While many excel at meeting physical needs, believers are called upon to meet emotional needs as well. Dr. Moody is a qualified voice guiding the reader through proper ways to respond to those suffering and offer help that will lead to restoration. Both the emotional and spiritual needs are addressed through Scripture and biblical examples in this book. Dr. Moody prepares the reader to respond in ways that offer real hope for those who are hurting.

Moody shares many examples from the Bible of those dealing with issues still present in our modern times. The author also provides an extensive list of resources related to each topic including ways to contact those providing professional help when needed. This book gives an excellent overview of situations one may face in helping someone suffering from emotional issues, addiction, and mental health issues.
