Publisher's Description

Caring for Souls is a helpful primer on the intersection of psychology and Scripture.

How psychology fits into Christianity is a thorny and often confusing subject for many. There is a great deal of disagreement about the integration of the two, even among experts.

In Caring for Souls, Gary Bredfeldt and Harry Shields address the intersection of Scripture and psychology in Christian counseling. The authors address different approaches and analyze them against Scripture, and then provide readers with practical teaching on implementing biblical counseling.

    This book is absolutely wonderful!The book consists of two parts: first the theory by Bredfeldt, then practical advice by Shields. Bredfeldt presents what different methods and approaches teach (fair and concise), then takes a position with a clear explanation as to why this position is taken. A college class could not be more thorough (plus, he is never wordy or boring).The practical side is thorougly practical.All together, the book has answered most of my questions that I ever had about counseling. I would call it a must read.
