From the Back Cover
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.

Believe unto the Gospel "Good News" of the Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and you shall be saved!" By faith ALONE that He is who He said He is: I and the Father are One (John 10:30). Jesus is God, that He died for your sins and rose again defeating death. It is by Christ ALONE one can be saved (John 14:6).
For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlastinglife (John 3:16)
