Drawing from a wide range of resources and experts in Christian soul care, this book is a well-researched, easy-to-read, and practical guide for students and counselors both inside and outside of biblical counseling who want to better understand its aspects, methods, and goals. Biblical Counseling Basics equips readers with practical skills for one- another ministry and engages them with their divine call to counsel. Since God first spoke words of life to Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden, counseling has been a foundational to God's people. The most basic questions of psychology who we are, why we do what we do, and how do we change are answered in God's words to his people. In the Bible God speaks profoundly to each person about the most important things in life. In Biblical Counseling Basics, Dr. Jeremy Lelek offers a comprehensive approach to biblical counseling, beginning by retracing the movement's history, then exploring its basic tenets, and finally providing helpful insight for the future of biblical counseling. Helping to connect the dots between soul care and theology, and including real life case studies, this resource encourages readers to apply theology to current issues and the here-and-now needs of others. Biblical Counseling Basics encourages counselors that the use of the Bible is central to their practices and development. Offering the Bible as the preeminent resource to address even the most complex mental and emotional struggles, Biblical Counseling Basics reminds readers that the finished work of Christ is the greatest hope for all believers.
