"What Is Biblical Counseling? In principle, Christians believe that knowing Jesus Christ is the original and abiding 'cure of the soul.' But in practice, the church's provision of personalized care and counsel has often been unthoughtful and unskillful. During the past 150 years, many other practitioners and theorists have filled the gap. Psychiatry and psychotherapy (transliterations of two Greek words for 'cure of the soul' claim to offer the deep truth that explains a human being, and the final word on how we can be cured from the troubles that beset us. Secularized explanations and cures call for no recourse to the Bible or Jesus. Beginning in the late 1960s, a biblical counseling movement sought to reclaim counseling for the church. It aimed to provide a coherently Christian alternative to mainstream psychiatry and psychotherapy. The Biblical Counseling Movement: History and Context is an informative and thought-provoking account of that movement. How did it begin and develop? What were the defining ideas? Where were the tension points and struggles, both internally and with evangelical psychotherapists? David Powlison's historical account combines careful scholarship with a unique, eyewitness insight. This book is an invaluable resource for those who want to understand the biblical counseling movement. The core chapters were originally a Ph. D. dissertation in history of science and medicine (University of Pennsylvania). This new edition adds a lengthy appendix, containing articles by Dr. Powlison. These extend and deepen the history, giving a fine-grained analysis of developments within the biblical counseling movement and in its relationship to evangelical psychotherapists. The author also freely expresses his point of view and personal convictions regarding the history he has carefully described"--Publisher description.… (altro)

I am convinced about you, my brothers, that you are competent to counsel one another. -- Paul to the Roman church, c. AD 60
Nearly all the wisdom we possess, that is to say, true and sound wisdom, consists of two parts: the knowledge of God and of ourselves. . . [A] vertiable world of miseries is to be ound in humankind. . . Accordingly, the knowledge of ourselves not only arouses us to seek God, but also, as it were, leads us by the hand to find him.

This book is dedicated to the memory of PETER ANDREWS POWLISON (1922 - 1987). He would have found great pleasure in this day.

PREFACE: It delights me that this book has been read by so many readers and has been so well received. It is, after all, a "dissertation."

CHAPTER 1: In 1970 Jay Adams, a forty-one-year-old Presbyterian pastor and seminary professor, published an inflammatory book about counseling.
