A Radical Proposal: Christ-Centered Ministry versus Problem-Centered Counseling

$ 11.00

This book reveals the origins and faults of problem-centered counseling, describes Christ-centered ministry and how it differs from problem-centered counseling, and encourages local congregations to minister as God has called them to without the influence of the psychological or biblical counseling movements.

The radical proposal is to discourage problem-centered counseling and to encourage Christ-centered ministry, to overthrow intimidation from the psychological and biblical counseling movements, and thereby to free believers in local congregations to minister to fellow believers without psychological or biblical counseling manuals, workshops, seminars, degrees, or certificates.

The purpose of this book is to reveal the origins and faults of problem-centered counseling, to describe Christ-centered ministry and how it differs from problem-centered counseling, and to encourage local congregations to minister as God has called them to do without the influence of the psychological or biblical counseling movements.
