On Friday, September 11 we held a small celebration in the home of Jay and Betty Jane Adams to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the publication of Competent to Counsel. Special guests included:

  • Dr. Mike Spradlin, President of Mid-America Baptist Theological Seminary
  • Dr. John Babler, Newly appointed Charman of the Biblical Counseling Department at Mid-America
  • Mr. Nathan Cole, Vice-President for Institutional Advancement at Mid-America
  • Pastor Bill Slattery, Pastor of Redeemer Presbyterian Church
  • Dr. Dale Johnson, Executive Director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors

At that time, we presented to Dr. Adams a festschrift in his honor entitled Whole Counsel: The Public and Private Ministries of the Word. Click on the book cover to order your copy from our bookstore.
