Reviews - What do customers think about Biblical Basis Of Christian Counseling For People?
Excellent Buy May 6, 2007
This was an excellent buy and the customers service person I called was quite warm and accomodating.
Impractical, preachy and limited Aug 4, 2006
I found this book of relatively little value. I suppose if you spend sessions processing demons, angels and satan, then it will be something you want to get your hands on. It read like a theological diatribe instead of a Christian counseling book and I felt Collins was more interested explaining his theological positions than writing a book on counseling that allows for counselors to apply Christian therapy in a realisic manner. Also, I experienced it as extremely defensive as Collins spent a great deal of energy pointing out what is wrong with other religions and beliefs instead of sticking to the title of the book. If you are a rigid, fundamentalist, convervative Christian counselor, and your clients are all the same, this may be for you. If you are anything but, or if your clients differ, I would skip right over it. I suggest instead Psychology, Theology & Spirituality in Christian Counseling by Mark, R. McMinn, Ph.D. It is much more practical, useful and realistic and you can pull from it and apply it to your counseling with a wide range of Christian clients in all their diversity.
