web.

Does THIS work?

EDIT: I took one of your links and created a hyperlink using the "chain link" icon in the formatting pallet (after first selecting the word "THIS").

Robert, go to the logos website.  Enter you search criteria and press enter.  A page will come up listing various resources.  The title will be in dark blue and the author in light grey.  Copy the title and anything else that you want and paste it into your forum post.  Go ahead and try it here.

Robert's links attempt to open the resource in Logos itself. Alabama tried to fix the issue by creating it as a hyperlink. Since I don't have the resource I can't tell if it opened the resource to the right place, but it opened something I don't have a license to.

Yes. It opened the resource at the proper article.

I might add, this is a fair and well reasoned article. This is another example of why journals are so invaluable to the LOGOS user - excellent responses to current issues. But I won't pursue this rabbit here. :)

Thank you for that reference. Very interesting article. Like anyone else, Anserson should be carefully read along with contrary viewpoints, and especially with constant reference to appropriate Scripture passages.

Much easier than the way I was trying - thanks much Alabama!

I tend to read 1-star reviews on Amazon first. At times I can learn more, good and bad, about the book with them than most of the 5-star reviews.

On the other hand as I get older and more decrepit and my expiration date gets closer and closer I would rather focus on what is true.
