Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Counselor's Casebook?
Excellent Study Guide for use with Christian Counselor's Manual Mar 13, 2007
The Christian Counselor's Casebook provides a diverse and challenging set of case studies to prepare the serious Christian Counselor with practice in advising individuals, couples, and families. However, this book should not be used alone. It can only be understood in coordination with The Christian Counselor's Manual (also by Jay Adams).
Helpful resource, if used as intended Aug 10, 2005
If you nibble on this book with some friends, a case at a time, it can help you hone your skills as a counselor. Adams goal is to teach readers to be more perceptive and accurate in identifying common problems. In addition, Adams tries to give practice in applying the Scriptures to these problems wisely. How do you help someone salvage a marriage, or conquer depression, or learn to be a good friend? Adams provides plenty of practice is a variety of scenarios. He is intentionally ambiguous and open-ended (reviewers really must read introductions before writing reviews!) because counselling so often starts that way.
The book is helpful because it gives the reader practice and opportunities to grow in wisdom before they rush out and "practice" on someone with a pulse. Used rightly, it can be most helpful. But by no means read it straight through. It is to be reflected on and discussed--with a Bible and a pen at the ready. This takes longer, to be sure. But that's the point. Wisdom is costly.
Very hard to read, even for the intelligent May 16, 2001
Unfortunately, Adams is not very clear on many of his statements. It makes for long, boring reading - certainly not an encouragement when you have to read it for class!
