Publisher's Summary

Connecting sound biblical doctrine to the practice of effective counseling.

Jay E. Adams—vocal advocate of a strictly biblical approach to counseling and author of the highly influential book Competent to Counsel—firmly believes that the Bible itself provides all the principles needed for understanding and engaging in holistic counseling.

But in order to bring the practice of counseling—whether by professional therapists or by the church—under biblical guidance, we first have to deepen our understanding of Scripture.

A Theology of Christian Counseling is the connection between solid theology (the study of God) and its practical application. Each of its sections are devoted to increasing our understanding of counseling's potential by looking at it through the lens of doctrines such as:

  • Prayer (and the doctrine of God).
  • Human Sin (and the doctrine of Man).
  • Redemption (and the doctrine of Salvation).
  • Forgiveness (and the doctrine of Sanctification).

"No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers…No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor's stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling!" (Jay E. Adams).

With this book, you will gain insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs your approach to how you help people change.
