The Big Umbrella is a collection of essays and addresses given by the author in the early Seventies. In it, Jay Adams, perhaps the central figure in the 'nouthetic,' or Biblical Counseling Movement, discusses a wide variety of subjects all dealing in some way with counseling from a biblical perspective. Dr. Adams confronts and dismantles the common notion of modern psychology that all people with emotional and behavioral problems are 'sick,' and presents instead a sound argument that sin and our rebellious nature are at the core of these issues. Written in a breezy and informal way, this volume will be an absolute necessity for both the trained biblical counselor who needs a solid reference book and the average Christian in the pew who wants a thorough introduction to this most important subject.
