Sin. Grace. Christian Counseling. How do these fit together? In Christian theology sin and grace are intrinsically interconnected. Teacher and counselor Mark McMinn believes that Christian counseling, then, must also take account of both human sin and God's grace. For both sin and grace are distorted whenever one is emphasized without the other. McMinn, noting his own tendencies and the temptation to stereotype different Christian approaches to counseling along this theological divide, aims to help all those preparing for or currently serving in the helping professions. Expounding the proper relationship of sin and grace, McMinn shows how the full truth of the Christian gospel works itself out in the functional, structural and relational domains of an integrative model of psychotherapy.
Mark R. McMinn (Ph.D., Vanderbilt University) is professor of psychology at George Fox University, where he teaches in the graduate department of clinical psychology. He is a licensed clinical psychologist, board certified with the American Board of Professional Psychology, and a Fellow of the American Psychological Association. He has written several books, including Making the Best of Stress, Care for the Soul, Why Sin Matters, Finding Our Way Home and Psychology, Theology, and Spirituality in Christian Counseling.
McMinn's writing style is clear and easy to digest. Worth owning. I strongly recommend it.-- Rodney L. Bassett, Journal of Psychology, Vol. 8, No. 1, 2009
"Christians in counseling tend toward being informed theologically but naive clinically, or informed clinically but naive theologically. McMinn breaks out of this either-or model and instructs us in how to be both theologically learned and clinically sound. Sin and Grace in Christian Counseling brings the depth and breadth of sin/grace theology into the applied world of twenty-first-century counselors."-- James N. Sells, Ph.D., professor and director, Ph.D. Program in Counselor Education and Supervision, Regent University
"Mark McMinn has done it again: this book is a must-have for people interested in knowing how to integrate faith into practice. For all our desire to do so, far too often Christian mental-health professionals struggle to deeply integrate theological truths with psychological science. Sin and Grace in Christian Counseling is a wonderful example of what must be done if we are to be truly integrative in our clinical work. This work is clear, concise, practical and personal. Whether you are a long-established clinician or a brand new graduate student, you will find something of value here."-- C. Jeffrey Terrell, Ph.D., president, Psychological Studies Institute
"It is always a pleasure to read what Mark McMinn has recently written. In Sin and Grace in Christian Counseling Mark engages his readers in a conversation about these concepts, as well as the practical applications for clinical practice. He also opens up a dialogue between biblical counselors and integrationists by opening up a dialogue within himself about sin and grace."-- Mark A. Yarhouse, Psy.D., licensed clinical psychologist, professor of psychology, Regent University, and coauthor of Modern Psychopathologies: A Comprehensive Christian Appraisal
"For too long Christian psychologists have avoided a detailed study of sin and grace as it pertains to therapeutic practice. I am convinced that this book is long overdue and an important addition to the Christian counseling literature. It is refreshing to see how Mark guides the therapist to bring matters pertaining to sin, deception, grace and repentance into the clinical setting while paying attention to relational and functional aspects of change."-- Philip G. Monroe, Psy.D., associate professor of counseling and psychology and director, M.A. in Counseling Program, Biblical Seminary
