The word crisis comes from the Greek krisis, which literally means decision. When trials, temptations, disasters, personal sin, or anything else bring us to a point of crisis, how we respond – the decisions we make and actions we take – will either reflect a faithful, obedient, God-honoring heart or a doubtful, self-centered one. Because crises bring about the need to make many decisions, Christians are afforded opportunities to glorify God by making choices and acting in ways that honor Him. The Biblical Crisis Intervention model presented in this book provides a template upon which the counselor can base his or her crisis ministry. As the world provides temporary solutions to those in crisis, the Biblical Crisis Intervention Model offers an opportunity for those in crisis to find the healing that God offers.
