The Apostle Paul had a passion to help Christians grow spiritually and apply biblical principles to the everyday challenges they encountered and that we face today. In that sense, Paul taught the same lessons that biblical counselors teach today. We are all called to counsel and disciple one another and the practical lessons in this book will be referred to over and over again. Chapters include Paul on disciple-making, missions, pharmaceuticals, renewing the mind, women in ministry, Paul’s model of change, Paul’s lessons on temptation, and leaving the past behind. 15 chapters in all in a surprisingly succinct book!
“Paul the Counselor” is meant as an encouraging teaching for biblical counseling ministries all over the world. We hope you’ll be touched by its message, and learn more about Paul as you study God’s Word deeper in the days ahead.
