Overview


Almost anyone with a desire to help others can be a people helper, but often those Christians who feel most called to counsel are unsure of how to use the Bible to ease another person’s problems.

This book will guide you to a practical, working knowledge of Scripture, the character of God, and the basics of the Christian faith—the core of what Christian counselors must know to be truly effective in helping others. Tyndale House Publishers

    Excellent Resource

    In this book, Dr. Gary Collins has put together a comprehensive guide to help those who endeavor to improve their efforts in Christian-based counseling. Each chapter is well planned and effectively presents a case scenario and proceeds to examine the problem from a biblical perspective. Within each chapter is also a assessment of various aspects that lead to these problems as well as suggestions for handling them in a Christian counseling environment.
