Also, there are some Christian therapy books that use cognitive therapy. The basic model is that God is truth, and that the further your thinking gets distorted, the further you move from God and his word, so correcting distorted thinking results in moving into a right relationship with God.
Backus, W., & Chapian, M (1980). Telling yourself the truth. Minneapolis: Bethany Fellowship Press.
Thurman, C. (1995). The lies we believe workbook. Nashville: Thomas Nelson.
The TRUTH method in the Thurman book mirrors the ABCDE method. T(trigger event) - R(reckless thinking) - U(unhealthy response) - T(truthful thinking) - H(healthy response).
I often use these texts with my Christian clients who can see this as approaching them on their level with what I have to offer.
