You Can Change: Stories from Angola Prison and the Psychology of Personal Transformation

You Can Change: Stories from Angola Prison and the Psychology of Personal Transformation
Can people make positive changes in their lives that really last? Dr. Mark W. Baker has been trying to answer this question for the past twenty-five years as a clinical psychologist. To discover the answer, he went on a quest to find people who have changed their lives in the most dramatic ways, ending up in the largest maximum-security prison in the United States, located in Angola, Louisiana.

Once the most brutal prison in the country, Angola was transformed into one of the most effective sites for rehabilitation in the United States. Baker uses stories from inside Angola, along with his decades of experience as a clinical psychologist, to share with readers the amazing human potential for change and personal growth. Drawing on themes of forgiveness, community, justice, hope, and spirituality, Baker shows all of us how to change our lives for the better–no matter who we are or what we’ve done.

Spiritual Wisdom for a Happier Life: How Your 8 Key Emotions Can Work for You

Available from the following retailers:

There are eight basic human emotions that all people experience–hurt, guilt/shame, anger, anxiety, sorrow, fear, happiness, and love. We might believe we make sense of our lives by thinking through our experiences, but neuroscience shows that the part of our brains that processes emotions is many times faster than the part where logic and reason hold sway. It’s the way God created us, but if we do not develop wisdom for handling our feelings, we may find that our emotions continue to get the best of us.

Thankfully, the Bible is full of guidance about our emotions. With keen insight into human psychology and a gift for drawing wisdom for life from Scripture, Dr. Mark Baker shows readers how they can find comfort and promote emotional health in their lives. Anyone experiencing distress in their relationships or struggling with overwhelming emotions or even traumatic events will find clear biblical help and healing, leading them to a happier, more fulfilled life.
