Item Description...
Overview
Drawing on narrative biblical criticism and the psychology of narrative, the book suggests a model for pastoral counseling using Scripture to explore and release human possiblities. Detailed case studies are presented to depict the way the Bible can be used with counselees. Particular attention is given to pastoral counseling with individuals, marital couples, and families who bring to pastoral counseling a history of employing Scripture to bring order and meaning to their lives. Often, however, the biblical story seems to be secondary in their lives, and a more dominant and unhealthy story is primary. The method of using Scripture suggested in this book illuminates how the Bible story challenges and transforms unhealthy dominant stories that people bring to counseling.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Tantalizes but doesn't deliver  Jan 20, 2005
I bought this book becuase it appeared to follow the precepts and structure of Narrative therapy, with special attention given to the re-authoring and externalizing processes, areas that I see as important in the field of pastoral care. However, it has little to do with Narrative work, but rather seems to embrace traditional pastoral care practices mingled with standard material from other mental health disciplines, and I have thus come away feeling dissapointed. The verbatim material is also rather scant. I would still like to see a piece that genuinely integrates the Bible into the re-authoring process.
