Reviews - What do customers think about Competent To Counsel?

Introduction to Nouthetic Counseling  Mar 23, 2007
In the beginning there was spiritual friendship, soul care, and spiritual direction dispensed by soul physicians. The Serpent entered and enticed Christians to sell their souls for a mess of secular psychological pottage. Adams charged in exhorting the faithful to faithfully use the Word of God which made every believer competent to counsel.

In the ensuing generation (four decades), thousands of biblical counselors, Christian counselors, and biblical psychologists have continued to call back and equip the Church to fulfill Her calling to speak God's Truth in love. Thus, while Competent to Counsel is not the proverbial be-all and end-all of ancient spiritual care, it was a ground breaking, foundation quaking, theory shaking, and movement making book.

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."
 
The Classic Work on Christian Counseling  Mar 13, 2007
This is one of two books that every Christian Counselor must have. (The other book is The Christian Counselor's Manual by Jay Adams.) Competent to Counsel contrasts the various theories of Psychological/Psychiatrict Counseling with Christian Counseling. The conclusion is clear, Christians are more competent to counsel than psychologists and psychiatrists (if you do not believe me read the book). Moreover, the author then provides a Biblical Exposition of Counseling with practical tips and guidance on how to provide sound Biblical Counsel. If you are a pastor or Christian Counselor this book is a must read.
 
Competent to Counsel  Jan 15, 2007
An outstanding book for anyone that is in the business or even has an intrest in helping others through the art of biblical counseling.
 
God's Word is Sufficent  Apr 2, 2006
This book is incredibly relevant for Christians today. The church has been infultrated with worldly methods and systems of counseling that contradict the Word of God. Adams shows the need for Biblcial Counseling and how all Christians are called to this ministry in one form or another. This is a tremendous book on this subject and is a great starting place for one who wants to know more about what Christians Counseling should be.
 
Poor  Mar 22, 2006
It seems the author tries to sound smart using words and phrasing that go over the readers head. Other students in a class who were required to read this book said the same thing. Additionally, the author NEVER truly explains what nouthetic counseling really is (does not give a definition). Found the book to be extremely poor for the subject.
