DESCRIPTION:

Too often, even counselors who achieve effective results are beset by what Anderson calls "an uneasy conscience"--the realization that for some reason "a little transactional analysis once a week works better than a month of Sundays in curing the souls of troubled parishioners."This book seeks to put that uneasiness and ambiguity to rest by helping counselors see their work as a means of grace, rooted in a model of personhood that is both theologically and psychologically sound for realizing the full potential of each person.Christians Who Counsel has three parts, involving building a foundation for Christian counseling, exploring the spiritual dynamics in counseling, and describing counseling in a distinctly Christian mode. With clarity of vision comes the power of a renewed commitment.. Anderson has written this book as a theologian with a keen interest in helping Christian counselors fulfill their task more effectively by enabling them to see that task more clearly. How does one view Christian counseling as a calling? What is the role and task of the counselor from a theological perspective? How does one strip away the ambiguity that is too often inherent in the word
