How does a person learn to counsel others with the truth of God's Word? Bob Kellemen believes that the best way to learn counseling is by doing it-by giving and receiving biblical counseling in the context of real, raw Christian community.
Gospel Conversations explores the four compass-points of biblical counseling:
- Sustaining: "It's Normal to Hurt."
- Healing: "It's Possible to Hope."
- Reconciling: "It's Horrible to Sin, but Wonderful to Be Forgiven."
- Guiding: "It's Supernatural to Mature."
These four compass points combine to equip readers to develop twenty-two ministry relational competencies-the "how to" of caring like Christ. This book serves as a practical training manual that can be used for lab and small group interaction.
Gospel Conversations is the second volume in The Equipping Biblical Counselors Series, a comprehensive relational training curriculum for the local church that provides a model for equipping God's people to change lives with Christ's changeless truth. This two-volume series weaves together comprehensive biblical insight with compassionate Christian engagement.
