After being out of print for 10 years, we are pleased to announce that Jay Adams’ translation of the New Testament and Proverbs is back! It will be available for purchase at the upcoming Annual Conference of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors in Memphis.

The Christian Counselor’s New Testament and Proverbs (CCNT/P) features Dr. Adams’ own translation from the original Greek and Hebrew. To his translation, he has added extensive notes and cross references to assist the counselor during the counseling session. In the back Dr. Adams has included a section of Helps for the counselor which include counseling outlines, check lists, charts, topical worklists, and indexes.

The CCNT/P has a beautiful leather cover with a stiched binding. It retails for $60 but will sell for a special conference price of $48. You can order a copy by calling the Seminary bookstore at (901) 751-3082. The bookstore is open only limited hours so call Tuesday – Thursday, 7:45 – 3:30 CST.

    Apart from the binding, is this version otherwise identical to the 2004 red hardback (currently $450 on Amazon!!!) or have additions/changes been made?

    Not identical, but almost. We increased the font by a half point and eliminated the yellow highlighting and the side brackets, which we concluded were distracting. Jay made a few additions to the notes, and he revised his translation in several places. Some of the Helps in the back were also updated.

    I have the entire set and have been going thru all the commentaries for my devotions this year..
    I have Tirmothy etc and Hebrews etc to finish.
    I do not plan to attend the annual meetings.
    Can I get separatley the additions that Jay has added.
    I have been a member since 10/19/77.

    Jay’s commentary set is different from his New Testament. Those volumes that are still in print can be purchased separately.

    I have a revised edition copyright 1994 that has several typos. I assume these have been corrected.

  6. Donn R Arms October 4, 2019 at 7:56 pm

    Yes, we corrected all we knew of. Let’s just hope we haven’t introduced new ones!

    I was wondering if it were possible to order the book online or via sending an email to the seminary? Thanks in advance.

    Yes! We have finally finished building our online ordering page. Follow this link:
