Book Review: The Pastor and Counseling by Pierre and Reju
Posted by ~Ang at 7:51 PM
Confession: I am not a pastor. I was simply curious about this book because I am passionate about the need for pastors to understand the basics of biblical counseling.
This book hit all the basics that it could in its short format. It is very easy to read and very practical in its application. I spent two years earning my biblical counseling certificate from CCEF (Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation) and I think this book hits all the highlights of my education well.
It is not going to cover everything obviously but it is a great resource book when a pastor is unsure about counseling his people.
I highly recommend this book for all pastors. It guides you through the initial meeting and beyond. There are extra helpful resources in the appendix, including an information gathering intake form.
This is a good book. Even if you are in the field of helping people but not a pastor, this would be helpful for you to understand the basics of biblical Christian counseling.
I received a copy of this book at no charge from the publisher for the purpose of an honest review.
