Overview

More than twenty-five years as a graduate educator and active counselor have taught author Ian Jones the importance of knowing the basic components and understanding the direction and purpose of competent counseling. But he also believes what matters most for any counseling practice is a solid biblical foundation.

In The Counsel of Heaven on Earth, Jones explains the essential features of biblical Christian counseling. Instead of engaging in formal theory building or systematic counseling strategies, he clearly shows how the Bible, from Genesis to Revelation, provides counselors with the blueprint for developing an effective counseling ministry.
