The very definition of mental illness follows: it is an inability to deal with, or cope with reality. As will be documented in the book according to those who followed Mowrer, guilt is the lynchpin of mental illness. Guilt leads to all kinds of fear, and fear/anxiety is present in EVERY mental illness.** Conditions such as schizophrenia are attempts to replace a guilty party; namely, yourself, with someone else. If you are “Bob,” you didn’t do it, your other personality, “Joe,” is guilty. The book will show case histories of people cured of schizophrenia by dealing with Bob’s guilt, and thus making Joe unnecessary. Dr. Jay Adams, the father of biblical counseling which was inspired by Mowrer though Mowrer was irreligious, called schizophrenia “a lie” and was able to help many with that problem accordingly. Of course, this does not include physiological problems that cause hallucinations and affect the brain in other ways.

** This is not the same as physiological problems that affect the brain.
