Publisher's Description

This ground-breaking exploration of the biblical counseling movement’s development since Jay Adams shows how shifts in methodology and style are producing a new generation of increasingly well-balanced counselors.

Author Bio

HEATH LAMBERT (PhD, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) is assistant professor of pastoral theology and coordinator of the department of biblical counseling at Boyce College of the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary. Lambert is also pastor of Biblical Living at Crossing Church in Louisville, Kentucky, and sits on the review board for The Journal of Biblical Manhood and Womanhood and the Biblical Counseling Coalition’s council.

Endorsements

Having been a part of biblical counseling for some twenty-five years, I greatly appreciate and whole-heartedly endorse Dr. Lambert’s incredible work. He informs the novice, the veteran, and the critic on how the great heroes of the biblical counseling movement have built upon one another. He shows how an understanding of the movement must proceed from both historical and biblical contexts. And, as he reflects on the past one hundred years of church history, Lambert contributes a clear perspective on present day biblical counseling by demonstrating its strengths and weaknesses. He does this work in a way that leaves readers challenged, more unified, and strengthened in their faith and resolve concerning the sufficiency of the Scriptures.
-Stuart W. Scott,
Associate Professor of Biblical Counseling, Southern Seminary; author, The Exemplary Husband and Biblical Manhood

Like any significant church movement throughout ecclesiastical history, the biblical counseling movement has been subject to many changes and considerable growth. It has become a worldwide, multi-cultural agent of change for the Church of Jesus Christ. Heath Lambert has written an amazing account of key influences that God, in his perfect sovereignty, has brought about in this movement. This factual account is an important contribution to understanding how and why the biblical counseling movement has had such a profound and lasting impact. It is a must read for anyone who desires to understand this movement.
-John D. Street,
Chair, MABC Graduate Program, The Master’s College and Seminary

This book is an excellent resource for explaining the history of the biblical counseling movement, including the successes and failures along the way. Heath Lambert presents a great framework for all who want to grow and advance biblical counseling.
-Dennis Lee,
Program Manager, Hebron Center Addictions Recovery Program

A thoughtful analysis of the development of a growing discipline, The Biblical Counseling Movement After Adams offers a careful assessment of the intriguing history of the biblical counseling movement. Dr. Lambert goes to great lengths to help the reader understand the rich heritage of biblical counseling, transitions in its development, and wise recommendations for its future. Definitely an insightful read!
-Jeremy Lelak,
President, Association of Biblical Counselors

I deeply appreciate the impact Jay Adams’s teaching has had on my life, writing, family, and ministry. His emphasis on progressive sanctification, of continually growing and changing as followers of Christ, has been especially meaningful. This volume is a fascinating story of how Jay’s students, building on his remarkable foundational work, have caused the biblical counseling movement to grow and change for God’s glory. Thanks, Heath!
-Randy Patten,
Executive Director, National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (NANC)

    I guess anyone who has read about Biblical Counselling would have know Jay Adams, Edward Welch, David Powlison, and many others. But few would know that the there are some differences between the first (Adams) and the second (Welch & Powlison) generation of biblical counseling.

    These differences are presented in this book by Lambert, and he has carefully separated them into 5 chapters, with one remaining chapter on what biblical counsellors ought to continue to work on.

    The first chapter sets the context of biblical counseling, the author (rightfully) acknowledges the seminal and crucial work of Adams, being the sole counsellor who was deeply driven by the truth to retain and restore counseling as the work of pastors and not for the "professionals".

    The second to fifth chapter talks about the various areas where the differences lies between the first and second generation of biblical counselors.

    Three areas were highlighted in this section, first the what of counseling. The model of what counselling should be, what is causing this problems? With an emphasis on thinking in the aspect of how a a person who is being counselled can be both a sinner and sufferer at the same time.

    Second, the how of counselling. How should counselling be done? Emphasis was given to cases of how people are suffering and also on how counsellors should learn to rejoice with those who rejoice and mourn with those who mourn, being able to put themselves in the shoes of others.

    Third, the why of biblical counselling. Why should a christian use biblical counselling? This is one area that is not well addressed by Adams, who sees that since biblical counselling derives itself from the bible, it should be something held by all christians. The second generation has rectified this by trying to engage those within the christian circles and also secular circles as well.

    One area that saw no significant change was on how they thought of the bible, Lambert defends against the notion that the second generation has moved from this position as reported by those outside the biblical counselling movement. Lambert shows how this conclusion is wrong and substantiates this claim from works of both generations of biblical counsellors.

    Lastly, Lambert hopes that work will continue in the motivation aspects of people. Trying to people see that many a times, our problems arises because we seek to worship something else rather than God.

    Lambert very helpful shows in each chapter the similarities and differences you find between the two generations and also presents these materials in a clear manner, I do not recall having difficulty in trying to understand any technical words that he used which is a remarkable feat.

    For those who wish to know how biblical counselling has growth throughout these years, this is the book to read.

    This book was a great read. Not only did it give a great history of biblical counseling, it actually was a reminder of the why behind biblical counseling and explored some of the fundamentals; which aren't complicated. God's truths are not complicated, we humans, complicate everything. It was refreshing!
