Basic Principles of Biblical Counseling

"The local church should and can successfully assume responsibility within its ranks for restoring troubled people to full, productive, creative lives." "If we are to hope for success in such immense and seriously neglected responsibility, pastors need to return to the biblical model not of ministering to their people but of equipping their people to minister to each other by using their spiritual gifts." "Congregations need to regain that wonderful sense of 'koinonia' fellowship and pro practice true community."

With compassion and urgency, this book makes a plea for parishioners to engage in "grappling soul to soul with troubled lives." It looks toward a method of counseling which neither overlooks sin nor is reduced to a simplistic model of confrontation and exhortation.
