It is very readable and so far very informational.

I haven't gotten all the way through the book, (it's for a class), but what I have read has been great.

This book has everything a Christian Counselor would want to know and need to learn in counseling clients with a blend of biblical principles and psychological training. It is an outstanding book, incorporating years of experiences and practical studies with methodology that has been proven by both the American Psychological Association and the American Association of Christian Counselors to benefit the client and counselor. I highly recommend Christian Counseling - 3rd Edition to anyone who is considering becoming a counselor as part of a church lay counseling ministry or a professional clinician working with those who deal with Christian/spiritual issues. It is a must read! Well worth the time and investment.

Format: Paperback
Dr. Collin's books have became indispensable for counselors, not only in the US, but around the world, as is my situation. There are not good reliable books edited in Spanish, and the ones we have are mostly from Jay Adams. I am sorry to hear that his works are compared to Dr.Collin's writings. In fact are two different things. Chrsitan Counseling help many people to understand their own issues, as well as, other people's issues. The problem with Jay Adams is that he's lost in an ontological labyrinth.

This book is a must for anyone who is involved in counseling even more so for those in Christian counseling. This book gives a good insight into what it takes to be in Christian counselor and the tools needed for this roll in life.

Collins book is a great book for the professional to the layperson. It is written very clearly and does not contain alot of fluff. I highly recommend it for anyone seeking to obtain a more comprehsive understanding of Christian Counseling, the issues that Counselees are faced with how to direct them toward healing.

I'm reading this book from cover to cover but I like the fact that it is formatted to be used as resource guide too. It is very readable and so far very informational. I like his take on combining traditional psychology and Christian counseling....these two are not mutually exclusive and can be a great help to each other.
If you like helping others this is a good book to give you good info.

Format: Paperback
This is an excellent thorough Christian counselor's guide. It should be required reading for all Christian counselor's. It is required in most Biblical counseling programs.

Every Christian counselor and maybe even pastor's should have this in their reference library.
