“This is a great book for biblical counselors who need to learn how to see their own sin ‘with new eyes’ and in turn help others see theirs… the x ray questions on chapter 7 is worth the price of the book alone… these are fabulous questions to get to the root of what is really going on and they are great questions as they are and easily modifiable if you need or want to customize them (which i highly recommend).. great book.”

“Throw away every secular counseling book you own, pick up the Bible and open this book — NOW you are studying true counseling! If you really want to learn how to help someone, it starts with your Bible and this book. Counseling starts with God and self. Period. As David said to the Lord, “Against You alone, Lord, have I sinned.”

This book is excellent!”

“As a new Biblical counselor I found this book one of the most spiritually and mentally stimulating I have ever read. I will look forward to more.”

Seeing With New Eyes


Seeing with New Eyes: Counseling and the Human Condition Through the Lens of Scripture

by David Powlison

Seeing with New Eyes is a collection of essays written by David Powlison.

Through Bible exposition, topical essay, editorial and sermon, David explores two main topics:

  • Scripture: In His Word, God speaks into real life to help us understand him and his intentions. How do we embrace Scripture to hear Him at that level?
  • People: How can this deeper understanding of Scripture help us understand – and help – people (including ourselves) amid the problems of daily life?

Seeing with New Eyes also shows one how to look at many common struggles through the lens of Scripture, including:

  • Worry
  • Victimization
  • “Love languages”
  • The new biomedical approach to personal struggles

This book will help readers to listen, look, and think wisely, with renewed hope, following the patterns of God’s gaze.
