|The Grace of Counselling|
This booklet has evolved out of a number of circumstances. Every so often I am asked to give a lecture on biblical counselling, a potted version of what I present in comprehensive, larger volumes. On the occasion of an annual New Creation Teaching Ministry School of Pastors (1992) I thought it would be helpful to put the single lecture into this present format.
In one sense the booklet is inadequate in that it does not say enough. In another sense it is valuable in that it at least introduces the subject of biblical counselling, and may whether the appetite of a reader to go further and order other of my writings on this theme. The use of the word 'grace' is because counselling outside of God's grace and love cannot be sufficiently comprehensive. It cannot be wholly biblical.
I trust, then, that the present booklet may be useful not only in the practice of its brief contents, but as an appetiser for further reading, and wider application of the whole matter of biblical counselling.
