This past Friday, I was so pleased to receive my long-awaited copy of Christ-Centered Biblical Counseling—the combined work of 40 friends from the Biblical Counseling Coalition. Christ-Centered Biblical Counseling is sure to become a standard text for those interested in understanding the theology and practice of biblical counseling.
David Powlison writes in the Foreword:
“This book affirms that a good counselor is many things simultaneously: tender and firm, responsive yet purposeful, candid and tactful, patient yet urgent, attentive and instructive, profound yet practical, prayerful and hard-working, comforting yet challenging, empathetic and objective, flexible yet committed, faithful to Jesus Christ and relevant to any person facing any trouble…along with many other good and desirable qualities. While the ingredients of deft conversation are hard to capture on paper, the tone and content of what you read will give you a feel for how godly wisdom carries on a compassionate and constructive conversation.”
In this book, Powlison says, we will hear the following core commitments, which we continually promote and affirm on this blog.
