Publisher's Description

This book is really a text book for anyone involved or interested in Christian counselling. Both the authors teach the subject at a theological seminary in the States. Their influences include Jay Adams, a leading Christian psychologist, and Francis Schaeffer.

Section 1 helps to make a case for a different style of counselling, based on the Bible and on Christian principles. Only a Biblical framework can explain the "why?" of human behaviour. The approach is therefore holistic as it tackles the heart of the human problem - the problem of the human heart.

Section 2 gives background as well as practical guidelines to those interested in becoming Christian Counsellors.

Section 3 outlines the Counselling Process and give practical worksheets and guidelines for helping someone out of their situation.


This model of psychology is very much more prescriptive than anything in secular counselling, or in many Christian circles, but the authors are consistent in their approach and they have been teaching the material for many years. There are good appendices to aid the reader.

Editorial Reviews

"Much that passes for Christian Counselling today has sadly lost the proverbial plot! Curing the Heart provides a framework for counselling that is biblically based, multi-dimensional and wisely balanced. The authors offer a quite superb guide to dealing with the troubled heart."
"This is a wonderful guide to use for learning how to counsel those in need, focusing on importance of building that relationship and trust. I felt that authors Eyrich and Hines did an excellent job in preparing this book and providing training for people interested in counselling others. Every pastor or counsellor should have a copy."
"Biblical principles and practices are what we need for pastoral counseling. This book provides both in abundance. Standing firm for your counselee by giving hope. Giving next steps for change in helping. I recommend a careful read of this text for both new and experienced counselors. This is the new reformation from the inside out."
"In Curing the Heart, Drs. Eyrich and Hines present a truly biblical model of counseling, and do so in a comprehensive, comprehendible manner. In the heritage of the great Puritan pastors, the authors equip readers to become skillful soul physicians who reconcile and guide believers toward growth in Christ. Focusing on the sufficiency and relevancy of God's Word, Curing the Heart presents the Bible's message about humanity in a living and dynamic way, and shows how to use the Bible to change hearts with God's changeless truth."

"Dr. Howard Eyrich serves on the Pastoral Staff at Briarwood Presbyterian Church. He has not only developed, but put into practice, the model of Biblical Counseling which is developed for you in this book. Our Lord has used him successively to minister to many people in our congregation and community, to train others and to multiply biblical counseling through the transferable model that you will find on the following pages. The blessing of this ministry is evident, not only in the lives of the people that it touches, but also in the many lay people that he has trained to assist in the counseling ministry at Briarwood."
"...outstanding! Their multidimensional approach focuses on several facets of counseling that help the counselor be fully equipped to deal with every kind of problem situation. Get one for yourself and one for everyone you know who is interested in counseling people God's way."
...the Curing the Heart model of Biblical counseling changed the course of my ministry. It equipped me with the biblical knowledge and tools to minister to those in distress, debt and discontent.
