More About Jay Edward Adams
For over 40 years Dr. Jay Adams has been a modern day prophet calling God's people back from their dalliance with unbiblical psychological theory to a renewed confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit and the sufficiency of God's Word to equip the man of God to help his people with problems of living and relationship. Happily, many have heeded his call and over the years a movement, both deep and wide, has developed, consisting of pastors and other Christian workers who have been trained in and are practicing the kind of truly biblical counseling God intended for His people to receive.
Jay Edward Adams was born in Baltimore on January 30, 1929 and was born again about 15 years later in response to the reading of a New Testament that was given to him by a friend. He received his formal training at Reformed Episcopal Seminary (B.D.), Johns Hopkins University (A.B.), Pittsburgh-Xenia Seminary, Temple University School of Theology (M.ST.), and the University of Missouri (Ph.D.). He pastored churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, served as a denominational official, a professor at Westminster Theological Seminary, the director of the Doctoral program at Westminster Theological Seminary in California, and then as a church planting pastor in South Carolina. He was also the the founder of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation in Philadelphia, the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, and Timeless Texts which now publishes his books.
In 1999 Dr. Adams retired from the pastorate of the church he had planted in South Carolina and has devoted his time to writing and lecturing. In the fall of 2001 the Redeemer Biblical Counseling Training Institute (RBCTI) was established at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Moore, SC to provide a vehicle by which Dr. Adams could continue teaching.
When word got out that Dr. Adams was lecturing regularly again we began to get requests for tapes and inquiries about studying by extension. While many of the lectures Dr. Adams has given over the years are available from a variety of sources we have concluded that it would be a blessing to God's people if we could make a quality, structured, video taped course of study available for those who desire to be better equipped to minister the Word of God. Thus INS was born.
While health problems have restricted Dr. Adams' travel schedule, requiring him to slow down physically, he is still anxious to have an ongoing ministry, especially to pastors. He continues to write and though he has to sit behind a desk when he teaches, his lectures are still energetic, lively, and challenging. Those who have been enrolled at RBCTI this past year have given the Institute high marks and report it has been a great blessing in their lives and ministries.
Jay Edward Adams was born in 1929.

Reviews - What do customers think about Is All Truth God's Truth? (Ministry Monographs for Modern Times)?
Worth buying May 3, 2008
The title of this book was what convinced me to buy it, as my special interest is in the study of the nature of Truth. The phrase "All truth is God's truth" is used so often, it betrays a total lack of knowledge of the nature of truth, and assumes that human beings can discover truth, and this truth is the equivalent of the Special revelation that is in the Bible, a fatal error. A small book of 56 pages, the author deals with the very important issue that the Bible should be the Christian's sole authority in ALL subjects. Although I believe that the author does not have a valid definition of the word Truth, which can be found at [...] , the book addresses a very important issue. The main thesis can be applied across the board in all areas of knowledge, including science, economics, and Counseling, the latter of which seems to be the author's main interest and area of expertise. Since the author does not have a valid definition of Truth in mind, he actually falls into several self-contradictions. He is unable to deal with the "discoveries" of science, although he comes very close to the correct notion that nothing in science is or can be true. I would need to quote some lines from the book to do justice to this review, but it is still a worthwhile book to add to your library. The writer is an orthodox Christian and comes close to realizing that Truth is Jesus Christ, and nothing else.
Great Biblical Truth...great resource for Biblical Counselors Aug 5, 2007
This is a great book that helps to support Biblical counseling as opposed to Christian counseling. It also discusses, in great detail, the controversial arguments surrounding the validity of the very title of the book. Only 54pages but tons of information. Don't let the length deter you one way or the other. It is worth every penny and minute of your time to read
