Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Practice of Nouthetic Counseling  Mar 23, 2007
Back in the day when many Christians were practicing counseling with a Sunday School knowledge of Scripture and a Master's level knowledge of secular theory, Jay Adams burst on the scene exhorting believers to believe in the sufficiency of Scripture. Though not every Christian counselor would accede that Nouthetic counseling embraces the totality of Christian counseling, and not every writer would write with the same acerbic spirit, at least Adams was courageous enough and biblical enough to extrapolate from Scripture one aspect of the practice of biblical spiritual direction.

Written as a companion and sequel to Competent to Counsel, Adams outlines in detail how to practice the soul physician's art of confronting sin out of concern for change. He develops the approach of Nouthetic counseling introduced in the earlier volume and applies it to a wide range of issues, topics, and techniques in counseling: Who is qualified to be a counselor? How can counselees change? How does the Holy Spirit work? What role does hope play? What is the function of language? How do we ask the right questions?

One might wish for a focus on comforting the suffering out of compassion for hope and healing, however early prophetic voices like Adams often overly tilt the pendulum in one direction. It is up to their heirs to emphasize neglected areas in an irenic spirit.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," and "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
Must Have Book for Christian Counselors  Mar 13, 2007
More than any other book, this book provides "how to" guidance with deep Scriptural insight for the Christian Counselor. Step by step The Christian Counselor's Manual provides sound Biblical instruction for counseling Christians including forms, helpful tables, do's and don'ts, and suggested "homework." The author also discusses specific counseling issues that are commonly encountered including, but not limited to, anger, envy, depression, schizophrenia, sex, marriage, fear, and addiction. The Scriptural basis for every aspect of counseling is clearly discussed. If you are a Christian Counselor and can buy only one book,this is the book to buy.
You have to decide what you want - Scripture or worldly psychology  Sep 24, 2006
Adams decided for Scripture and nothing but Scripture. In today's Christianity who only wants to "feel good" this of course is an offense because Scripture doesn't focus on man feeling good but God's glory. Most of what is called "Biblical counseling" today is just called 'biblical' but really is an antibiblical concept of people like my countryman Freud, Skinner, Rogers etc. in "Christian clothing". None of their presuppositions is Christian. Jay Adams is THE authority when it comes to Biblical Counseling. He doesn't just call it 'Biblical' and then again uses Freudian, Rogerian or other psychology - no, Adams solely uses Scripture, which is sufficient for instruction in righteousness. Adams' main strength is that he is exegetical and therefore very well balanced.

Adams, a first class theologian faced the battle and shows us in this and his other works that the Bible IS sufficient "for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work (2 Tim 3:16-17).

I apply these biblical methods in pastoral counseling and guess what - it works. Glory be to God!!

Adams, sells great but outdated  Aug 12, 2006
Jay Adams in this book does well in battling the psychological teaching of Karl Rogers. However, he does a great disservice to those who have mental illness. As Steve Bloem points out in his book "Broken Minds Help for the Healing When You feel Like your Losing It" (Steve and Robyn Bloem-Kregel Publications).Bloem shows that Adams was greatly affected by renegade psychiatrist Thomas Szaz, who did not believe that mental illness was a result of ('bad brain chemistry') Adams planted the seed of error and laid a foundation for the ludicrous teachings of Nouthetic Counseling Movement, which continue to this day.(See Broken Minds, chapter 16, Christian Counseling a treatment Smorgasboard and footnotes on p. 289)
The Sufficiency of the Scriptures  Apr 28, 2006
Adams always is a delight to read. While Adams is not perfect he is passionate about the right things and hits the nail on the head on almost every issue. He blazed the trail for modern noutetic counseling. Those who have expressed problems with this book do not have the high view of Scripture that Adams holds and do not understand the depravity of man as the Bible teaches. They also do not understand how the presuppostions of psychology are anti-Christian and they do not bring glory to God. This is a very practical book that is a good read for all Christians who seek to restore their bretheren (Gal. 6)
