More Details

Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. In the Theology of Biblical Counseling course, Heath Lambert covers the history of the biblical counseling movement, the core convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling practices today.

For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling…and bad theology leads to bad counseling. Illustrated with true stories from the counseling room, the Theology of Biblical Counseling course shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today.

The Theology of Biblical Counseling course is useful for working biblical counselors, pastors who counsel, and students at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each lesson, doctrine comes to life in examples of real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.
