Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Best Pastoral Counseling book  Feb 20, 2007
This is the best bare bones approach to pastoral counseling on the market. It is straight forward and easy to understand. It is practical and applicable. I must read for all pastors or ministers who even do the tiniest bit of counseling
