Overview

For nearly 30 years, the Journal of Biblical Counseling (previously the Journal of Pastoral Practice) of CCEF (the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation) has provided a forum for biblical counseling’s development and application. The journal’s mission is to develop clear thinking and effective practice in biblical counseling through articles that faithfully bring the God of truth, mercy, and power to the issues faced by ministries of counseling and discipleship.

Senior Editor David Powlison writes, “CCEF works and prays to restore Christ to counseling—and to restore counseling to the church. The Journal of Biblical Counseling serves this mission as a publishing ministry of CCEF. We believe that true, life-explaining insight into people necessarily involves thinking Christianly. Loving, lasting help necessarily involves practicing ‘counseling’ as one aspect of consciously Christian ministry. The deeper you gaze into what actually goes wrong with people—the weight of our sins and sorrows—the more clearly you see that Jesus Christ is essential to making it right.”

This Journal of Biblical Counseling collection (84 issues) includes over 30 years of past articles (1977–2007). It contains the 36 issues of the Journal of Pastoral Practice as well as 48 issues of the Journal of Biblical Counseling (through 2007). The 84 back issues include nearly 1,000 articles, book reviews, sermons, interviews, and editorials.

Whether you’re a pastor, counselor, counselee, or friend, Logos makes these articles more accessible than ever. In the Logos edition, you can search the entire collection by subject or topic to find what you’re looking for. When you search these articles by Scripture passage, you’ll find every single mention of the verse you’re reading—hours of research with one click. Whether you’re a ministry leader or counselor looking for a comprehensive set of practical tools, or you’re experiencing some of the issues covered in these journals, the Journal of Biblical Counseling (84 issues) can help.
