Biblical Counseling Basics: Roots, Belief and Future
2 in stock
Since God first spoke words of life to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, counseling has been a foundational to God’s people. The most basic questions of psychology—who we are, why we do what we do, and how do we change—are answered in God’s words to his people. In the Bible God speaks profoundly to each person about the most important things in life.
In Biblical Counseling Basics, Dr. Jeremy Lelek offers a comprehensive approach to biblical counseling, beginning by retracing the movement’s history, then exploring its basic tenets, and finally providing helpful insight for the future of biblical counseling.
Helping to connect the dots between soul care and theology, and including real life case studies, this resource encourages readers to apply theology to current issues and the here-and-now needs of others.
Biblical Counseling Basics encourages counselors that the use of the Bible is central to their practices and development. Offering the Bible as the preeminent resource to address even the most complex mental and emotional struggles, Biblical Counseling Basics reminds readers that the finished work of Christ is the greatest hope for all believers.
“Lelek’s book does what no other biblical counseling book does. It gives you a helpful history, it defines what it really means to counsel biblically, and it offers guidance for the future of soul care. If you have been called to care for people, this book should be in your library.” ---Paul David Tripp
