Why Biblical Counseling?

An Appeal for Scriptural Sufficiency

ISBN: 978-1-7923-0319-7
By: Abercrombie, Ab


Why Biblical Counseling? examines the biblical and theological foundation for biblical counseling and makes an urgent appeal for scriptural integrity in the Christian Counseling. The book exposes the limitations and dangers of humanism and psychological ideology and challenges believers to embrace the biblical mandate to restore the fallen (Gal 6:1-2) and evangelize the lost (Matt 28:19-20).
