About two years ago (can’t believe it has been two years), I reviewed Heath Lambert Finally Free (see here). It was a worthwhile read. Now Mr. Lambert has a new book on biblical counseling: A Theology of Biblical Counseling: The Doctrinal Foundations of Counseling Ministry.
A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that unpacks the core theological convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.
If Mr. Lambert’s A Theology of Biblical Counseling is as gospel-focused at his Finally Free, then it should be worth the purchase.
