Scripture and Counseling: God's Word for Life in a Broken World (Biblical Counseling Coalition Books) Reviews
This book was used as a text book by our recently completed biblical counseling class at [OV]Church in Norfolk, VA. It is a great asset in preparing to counsel those in need. I would highly recommend this book to all who have a desire to institute biblical counseling into the ministry of their church.
The very best book for Biblical counseling I have ever read.
Awesome book on the sufficiency of scripture in counseling.
Diving Into the Deep End
There is no doubt that Jay Adams has had an indelible mark on the Christian counseling movement. While he was not the first to place a high view of Scripture as the ground of the practice, he certainly brought a renewed focus to the role of Scripture in Christian counseling. There are many pastors, counselors, and Christian counseling organizations that owe a debt of gratitude to his work.
