Captain John Cheydleur has provided us with a valuable tool to improve our skills as counselors in his new book, Called to Counsel. I wish that I had been helped through the lessons in this book at an earlier point in my ministry and medical practice. The author has included useful resources rather than arcane references and has documented every point with down-to-earth, easy-to-relate-to examples from his own unusually broad clinical experience as a pastor, social worker, and counselor.
I am pleased to recommend this excellent skills training manual to every mature believer, with the prayer that it will be used widely to equip and encourage the non-specialist to become involved in the care of the bruised and confused who are all around, and to assist each Christian congregation to become a truly healing community.
-- Major Herbert C. Rader, MD, FACS - September-October, 1999 issue of Cross-Cultural Vision
Millions of people have an urgent need and a desperate desire to be listened to and understood. A thousand Laura Schlesingers would be helpful but not sufficient to sit down with each one for even one session. But what if thousands of local officers and soldiers could be equipped for the task? Captain John Cheydleur has provided us with a valuable tool to improve our skills as counselors in his new book, Called to Counsel
Because Larry Crabb has challenged the elders of the church to recover their counseling function as a way of enhancing the healing ministry of every congregation, we need guidance.
Because other recent works by experienced psychotherapists are challenging the effectiveness of psychotherapy and its value to Christians, we need alternatives.
I am pleased to recommend this excellent skills training manual to every mature believer, with the prayer that it will be used widely to equip and encourage the non-specialist to become involved in the care of the bruised and confused who are all around, and to assist each Christian congregation to become a truly healing community. --September-October, 1999 issue of Cross-Cultural Vision
