Counseling One Another

Helping you grow in God's all-sufficient truth and grace

Counseling One Another


The LifeLine mini-books from Shepherd Press are designed for personal growth, one-another discipleship ministry, and are excellent for small groups! Inexpensive pricing makes these 64-page booklets accessible to all. Four features make them stand out in the growing crowd of excellent counseling resources.

  1. They are rich in biblical content and life experience and are written to “the person in the pew.”
  2. Though written to the believer in Christ the conversion of the reader is never assumed. Therefore, each booklet contains a clear gospel call to repentant faith in Jesus, making them effective evangelistic tools. Since they address obvious, pointed needs in real life they “connect” quickly with the reader.
  3. Each booklet contains Personal Application Projects that are great time-savers for busy counselors, pastors, and small group leaders.
  4. They are written by men and women committed to biblical counseling and, in as many cases as possible, by those who have “been there,” either by personal experience, or by ministry experience a particular area.

The HELP books are featured in an author interview at the Biblical Counseling Coalition site. There are already 28 titles in this rapidly growing series. The series was originally published by Day One Christian Ministries in the UK, but is now an imprint of Shepherd Press [most titles are now available as E-books and are being gradually re-introduced in print copies).
