Join the growing number of lay people, pastors, professional counselors, and students who are using Soul Physicians as the twenty-first-century theology manual for Christian counseling. Learn our Great Physician¿s authoritative truth about: ♥ Nourishing the Hunger of the Soul: Preventative Medicine¿God¿s Word ♥ Knowing the Creator of the Soul: The Great Physician¿The Trinity ♥ Examining the Spiritual Anatomy of the Soul: People¿Creation ♥ Diagnosing the Fallen Condition of the Soul: Problems¿Fall ♥ Prescribing God¿s Cure for the Soul: Solutions¿Redemption ♥ Envisioning the Final Healing of the Soul: Home¿Glorification ♥ Dispensing God¿s Care for the Soul: Spiritual Friends¿Sanctification ¿The Puritan writers were excellent counselors because they were also excellent theologians. Dr. Kellemen follows in that rich tradition; his quality leadership in counselor education flows from the depth of his theological underpinnings. Few books on counseling today are true to biblical hermeneutics; Soul Physicians is one significant exception, which is why I am using it as a required text for our course exploring Methods of Biblical Change.¿ ¿Dr. Dow Pursley, Clinical Director of Counseling Programs, Baptist Bible College Graduate School ¿Soul Physicians is an outstanding contribution to the fields of counseling and pastoral theology. It has succeeded remarkably in uniting counseling theory and the authority of Scripture. I know of no other work that is so insightful and equally practical. I strongly recommend Soul Physicians to pastors, educators, and everyone who is interested in intensifying practical sanctification.¿ ¿Dr. Don Fowler, Professor of Biblical Studies, Liberty University ¿Unlike many other books currently available, Soul Physicians can easily serve as a primary and comprehensive resource for those studying the theology of soul care. Dr. Kellemen¿s innovative approach places the theology of soul care in the appropriate context of the Christian¿s spiritual formation and discipleship. The text provides the vital addition of significant questions for the reader¿s study and reflection, thus providing further options for classroom use in plenary or small group discussion.¿ ¿Dr. Mara Crabtree, Associate Professor of Spiritual Formation and Christian Spirituality, Regent University School of Divinity ¿Soul Physicians is a truly meaningful and valuable treatment of the theological, spiritual, and psychological dimensions of counseling, soul care, spiritual formation, and the relationships between them. It can serve as a textbook, a personal study guide, or a resource handbook for those desiring to approach people-helping from a thoroughly Christian and biblical viewpoint.¿ ¿Dr. Richard Averbeck, Professor of Old Testament and Semitic Languages, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; Director of the Spiritual Formation Forum
