Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. As a ministry, counseling must be defined according to sound biblical theology rather than secular principles of psychology. For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling…and bad theology leads to bad counseling. A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that covers the history of the biblical counseling movement, the core convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.
A Theology of Christian Counseling connects biblical doctrine with practical living. Salvation, that central concern of Protestant theology, is often too narrowly defined. It is thought of as “being saved from the consequences of sin.” But God is doing much more. He is making something new out of the old sinful nature. He is, in Christ, making new creatures.“No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers. . . . No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor’s stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling!”In this book the reader will gain an insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs a biblical approach to counseling. And the connection between solid theology and practical application will become compelling. This book is one-of-a-kind.
Soul Physicians provides a relevant, in-depth theology of biblical counseling. Just as medical students examine the anatomy of the human body, so soul physicians need to understand the anatomy of the human soul. Soul Physicians offers a theological foundation for the ministry of biblical counseling, soul care, and spiritual direction, equipping the counselor to make Christian counseling truly Christian.
The Christian world has been challenged by the theological mind and prolific pen of Jay Adams. The challenge has been to do ministry biblically. One of the primary emphases of this challenge has been to help believers handle all of life by the proper interpretation and application of God?s sufficient Book ? the Bible. ?Maturing the saints,? ?discipling,? ?counseling,? ?ministering the Word,? ?biblical mentoring? are all words and phrases that describe the process Dr. Adams has challenged us with ? that is using God?s Word to help God?s people grow and change to become more like God?s Son, Jesus Christ. This study guide is a tool designed to serve as a companion to Dr. Adams? book, A Theology of Christian Counseling. A Theology of Christian Counseling (originally entitled More Than Redemption) was one of Dr. Adams? first books. It discusses several areas of doctrine including the doctrine of man (Anthropology), salvation (Soteriology), God (Theology Proper), the Scripture (Bibliology), and the local church (Ecclesiology). Each doctrine is treated from a ?Biblical sufficiency? position and applied in practical, relevant ways. After all, the Word of God is ?useful? (II Timothy 3:16) for all of ?life and godliness? (II Peter 1:2, 3). Having a systematic understanding of key areas of doctrine will equip you to both live and minister truth more effectively. A Theology of Christian Counseling has been a tremendous help to me in establishing a solid theology for biblical ministry, and I?m convinced it will do the same for you. My desire is to provide a vehicle that will aide the student in using this book for the greatest profit. The study guide questions emphasize only the content of the book itself, helping the student pull pertinent truth for growth in life and ministry. The questions will serve to focus your attention, and provide both accountability for you and a record of your study. Local churches, men?s and women?s groups, small group Bible studies, Bible Institutes, colleges, seminaries, as well as individuals, will benefit from using this study guide.

Biblical counselors have worked for decades to demonstrate that God’s resources in Scripture are sufficient to help people with their counseling-related problems. In Counseling the Hard Cases, editors Stuart Scott and Heath Lambert use the true stories of real patients to show how the truths of God’s Word can be released to bring help, hope, and healing into the lives of those who struggle with some of the most difficult psychiatric diagnoses. From pastors and academics to physicians and psychiatrists, a world-class team of contributing counselors share accounts of Scripture having helped overcome bipolar, dissociative identity, and obsessive compulsive disorders, postpartum depression, panic attacks, addiction, issues from childhood sexual abuse, homosexuality, and more. The book also shows how the graces of Christ, as revealed in the Bible, brought powerful spiritual change to the lives of such people who seemed previously burdened beyond hope by mental and emotional roadblocks. Contributors include John Babler, Ph.D., Kevin Carson, D.Min., Laura Hendrickson, M.D., Garrett Higbee, Psy.D., Robert Jones, D.Min., Martha Peace, RN, Steve Viars, D.Min., and Dan Wickert, M.D.
