Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands
Instruments in the Redeemer's Hands: People in Need of Change Helping People in Need of Change (Resources for Changing Lives)
This has been the most important book I have read on Biblical Counseling. It explains how each one of us as a believer is competent to counsel each other using Scripture and prayer and the Holy Spirit. In fact, as we talk to each other, we actually are counseling each other. As we discuss our relationships with each other, as we seek other's advice on how to handle our children, we counsel each other. What are we using to give advice? The latest child raising book? The advice given from a trusted pastor? Even "very good" advice needs to be based on the Word of God. We can lead our brothers and sisters in Christ to the Lord to glean His wisdom on all of the problems that we face in this life. After all, the Bible says that it is sufficient for all of life and godliness...2 Timothy 3:16-17.
