AGAINST "BIBLICAL COUNSELING": FOR THE BIBLE is about the growing biblical counseling movement and urges Christians to return to biblically ordained ministries and mutual care in the Body of Christ. It is an analysis of what biblical counseling is, rather than what it pretends or even hopes to be. Its primary thrust is to call Christians back to the Bible and to biblically ordained ministries and mutual care in the Body of Christ. "For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ" (Ephesians 4:12).
Very good book, but be warned it will make you think. Pastors have been told that they are not capable of counseling, they need trained professionals to assist their flock. This book exposes that myth, God is the only trainer Pastors and lay Christians need to counsel and minister to other Christians.
