Publisher's Summary

Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. As a ministry, counseling must be defined according to sound biblical theology rather than secular principles of psychology.

For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling…and bad theology leads to bad counseling.

A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that unpacks the core theological convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.

Informative and hopeful

This book was an option on a list of required reading for ACBC and I thoroughly enjoyed it it was very informative, encouraging, riddled with hope in the sufficiency of the Scriptures. It was helpful in delineating the differences in Biblical and Christian counseling l, which I appreciated greatly. I’m coming from secular therapy as a Christian and was convicted in the way that I was guilty of “integrating” my faith with “other things”, believing that was sufficient and pleasing to the Lord. Grateful for God’s grace to show me the difference.
