Master Christian counseling with Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction.
Theology has laryngitis in Christian counseling, pastoral discipleship, and lay spiritual friendship. God’s truth has lost its voice as post-modern ministry has relegated theology to the sidelines.
For a quarter-century, Dr. Kellemen has probed what God’s Word and Church history say about the personal ministry of the Word--counseling, pastoral care, spiritual friendship, personal discipleship, soul care, and spiritual direction.
Soul Physicians addresses the questions: "What truth do we need to know to counsel and disciple effectively?" "How are we to apply those truths in counseling and discipleship?"
It answers these questions by exploring:
*Creation/People: How God originally designed the soul.
*Fall/Problems: How sin depraved God’s original design.
*Redemption/Solutions: How salvation restores God’s original design.
Soul Physicians applies the answers to these questions to the relational issues people face. It teaches how to change lives with God’s changeless truth.
Soul Physicians provides a sanctification model that is not content with changing circumstances or simply relieving symptoms. Instead, it teaches how to use God's Word in personal ministry to help people to commune with Christ and conform to Christ so that God is exalted as they love Him and others.
Soul Physicians fills the glaring void for a theology of counseling and discipleship recognized by diverse pastors and Christian counselors such as John McArthur, John Piper, R. C. Sproul, Archibald Hart, Larry Crabb, and Jay Adams.
Written from a pastor’s heart, a theologian’s mindset, a counselor’s sensitivity, and a professor’s classroom experience, Soul Physicians carefully explains the relationship between truth and practice by addressing ten core biblical categories.
Soul Physicians develops each topic directly from Scripture, integrates them with historical theology and practice, and illustrates them with relevant examples. Each chapter contains two built-in study guides for individual or group use, one focusing on personal implications, the other on professional applications.From the Author:
