“While touching on many aspects of counselling, this book . . . is specifically designed to elucidate the process of counselling. I have often mentioned and illustrated that process, but not in the focused and systemic way that the four-step biblical process is set forth here. . . . This book presents a fresh perspective not only on how to counsel, but also on what measures to take at what stages of counselling.”—Jay Adams, from the preface Change is the essential goal of the counselling process. And, in the author’s words, “substantial change requires the alteration of the heart.” How can a Christian counsellor facilitate such change? The answer, of course, may be found in Scripture, specifically in 2 Timothy 3:14–17. Jay Adams is a well-known counsellor who bases his whole approach on Scripture. This book provides an unparalleled opportunity to see how he discovers and applies biblical principles as well as the way in which Scripture functions as the basis for his counselling approach. This book answers two questions: “How does a counsellor help people change?” and, “How does Scripture provide the source of a counsellor’s method?” How to Help People Change has much to say about the ongoing discussion of the relationship between theology and psychology in the enterprise of Christian counselling.
