Biblical Counselors must develop two essential skills—acquiring insight into his counselees’ problems and devising creative ways to apply the truths of Scripture to that problem. Jay Adams explains why these skills are vital, but more importantly, shows how you can develop these skills. Effective counselors must grow beyond taking a “cookie-cutter” approach to counseling problems and hone the twin skills of insight and creativity in the counseling room.

Insight and creativity are not inborn qualities or special gifts, both can be learned and developed. Jay Adams will broach no excuses. If growing in effectiveness as a counselor is your goal, this book is your essential guide.
