The Gospel for Disordered Lives reminds readers that the gospel—the heartbeat of the Bible—brings life changing hope and power to real people with real problems. The authors believe God in his Word speaks more deeply and more powerfully than the mental health world. This volume provides an introductory guide to the theory and practice of Christ-centered biblical counseling. Intended to serve as a foundational textbook for students in Christian colleges, universities, seminaries, and graduate schools, the book also provides a useful overview that working counselors can reference in their ministry contexts. Additionally, it can serve pastors and current counseling practitioners as a helpful refresher and a resource for common counseling problems.
