Changing Lives with God's Changeless Truth
Christ-Centered Biblical Counseling is a comprehensive guide that will equip God's people to use biblical truth to change lives. More than that, this book will increase people's confidence in the sufficiency and relevancy of God's Word to address real-life issues in a multitude of counseling situations.
Readers of this book will:
Understand clearly why they should embrace biblical counseling
Be encouraged to trust God's Word to provide rich insight for living in the midst of even the most difficult challenges
Enjoy the relevant, pastoral, and theological teaching they have come to appreciate from such noted authors as John Piper, Mark Dever, and Elyse Fitzpatrick
The 28 chapters blend theological wisdom and practical expertise. The first half of the book emphasizes a practical theology of biblical counseling; the second half highlights a practical methodology of biblical counseling. Though accessible to all Christians, the book will especially appeal to pastors and church leaders, counseling practitioners, students, and educators.
