Your friend just left his wife. You catch your child posting something inappropriate on the Internet. Someone in your small group is depressed. A relative was just diagnosed with an incurable disease. When those you know and love experience trouble, you don't want to hand out pat answers or religious platitudes. Instead, you want to offer real hope and help from God's Word. You know it's true, but how does an ancient book, written thousands of years ago, connect with our twenty-first century problems?
In CrossTalk: Where Life and Scripture Meet, Michael R. Emlet gives you the tools to connect the Bible to your life and to the lives of your family, friends, neighbors, and coworkers. You will learn to understand people and God's Word in ways that promote gospel-centered, rich conversations that help you and those you know grow in love for God and others. This book will make the whole Bible come alive to you. Instead of platitudes, you can offer a cup of living water to those who are struggling in this broken world.
"If you hunger to apply the Bible to live, or help other people gain an appetite, then feast on this book "
Dave Harvey, author of When Sinners Say I Do
Michael R. Emlet, MDiv, MD, practiced as a family physician for over ten years before becoming a counselor and faculty member at the Christian Counseling & Educational Foundation (CCEF). He is the author of the books CrossTalk: Where Life & Scripture Meet, Descriptions and Prescriptions: A Biblical Perspective on Psychiatric Diagnoses and Medications, and Saints, Sufferers, and Sinners: Loving Others as God Loves Us, and the minibooks Asperger Syndrome, Chronic Pain, Angry Children, Help for the Caregiver, and Overeating: When Enough Isn't Enough.
~Dave Harvey, D.Min. Sovereign Grace Ministries, and author of When Sinners Say I Do
In CrossTalk, Mike Emlet is serious about applying all of Scripture to all of life. Mike teaches us how to weave together the story line of Scripture with our own stories. And Mike gets the story right. It is a gospel story. Mikes passion for the immediacy and centrality of the gospel story comes through on every page.
~Paul Miller Author of Love Walked Among Us and A Praying Life
CrossTalk combines the best of Bible study methods, theology, and counseling to help the sufferer, the sinner, and the saint be radically transformed by Jesus.
~Mark Driscoll Pastor of Mars Hill Church, President of the Acts 29 Church Planting Network, President of Resurgence, and author of Death by Love
If you want to see how the gospel works in your life, transforming you by the renewing of the mind (the principle on which Jesus and the apostles "fixed" broken lives) then here is a very good place to begin. Rather than offer you a prescription "to get you through the next few weeks," Dr. Emlet writes one that transforms deeply and lasts a whole lifetime.
~Sinclair B. Ferguson, Ph.D. Theologian, Author, Senior Minister, First Presbyterian Church, Columbia, S.C.
CrossTalk provides a unique perspective, combining a concern for individual human stories with a focus on Gods much larger story of redemption. CrossTalks approach to reading the Bible and reading people is designed to promote gospel-centered, context-specific use of Scripture in ministry to others, Emlet explains. He reveals how the new book sprang out of two separate streams: his counseling experience and his teaching of a masters-level course in biblical interpretation. The complex tapestries of peoples struggles, sufferings, sin, triumphs and joys that I encounter in the course of my counseling, and the unfolding story of Gods redemption, meet head-on in the pages of this book.
