Michael Emlet has written a readable and insightful guide on how to move from the ancient text to our present situation. This book is especially important for counselors, pastors, and seminarians, but all thoughtful Christians will benefit from reading it. --Tremper Longman III, Ph.D., Robert H. Gundry Professor of Biblical Studies, Westmont College, author of Reading the Bible with Heart and Mind
Are you, like me, unsatisfied with your ability to link passages to problems or people? With poignant insights shaped by years of teaching and counseling, Mike Emlet helps us connect the dots between Scripture and permanent change. If you hunger to apply the Bible to life, or to help other people gain an appetite, then feast on this book! --Dave Harvey, D.Min., Sovereign Grace Ministries and author of When Sinners Say I Do
In CrossTalk, Mike Emlet is serious about applying all of Scripture to all of life. Mike teaches us how to weave together the story line of Scripture with our own stories. And Mike gets the story right. It is a gospel story. Mike's passion for the immediacy and centrality of the gospel story comes through on every page. --Paul Miller, Author of Love Walked Among Us and A Praying Life
