More About Larry Crabb & Lawrence J. 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
Reviews - What do customers think about Understanding Who You Are: What Your Relationships Tell You About Yourself?
Wasn't as good as I'd hoped. Jul 3, 2007
I suppose I shouldn't be complaining about 7 bucks, but I didn't think this book was all that the other reviews made it out to be. As others note, it was very short and in my opinion not very interesting or insightful. I hope his other books are better - I just got "Understanding People" so I'm hoping the reviews aren't a let-down for that one either.
Great Book Mar 25, 2007
Dr. Crabb does a great job in this book of setting a background for understanding who we are by what is going on inside us. He describes an informative structure for discussion and thought about why we do some of the things that we do. Excellent.
title not helpful Mar 8, 2007
The title of this book makes you expect too much about the actual book. Very little is included about this topic and the writing is not for the layperson. I was hoping for more of a simple understanding. Too many controversies in the text without clear solutions.
Short but Sweet Mar 1, 2007
As always, Larry Crabb's insight into relationships, the human psyche, and the link between the emotional and spiritual shines through in this short but sweet book. Mostly meant to whet your appetite for deeper study, this book provokes deeper contemplation of both one's relationships with humans and the Divine. A good read if you are traveling and don't want to lug around a larger book, or if you simply want a taste of what Larry Crabb is all about.
Why hasn't anyone recommended this book to me before? Mar 24, 2000
I've only finished the first chapter, so perhaps this review is premature, but I've been deeply struck so far. My only question is, why hasn't anyone recommended this book to me before? Or, why haven't I come across this perspective anywhere else? It represents an approach to solving one's problems that is fundamentally orthogonal to everything else out there, in both the church, and the world. So far, I would recommend it.
