Product Description

If Christianity is to reassert its cultural relevancy, the field of counseling is one area in which it MUST make an impact. Mental health is an area that is almost entirely dominated by the secular world, yet little or no progress is being made. If we believe that Jesus came to heal, then there must be a method by which Christian counselors can perform their duties in accordance with Scripture. Offering insightful exegesis and specific case studies in Counsel from the Cross authors Elyse Fitzpatrick and Dennis E. Johnson demonstrate how this can be done.

Publisher's Description

<p>Demonstrates the "why" and the "how" of consistently biblical, gospel-centric counseling, whether in the pastor's study or over coffee with a friend.</p> <p>With the evermore apparent failure of modern psychotherapies and a discomfort with pharmacological strategies, many churches are reaffirming the sufficiency and power of the Scriptures to change lives.</p> <p>To aid churches in ministering to broken and hurting people, the authors of <em>Counsel from the Cross</em> present a counseling model based on Scripture, powered by the work of the Wonderful Counselor, Jesus Christ. Through careful exegesis and helpful case studies, they demonstrate the "why" and the "how" of consistently biblical, gospel-centered counseling.</p> <p>The authors' combined backgrounds-one, a woman trained in biblical counseling and the other, a male professor of practical theology-bring balance to this work, making it relevant for those who counsel as part of pastoral ministry and for those involved in friendship mentoring or discipleship.</p>
