Title
Toward Guidelines for the Development, Evaluation, and Utilization of Christian Self-Help Materials
Abstract

This article explores the rapid proliferation of Christian self-help books, the advantages and potential problems relative to their use, and the literature regarding self-help utilization patterns among practicing mental health professionals. The authors then recommend consideration of several general guidelines for authors, reviewers, and professionals who might write, evaluate, or recommend self-help books to clients. These are offered as "€œquality control"€ standards which may serve to improve both the value of Christian self-help materials and the manner in which they are utilized.
