Peerless Counseling Equipping Manual Aug 29, 2007
Spiritual Friends is unlike any training manual currently available for training lay spiritual friends, pastoral biblical counselors, and professional Christian counselors. Other manuals claim to be biblically-based, but are predominantly secular in focus and content. Still other manuals talk about biblical principles, but do not develop a true equipping strategy.
Spiritual Friends successfully and skillfully blends both adherence to biblical truth and relevance in practical training. It also introduces the readers to a long-forgotten yet long-practiced paradigm called sustaining, healing, reconciling, and guiding. Again, a few other authors talk about these four areas of soul care, but none that I know of actually have developed an approach to equipping counselors to become skillful in their practice.
If you can only buy one book on how to become a biblical counselor, buy this one. In fact, buy two of this one--one for you and one for a friend, and learn together how to master soul care and spiritual direction. I require it both in my church lay counseling training ministry and in my college course on biblical counseling.
