READING: A Theology of Christian Counseling connects biblical doctrine with practical living. Salvation, that central concern of Protestant theology, is often too narrowly defined. It is thought of as “being saved from the consequences of sin.” But God is doing much more. He is making something new out of the old sinful nature. He is, in Christ, making new creatures.“No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers. . . . No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor’s stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling!”In this book the reader will gain an insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs a biblical approach to counseling. And the connection between solid theology and practical application will become compelling. This book is one-of-a-kind.

READING: A client raises spiritual questions. Can a Christian therapist working in a government agency talk with a client about faith? A young couple with two children asks a Christian counselor to help them negotiate an end to their marriage. What responsibility does the counselor have to try to repair the relationship? A youth group member confidentially reveals to the pastor that he is taking drugs. Should the pastor tell the boy's parents? A counselor who teaches a college course has a client show up for class. What should she do? These are just a few of the complex dilemmas that therapists, counselors and pastors face nearly every day. Handling these situations appropriately is critical for both the client's progress and the professional's personal credibility and protection from liability. State and federal codes, professional association statements and denominational guidelines have been drawn up to address ethical issues like competence, confidentiality, multiple relationships, public statements, third parties and documentation. In this book you'll find them all compiled and interpreted in light of Christian faith and practice. Written by qualified professional counselors and respected academic instructors, this book is an indispensable resource for understanding and applying ethics in Christian counseling today.

The Publisher InterVarsity Press
Release Date2010-02-28

Pages 174
ISBN 0830879048
Language English, Spanish, And French

READING: Sin. Grace. Christian Counseling. How do these fit together? In Christian theology sin and grace are intrinsically interconnected. Teacher and counselor Mark McMinn believes that Christian counseling, then, must also take account of both human sin and God's grace. For both sin and grace are distorted whenever one is emphasized without the other. McMinn, noting his own tendencies and the temptation to stereotype different Christian approaches to counseling along this theological divide, aims to help all those preparing for or currently serving in the helping professions. Expounding the proper relationship of sin and grace, McMinn shows how the full truth of the Christian gospel works itself out in the functional, structural and relational domains of an integrative model of psychotherapy.

READING: My name is Dr. Pearlie Braswell-Tripp, Ph.D. I do not claim to be an expert in religion, psychology, or counseling, but experience has taught me a lot about all three. 2 Timothy, 2:15 says: “study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman that needeth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of truth.” I was born in 1943 in Rocky Mount, North Carolina into a Christian family. My family was attending the Rock of Ages Holiness Church. My mother, Sister Mary Jones-Braswell played the guitar; my sister, Christine Braswell played the piano and the rest of the family sang. There were seven of us girls. My sisters; Frances, Christine, Doretha, Verna, Margaree and Mary Lee were older. We were known as the Braswell sisters. My father was Lee Braswell, the most handsome man in town. I will never forget the great times we had in Rocky Mount, nor will I forget the great Rock of Ages Holiness Church. Our church was two blocks away from our home. That meant we had no real reason not to go. Many of my other relatives attended Rock of Ages also. My mother’s parents attended and so did her brother and his family. Those were what we now call “The good ole days.” I really loved those days. We traveled around singing the gospel until we left home for New York City in 1961. We were rooted and grounded in religion.
