What the Critics Are Saying About Effective Biblical Counseling "Helpful insights that can be used...to help those who are hurting to move forward to successful Christian living." "Well researched in both psychological and theological data and presented in a readable style that makes it valuable to pastors..." "It is not often that a book the quality of Effective Biblical Counseling comes along." "...members of any church, or other group of Christians, would benefit by such loving biblical concern and counsel." "...loaded with lots of help." "Crabb has done his homework well." "...‘must' reading for the Christian professional."
In Effective Biblical Counseling, Gold Medallion Award-winning author Dr. Larry Crabb Jr. presents a model of counseling which can be gracefully integrated into the functioning of the local church. He asserts that counseling is simply a relationship between people who care, and that its goal is to free people to better worship and serve God.
This book will show you how to help people achieve obedience and character growth in their lives, and establish a sense of personal worth and security along the way.
Dr. Crabb says, "I believe that God has ordained the local church to be his primary instrument to tend to his people's aches and pains. In writing this book I have tried to be of practical help to Christians who want to be more effective in ministering to their suffering brothers and sisters."
