Dave Powlison has profoundly impacted my ministry by teaching me the discipline of seeing life through the lens of Scripture rather than the other way around. The crumbs from Daves tablehis most casual commentshave nourished me for years.
In the book, David's conviction that for us to rightly understand people, their problems and the solution to those problems, we must see them through the lens of Scripture comes through with clarity. With fresh insight and skillful creativity, he demonstrates that the Bible when rightly understood speaks with the full weight of God's own authority.
If you need help understanding your own life or desire to help others do the same, Seeing with New Eyes will transform your perspective and focus your faith on the sufficient truth of Scripture and on our Scripture's God. I heartily recommend it!
Reading this book is a rich experience for counselors and for everyone who wants to apply God's Word to his or her life.
If you want to press in the right direction, both in your personal spiritual development and your growth as a counselor, read these wise words. Powlisons grasp of the intersection between lofty theology and daily practice is truly amazing
