Overview

This companion to the third edition of Christian Counseling will help readers apply their knowledge to real cases. It presents stories that illustrate the material that is discussed abstractly in Christian Counseling.

Each chapter begins with a brief introduction followed by the case story or stories and three sets of questions designed by Gary Collins to help the reader or group explore the subtleties and details of Christian Counseling. The Discussion Questions focus primarily on the case and raise questions about how the counselee might best be helped. The General Questions focus more broadly on relevant issues that are suggested by the presented case but may extend beyond the case. The Personal Reflection Questions are written for the reader/counselor to reflect on ways in which the case and the topics under discussion could apply personally to the reader.
