Most Americans believe “getting counseling” is the remedy for every struggle in life. If people aren’t calling in professional counselors they’re turning to pop psychologists and self-help books. To most, counsel based on God’s Word has become just one more option in a sea of choices. The authors of Counseling by the Book believe the Bible is the only acceptable guidebook for counseling and that the church is the context in which counseling should be praciticed. This book provides an overview of Biblical Counseling, explores theological foundations of Biblical Counseling and provides the reader with practical skills to facilitate the practice of Biblical Counseling.
