This ground breaking book presents a system of biblical truth that brings together people, their problems and the living God. It is founded on three convictions. That Gods word should be the counselling authority of Christians helping people with broken lives. That counselling is a part of the essential ministry of the local church. That Gods people can and should be trained to counsel effectively. This voulme will be a valuable resource for churches and pastors as they minister to hurting people who are looking for love and hope.
