downloadOver 50 times in the New Testament Christians are taught to one another each other. The reason God’s people can one another each other is because of the gospel. The gospel provides the fuel which God’s people go in the Christian life. Christians need to learn practically how to one another each other for this is how they take what they know in their heads and apply it to their hearts. We are to take what we know apply it to our hearts and to one another. But how do we do that? To answer this question is why Dr. Robert Kellemen wrote Gospel-Centered Counseling How Christ Changes Lives.

Gospel-Centered Counseling looks at the richness of God’s Word, wisdom for a broken world, Jesus the great physician, our view of God, spiritual warfare, spiritual friendship, our view of people, our role as soul physicians, spiritual adultery, diagnosing the fallen condition of the soul, applying the gospel to suffering, regeneration, growth in grace in community, eternal perspective, gospel-centered growth in grace, progressive sanctification, and living the gospel.

Gospel-Centered Counseling is a biblical approach to caring for others in order to equip readers to change lives with Christ’s changeless Word. This book is centered on Christ and focuses on balancing truth and love. This is a guidebook through eight ultimate questions that every person asks and every biblical counselor must address. This is an important book for any Christian wanting to learn to care for other Christian. This book is a must read for every Bible college and seminary student preparing for any ministry role. This book should be read by pastors and ministry leaders who wish to train others in biblical counseling. This is the first volume in the Equipping Biblical Counselors Series, a comprehensive two-part biblical counseling training curriculum for the local church that weaves biblical insight with compassionate Christian care. Book two forthcoming is Gospel Conversations a relational training manual that equips readers to develop twenty-one biblical counseling competencies.

Whether you are new to ministering to others or you have decades of experience, Gospel-Centered Counseling has something for you. Combining the best practices in Christian counseling with sound biblical exegesis, and practical teaching, Gospel Counseling will help Christian readers to one another in a way that glorifies God. I highly recommend this book and believe it will help to continue to see churches that make, mature, and multiply disciples to the glory of God.
