More About Larry Crabb
Lawrence J. Crabb, Jr. (better known as Dr. Larry Crabb) is a psychologist, author, Bible teacher and seminar speaker. Dr. Crabb has written many best-selling books and is the founder and director of New Way Ministries. He serves as a Spiritual Director for the American Association of Christian Counselors and since 1996 has been the Distinguished Scholar-in-Residence of Colorado Christian University.
Crabb was born in Evanston, Illinois, in 1944 and was a reluctant student of psychology until he began studying abnormal psychology and personality theory. During graduate school he experienced a period of deep scepticism before being guided back to the faith by Francis Schaeffer and CS Lewis. His renewed spiritual passion convinced him that Christianity had a more fundamental role to play in clinical psychology.
Crabb's first books were Basic Principles of Biblical Counseling (Zondervan, 1975) and Effective Biblical Counseling (Zondervan, 1977). He has since gone on to write over 40 further books; some of his more well-known ones include Inside Out, Finding God, Connecting and Men & Women: Enjoying the Difference.
He founded the Institute of Biblical Counseling in the early-1980s while on the faculty of Grace Theological Seminary (1982–1989). The institute has since been replaced with the School of Behavioral Sciences. The school was birthed out of his book Shattered Dreams (WaterBrook, 2001) describing Naomi's journey from the Book of Ruth. New Way Ministries (the "new way" from Romans 7:6), established in 2001, runs the schools/conferences.
Crabb was Adjunct Professor of Applied Theology at Regent College from 1998–1999, Chairman and Professor, Master of Arts in Biblical Counseling Program, Colorado Christian University, 1989–1996, Chairman and Professor, Graduate Department of Biblical Counseling, Grace Theological Seminary, 1982–1989 and in private practice for Clinical Psychology in Boca Raton, Florida, 1973-1982. He was also the lone psychologist at the Psychological Counseling Center, Florida Atlantic University - Assistant Professor, Psychology Department 1971-1973 and Assistant Professor, Psychology, University of Illinois Staff Psychologist, Student Counseling Center, University of Illinois, 1970-1971. He received Teacher of the Year Award in the Psychology Department in 1971.
Dr. Crabb and his wife of forty-six years, Rachael, live in the Denver, Colorado area. For additional information please visit www.newwayministries.org

2nd best book I ever read Dec 5, 2009
I wish I could explain why I love this book so much, get ready to understand the subtle ways you move about your life that limits your relationships with people, and more importantly, with Jesus. Must read!
Inside Out by Dr. Larry Crabb Sep 18, 2009
This is an excellent book. We are using it in our Sunday morning Kingdom Living Institute class. I would recommend it.
Understanding the change process Sep 12, 2009
Excellent fusion of biblical principals and "psychology." Dr. Crabb is the first person to tell the body of believers that they could minimize the need for professional counselors/psychologists if they were utilizing God's principals for the change process within the community setting. Another well written and insightful book about the need for true change and how it occurs not through behavioral adjustment but by the work of the Holy Spirit as God enables change from the Inside Out.
Cuts right to the heart of the matter! May 5, 2009
This is one of the best books I have ever read on looking at the core of why we behave the way we do. It was recommended to me by a friend nine years ago, and I still pick it up every now and then. I learned so much about the life I was creating by my desire to be loved, and never realized that only Jesus could change me from the inside out. Once my heart was filled with His love, then I could let Him go to work on me. Soon my outside behaviors changed, and my quality of life improved. Thank you, Dr. Crabb, for this great book! I know it will help others draw near to Christ for the healing they seek. Mary Singer Wick, author of "My Heart's Desire: A Journey Toward Finding Extravagant Love".
Tough Stuff Apr 23, 2009
This is one of the hardest books I've read, but one that God has used to turn the tough, dry soil of my soul. Don't take this book lightly. Blessings to you on your journey of finding the real source of living water.
