In Biblical Concepts for Christian Counseling, William Kirwan sounds a clarion call for a thorough integration of psychology and theology and demonstrates how biblical principles should be the cornerstone of any healthy Christian counseling ministry.
Praise for the Print Edition
Worthy reading for anyone who is seriously interested in relating psychology to Christian theology and who is deeply concerned to develop an approach to counseling congruent with Christian truth. The author has done his homework, integrating careful theological reflection with solid psychological theorizing and clinical experience. The result is a most significant contribution to the development of a truly Christian psychology.
—David G. Benner, Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Spirituality, Psychological Studies Institute
Dr. Kirwan draws from Scripture, clinical experience and psychological literature in his exposition of the counseling theory and practice which he has developed. In this easy-to-read volume Scriptures come alive, and relate as never before to our experiences as broken selves in a broken world. Moreover, Kirwan brings to light insights from contemporary psychology and from Christian thinkers…Biblical Concepts challenges many of our notions and attitudes, daring us to be more biblical in our preaching and counseling.
—John W. Sanderson, Professor Emeritus of Biblical Theology, Covenant Theological Seminary
