More About Larry Crabb & Rob Lamont
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
Reviews - What do customers think about The Papa Prayer?
A must have, must read! Feb 19, 2006
Another book on prayer? No! A breakthrough book on prayer. James 5:16b says, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much." KJV. But what is effectual? What is fervent? What is righteous?
Crabb points out that the only one that can really teach us to pray is Jesus. And Jesus' prayers were always first and foremost about relationship. He was always concerned about His relationship to His Father. All to often our prayers are laundry lists of requests--though not always for ourselves.
Crabb uses the Lord's Prayer to give us Jesus model for coming effectively before the Father--and what an eye opener it is. No matter how many times you've looked at or recited the Lord's Prayer, you've never looked at it in the way Crabb describes--and this new perspective can radically alter your prayer life.
The PAPA Prayer is about how to be real with God (who knows everything about us and what we've thought, said, and done, and loves us any way--unconditionally!) and through prayer develop a deeper relationship with God--which is the first thing God wants for us.
Don't miss out on the blessing's of the PAPA Prayer one minute longer. The world, the church, our communities, and our families need each of us to be praying the PAPA Prayer.
Armchair Interviews says: Run, don't walk to your bookstore for your own copy of The PAPA Prayer.
