“The authors define the relevance of Scripture to counseling, and contrast the worldly wisdom available to the time-proven value of God-breathed Counsel from His Word. Practical application for specific needs conclude the volume.”

“This book was used as a text book by our recently completed biblical counseling class at [OV]Church in Norfolk, VA. It is a great asset in preparing to counsel those in need. I would highly recommend this book to all who have a desire to institute biblical counseling into the ministry of their church.”

“Awesome book on the sufficiency of scripture in counseling.”

Scripture and Counseling


Scripture And Counseling: God’s Word for Life in a Broken World

by Robert W. Kellemen, Jeff Forrey

Today we face a tremendous weakening of confidence in the Bible.

We need to regain our confidence in God’s Word as sufficient to address the real life issues we face today.

We need to understand how the Bible equips us to grow in counseling competence as we use it to tackle the complex issues of life.

Scripture and Counseling is divided into two sections (nine chapters each):

  • Part One helps readers to develop a robust biblical view of Scripture’s sufficiency for “life and godliness” leading to increased confidence in God’s Word.
  • Part Two assists readers in learning how to use Scripture in the counseling process. This section demonstrates how a firm grasp of the sufficiency of Scripture leads to increased competence in personally ministering God’s Word to others.

Scripture and Counseling brings you the wisdom of twenty ministry leaders who write so you can have confidence that God’s Word is sufficient, necessary, and relevant to equip God’s people to address the complex issues of life in a broken world.

It blends theological wisdom with practical expertise, accessible to pastors, church leaders, counseling practitioners, and students; equipping them to minister the truth and power of God’s word in the context of biblical counseling, soul care, spiritual direction, pastoral care, and small group facilitation.
