How do we view and use the Bible to help people to grow in grace and to help one another to deal biblically with the profound issues of suffering and sin?
Far too few people who call themselves “Christian counselors” or “biblical counselors” know how the core doctrines of the faith ought to inform their counseling model and ought to impact their counselees.
“Scripture and Counseling: God’s Word for Life in a Broken World is representative of the type of theologically sophisticated and pastorally sensitive counseling literature needed in evangelical churches” (Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr.).
“Scripture and Counseling is both theologically robust and pastorally helpful. On its pages you will find a lively discussion that will bring you up to speed on the conversation taking place among contemporary biblical counseling.”—J.D. Greear, Pastor, The Summit Church, Durham, NC
Sadly, in far too many churches, the people of God are second-class citizens when it comes to the work of the ministry. Christ’s vision is so different.
As I consult for local churches, I repeatedly hear the concern that “our church seems to be going in a million different directions.” We need Christ’s grand vision for His church.
