Truth Therapy: How the Word of God Sets People Free – Truth Therapy, and the book of the same name, is a method for renewing the mind with the Word of God. Developed in the laboratory of inner city ministry, Dr. Bellini combined contemplative and charismatic spirituality with cognitive behavioral theory to create a new strategy to discipleship, based around the believer’s identity formation in Christ. The premise is simple. The truth sets us free; therefore, the lies of the devil bind us. If we are in bondage to the devil and are defeated in an area, it is because we have believed the enemy’s lies. The truth of God’s Word will set us free. Truth Therapy can be used by individuals, small groups and in counseling to bring liberation and to enable believers to be all that they can be in Christ.
