RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Most comprehensive guide to Christian Counseling.April 14, 2011RICHARD HOLTClovis, NMAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This 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.
