Overview

Ian Jones offers over two decades of Christian counseling knowledge as he leads you in examining human nature, particularly in its modern and postmodern forms, and as he demonstrates how this view is different from a biblical understanding. Learn what Scripture says about human nature, and explore the biblical psychologies—Scriptural views of human nature and the soul. Explore the history of caregiving and develop counseling skills needed to become an effective minister. In addition, apply models of pastoral care and counseling while reviewing counseling issues that you are likely to face in your church or any counseling ministry you may have. These issues include anxiety, depression, and suicide.
