The introduction to topics is interesting with good examples. The biblical view is given first and then only are the problems broken down. Counseling steps are then provided and even things to lookout for. Good book to have on your bookshelf!
This edition of "Christian Counseling" is a brilliant guide to most questions of interest within this topic. It is both scholarly and practical. It is very readable. Most will appreciate Collins' clear method of presenting an issue, even when disagreeing with a given conclusion. He somehow manages to be fair and even in his discussions while still being firm in his conclusions (when warranted). Highly recommended to any Pastor, minister, or spiritual counselor.
I use this book everyday as a review guide and when I am having a rough day at work. It is very well done and helpfull to all in the Counseling fields and should be in everyones office or home that deal with life on a daily basis. Thank you for and excellent book.
