Developments in Biblical Counseling
Title: Developments in Biblical Counseling
Publisher: Reformation Heritage Books
Are you looking for a brief introduction to what the biblical counseling movement is and how it has changed over the years? In Developments in Biblical Counseling, J. Cameron Fraser turns a journalistic eye to this question and presents a concise assessment. Introducing us to the formative work of Jay Adams, Fraser outlines several themes of biblical counseling that became foundational for the movement as a whole and observes how the movement received criticisms from outside and made necessary developments from within. He points out that some of these developments have an affinity with Puritan approaches to counseling that Adams rejects but may point in a more consistently biblical direction.
"Fair, compelling, and helpful. I hope the book sells very well, and that it advances the cause of Christ as the church grows up in maturity by increasingly learning how to speak the truth in love. It will be required reading in a course of mine." - Heath Lambert, Executive Director, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. Associate Professor of Counseling at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
