Solid theological foundations of biblical counseling are clearly presented in contrast to humanistic and secular theories of psychological counseling. A practical, proactive, and relevant book for students, church leaders, and lay people. This collection of writers represents some of America's leading biblical teachers and counselors. This groundbreaking book presents a system of biblical truth that brings together people, their problems, and the living God. It is founded on three convictions: That God's Word should be the counseling authority of Christians helping people with broken lives; That counseling is a part of the essential ministry of the local church; That God's people can and should be trained to counsel effectively. Dr. John MacArthur has teamed with Dr. Wayne Mack and their collegues to produce a book for all God's people -- pastors, elders, and lay people. - Publisher.
