Simon Judas Syndrome (1)The Judas Syndrome: Why Good People Do Awful Things

Judas betrayed Jesus with a kiss.  But “good” Christians betray their lack of genuine faith in Christ and his message with their unseemly actions.  Filled with many examples, The Judas Syndrome illustrates the role genuine faith can play in changing a person’s life and avoiding the pitfalls that create troubled relationships.  Faith can really save us, but genuine, transforming faith is not easily undertaken nor can it be confidently sustained alone.  In his first book specifically written for the Christian audience, Dr. Simon draws on his years of clinical experience to testify to the power of faith that is not merely professed but rather embraced to the degree that it truly transforms.  This book was released on Feb 1, 2013 and is available for purchase online at Amazon.com.
