In Curing the Heart, Drs. Eyrich and Hines present a truly biblical model of counseling, and do so in a comprehensive, comprehendible manner. In the heritage of the great Puritan pastors, the authors equip readers to become skillful soul physicians who reconcile and guide believers toward growth in Christ. Focusing on the sufficiency and relevancy of God's Word, Curing the Heart presents the Bible's message about humanity in a living and dynamic way, and shows how to use the Bible to change hearts with God's changeless truth. (Robert W. Kellemen ~ Executive Director, Biblical Counseling Coalition, Lafayette, Indiana)
"Much that passes for Christian Counselling today has sadly lost the proverbial plot! Curing the Heart provides a framework for counselling that is biblically based, multi-dimensional and wisely balanced. The authors offer a quite superb guide to dealing with the troubled heart." (Liam Goligher ~ Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania)
"This is a wonderful guide to use for learning how to counsel those in need, focusing on importance of building that relationship and trust. I felt that authors Eyrich and Hines did an excellent job in preparing this book and providing training for people interested in counselling others. Every pastor or counsellor should have a copy." (Tricia Bleau, Teens 4 Jesus)
"Biblical principles and practices are what we need for pastoral counseling. This book provides both in abundance. Standing firm for your counselee by giving hope. Giving next steps for change in helping. I recommend a careful read of this text for both new and experienced counselors. This is the new reformation from the inside out." (Andrew J. Peterson ~ Vice-President for Global Outreach, Western Seminary, Portland, Oregon)
"Dr. Howard Eyrich serves on the Pastoral Staff at Briarwood Presbyterian Church. He has not only developed, but put into practice, the model of Biblical Counseling which is developed for you in this book. Our Lord has used him successively to minister to many people in our congregation and community, to train others and to multiply biblical counseling through the transferable model that you will find on the following pages. The blessing of this ministry is evident, not only in the lives of the people that it touches, but also in the many lay people that he has trained to assist in the counseling ministry at Briarwood." (Harry L. Reeder ~ Pastor of Preaching & Leadership, Briarwood Presbyterian Church, Birmingham, Alabama)
"...outstanding! Their multidimensional approach focuses on several facets of counseling that help the counselor be fully equipped to deal with every kind of problem situation. Get one for yourself and one for everyone you know who is interested in counseling people God's way." (Ed Hindson ~ Dean, Institute of Biblical Studies, Liberty University, Lynchburg, Virginia)
...the Curing the Heart model of Biblical counseling changed the course of my ministry. It equipped me with the biblical knowledge and tools to minister to those in distress, debt and discontent. (Rev. John Battle, Alpine, Alabama)

I also like the appendix in the back of the book, along with scripture and subject index. It is well worth reading a number of times.
Section one presents the need for a biblical approach, arguing for the development of a biblical psychology where the Creator informs us about the nature of the creature. Eyrich's biblical psychology presents the Bible's message about humanity in a living and dynamic way, and shows how to use the Bible as a counseling tool that targets the heart.
In section two, he shifts from a biblical counseling model to the biblical counselor. Here he highlights the content, character, and competence of the biblical counselor.
Section three overviews the counseling process. Here we have a plethora of counseling intervention methods, each explained biblically and practically.
This excellent manual is made even better by the inclusion of four appendices with practical helps for actually ministry.
"Curing the Heart" should be mandatory reading for lay leaders, pastors, counselors, and students interested in understanding and developing their model of biblical counseling and their skillfulness as a biblical counselor.
Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," "Biblical Counseling," "Martin Luther's Counseling," and "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
