Publishers Description

A Theology of Christian Counseling connects biblical doctrine with practical living. Salvation, that central concern of Protestant theology, is often too narrowly defined. It is thought of as being saved from the consequences of sin. But God is doing much more. He is making something new out of the old sinful nature. He is, in Christ, making new creatures. No counseling system that is based on some other foundation can begin to offer what Christian counseling offers. . . . No matter what the problem is, no matter how greatly sin has abounded, the Christian counselor s stance is struck by the far-more-abounding nature of the grace of Jesus Christ in redemption. What a difference this makes in counseling In this book the reader will gain an insight into the rich theological framework that supports and directs a biblical approach to counseling. And the connection between solid theology and practical application will become compelling. This book is one-of-a-kind."

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A forceful, practical exposition of the primacy of the Scriptures in counseling.  Jan 12, 2007
This volume is indispensible for anyone who presumes to call himself a "Christian" counselor, because the Scriptures must be the bedrock authority for any such claim. Jay Adams begins by dispelling any misconceptions about the advisability of trying to syncretize biblical counseling with worldly methods and theories. He then continues to explore, in very practical terms, how the Scriptures relate to various aspects of counseling doctrine and practice. The format and structure resemble a systematic theology text. Given the breadth of the potential subject matter, this volume is not, and indeed cannot be, exhaustive in its coverage. However, there is sufficient treatment of most important areas of counseling practice and the critical importance on using the Scriptures to the exclusion of competing resources. My only negative comment is Adams' distracting writing style, with its excessive use of parentheticals and, to a lesser extent, footnotes. However, these do not detract from the substantive value of his commentary. Excellent book!
Refreshing  Nov 5, 2006
For anyone interested in Christian counseling presented and taught according to God's divine plan this is a great book for your study of Christian counseling. I had the honor of hearing Dr.Adam's speak at the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors this year(2006) in Indiana. His focus, his books, his views on Christian counseling are all biblically based on the inerrant Word of God and directed by the presence and person of the Holy Spirit who indwells him.
It's just the best!  Sep 24, 2006
Dr. 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. This book is almost a full systematic theology - it's just excellent!!
Building a Foundation  Feb 25, 2005
In, "A Theology of Christian Counseling: More Than Redemption," biblical counseling pioneer, Dr. Jay Adams, offers a solid theological foundation for Christian counseling. As he notes, many people have written theologies, many have written counseling manuals, but until his book, no one in the 20th century had attempted a focused theology of counseling.

Dr. Adams discusses the ten classic doctrines of the historic Christian tradition, providing an introduction to evangelical theology. He then relates each doctrine to the field of biblical counseling.

As his subtitle suggests ("More Than Redemption"), the Christian life does not end at redemption, but begins there. Thus, much of "A Theology of Christian Counseling" appropriately focuses upon sanctification (the doctrine of the Christian's growth in grace). Adams is at his best here as he dissects the process of putting off the old way (mortification or, as he calls it, "dehabituation") and putting on the new way (vivification or, as he calls it, "rehabituation").

In his introduction, Dr. Adams states that "A Theology of Christian Counseling" was meant only to be a first salvo. He asks that others come behind him and develop more in-depth theologies related specifically to biblical counseling. In this sense, Dr. Adams stated the one limitation of his own book--though an excellent start, its breadth of coverage leaves it lacking somewhat in depth of theology and in depth of methodological application. However, as an introduction to the field, there is none better.

Reviewer: Dr. Bob Kellemen, author of "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction" and "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."

Applying Biblical Truths to the Heart  Jul 12, 2004
In this book, Dr. Adams identifies Biblical truths that relate specifically to problems that are faced by many people that go for counseling. He discusses how these truths, since they come from God's perfect revelation, are to be followed instead of man's faulty reason. Dr. Adams writes from the perspective of Reformed theology. Though he summarizes teachings from that perspective, it would be best for the reader to be familiar with it before reading this book (and the author says as much).

As a layman with only personal curiosity in the topic, I didn't know what to expect. This is the first book I've read in the area of Christian counseling, and so don't have background knowledge in the field to guide me. However, I found a very readable, in-depth survey of how Biblical doctrine applies to the counseling situation. If I were to give this book a different title, it would be: "Applying Reformed Theology To Our Everyday Lives." I learned a great deal about how doctrines such as original sin, the Trinity, and sanctification work out practically, and even found guidance for some personal struggles I was going through at the time. (I would not recommend this book as an alternative to counseling.) I also learned about the meaning and process of counseling as a Christian.

The paperback is a nice, sturdy one, printed on good paper. There are some typos throughout the book, but the correct meaning is usually clear.

I recommend this book for those with a background in Reformed theology and are interested in learning more about counseling and/or how that system of theology works our practically in the situations of life.
