Counseling Under the Cross: How Martin Luther Applied the Gospel to Daily Life
7 in stock
Martin Luther was not only a theologian, a writer and a preacher, he was a pastoral counselor who longed for peace with God. Now, 500 years after he posted his 95 theses to the door of the Wittenberg Castle church, his teachings on gospel-centered and cross-focused pastoral care can transform our approach to the ways we care for souls.
In this book, biblical counselor Bob Kellemen mines the riches of Luther’s letters of spiritual counsel to give readers a new understanding of how Luther engaged in the personal ministry of the gospel. He guides pastors, counselors, lay leaders and friends toward a deeper understanding of the gospel that will directly impact their personal ministry to others.
“... as you read Luther in Counseling Under the Cross, what you find is a theologian who cared deeply for God’s people... Kellemen’s Counseling Under the Cross is a rich collection of Luther’s stories, quotes, and lively vignettes that trace out how Luther’s care of souls puts Christ squarely at the center of everything!”
