Counseling resources for Christians tend to bog readers down with psychological and theological jargon, but Gary R. Collins’s Christian Counseling: A Comprehensive Guide has stood apart from these since 1980. This revised and expanded third edition offers solid biblical teaching on how to counsel and wise guidance on a broad range of situations counselors are likely to encounter.
Christian Counseling provides updated, extensive coverage of the most common issues troubling those who seek counseling, such as
- Marriage and relationship problems
- Career decisions
Clearly written and easy-to-read, Christian Counseling offers biblical teaching on principles of how to counsel and many common problems that bring people to a counselor. This practical, useful guide from Gary R. Collins, first president of the American Association of Christian Counselors, will continue to serve Christians as a sourcebook for improvement of people-helping skills.
Christian Counseling provides lasting value as a textbook for students and their professors, a training tool for lay counselors, a source of information for those seeking a greater understanding of human behavior, and a primer on the biblical foundation for Christian counseling.
