Pills for the Soul?

How Medication Falls Short of Christ’s Healing of the Emotions

PH.D. Dieter K. Mulitze

ISBN: 9781852404871 [320 pages]

Are pills and medication really God’s best for dealing with our emotional state? Should we simply accept the world’s wisdom that our emotions are controlled by chemicals in our brain and body – that pills are the best way for treatment? Do anti-depressants reach the root of emotional crisis?


This well balanced book intelligently tackles these complex questions. It challenges the widely accepted practices of modern psychiatry in dealing with issues such as depression, mood swings and bi-polar disorders – conditions that are alarmingly on the increase in our modern day, stress filled society.
In an age where reliance on medication has reached epic proportions, Pills for the Soul? demonstrates with powerful personal testimonies, scientific reasoning and theological argument that there is another way. The author effectively debunks much of the so called science that seeks to explain away our emotions and soul and instead points us back to the biblical understanding of our spirit, soul and body. This is a compelling book that does not condemn those who use psychiatric medicine, but sensitively guides those in deep need to the abundant way to freedom in emotional healing, which is through Jesus Christ.

Testimonial on book “Pills for the soul?” by Dieter K. MulitzeReview by Goh Swee Eng
Rating
A recent UN human rights office commission published Dainius Puras, professor of psychiatry, who wrote in a report on mental health “There is now unequivocal evidence of the failures of a system that relies too heavily on the biomedical model of mental health services …-New ways of thinking need to permeate the public sector, and mental health must be integrated into the whole of public policy. “ Our little understanding and drug treatment as the way to go has caused much disability in the lives of people with mental and emotional health issues. So does the church think and act like the world, or does it think and act God’s ways in the area of mental and emotional health? The ministry and writings of Rev Dr Dieter K. Mulitze, who is currently a director of Deeper Love Ministries since 1998, has sounded the trumpet a decade ago to stir the church to return to the One who alone has the words of eternal life. He authors a book entitled “Pills for the Soul?”, published in 2008.

It is a refreshing book from a lay theologian and scientist who boldly writes from his own understanding and experiences in helping people who struggled with mental and emotional issues, many for years. He is not anti-psychiatry but his views and positions are that the healing presence of Christ is far superior than any drug or “fixing brains rather than healing souls” ways. Unfortunately the church at large has gone the ways of the world and backs up the current system unwittingly. Over the years, my experience with people as a friend or nurse supervisor has shown me that there must be a better way. My theological training did not prepare me adequately to help such people. But having read Pills for the Soul? my heart just leaped with excitement that finally there are people out there in the church community who understand.

Deeper Love Ministries is dedicated to “healing prayer” to demonstrate the power of God’s Spirit in Jesus’ Name. The book tells many stories of individuals who were healed as Jesus was invited into their lives. This understanding lifts off a burden that I must know how to say the right prayers in ministry. It forces me to go back to Scriptures more to study the ways of Jesus. Powerful testimonies for the church to learn and emulate. If that is the case, people will be running to the churches for healing appointments.

gained some useful insightReview by Catriona paton

This author has researched his subject well and the amazing testimonies add clout to his findings that drugs cannot heal the soul. Only Jesus Christ by the power of his Holy Spirit can plumb the depths of our being, sending forth his truth and his light, to bring true peace that surpasses understanding, which ultimately brings him glory.

Although it was necessary to list statistics and theories, it made boring reading in some parts and a bit intellectual at times, however for the most part I enjoyed the book, and gained some useful insight which will be invaluable when ministering to the mentally ill. (Posted on 07/10/2016)

A must read for the many suffering with mental illnesses.Review by Jennifer Bender

This book is a must for any Christian struggling with emotional problems and Mental Illness. I struggled for years with what many Psychiatrists had diagnosed with Bipolar Mood Disorder, and with an addiction to cutting. Most people had given up on me and had no idea how to help me. Pills for the Soul helps its reader to understand how to access Jesus as the answer to mental illness, no matter how severe. It takes restoring the emotions out of psychiatric hospitals and gives it its rightful place back in a Christ-centered, prayer-filled environment. I was very afraid at first to be disappointed, but I am glad that I persevered and I have been medication free for five years now and I praise God for bringing me to this place.
