Rezensionen
"I enjoy reading scholarly books that offer different perspectives and new insights. Browning-Helsel's book is one of those that open up new vistas to explore and study, whether for students, pastoral ministers, or educators. ... this is one of the books that help us engage with the macro-political and economic issues that impact people within and outside of the church. More particularly, it is a book that challenges us to think seriously about class and its relation to mental suffering." (Ryan Lamothe, Journal of Pastoral Theology, Vol. 26 (3), February, 2017)

"This book deals with various practical reasons that cause mental illness in which economical issue contribute a lot. The author gives practical suggestions to equip the minsters and the counselors to deals with economic and social context in which the patients live. ... In this context, this book is very relevant and useful to the students of psychology and to anyone who intend to help people affected with mental illness." (Paul Sigamony, New Life Theological Journal, Vol. 6 (2), December, 2016)
