Review:

Biblical Counseling Ministries, Inc. has a vibrant ministry in Central Wisconsin. God has used this solid biblical counseling ministry and model as the site for change toward sanctification in the lives of many Christians. Over the years it has been a privilege to observe the God-honoring ministries of Sue Nicewander and the Pastors of the BCM churches. Pastors and qualified biblical counselors: read this book for useful information toward the development of a biblical counseling ministry that will serve your people and also Christians from like-minded area churches. --Wayne Johnston, NANC Fellow, Director of Training Center Certification, National Association of Nouthetic Counselors

This book is much needed. BCM has proven through hard work and careful development that their model works. I trust that this book can soon be on the shelves of many small churches all over the country. It definitely will be a required text for the Foundations Course here at the Shepherds Seminary and at Central Baptist Theological Seminary. --Dr. Thomas Zempel, NANC Fellow, Pastor of Care Ministries, Colonial Baptist Church, Cary, NC; Adjunct Professor of Biblical Counseling, Central Baptist Theological Seminary

Building a Church Counseling Ministry Without Killing the Pastor presents a wonderful vision for cooperation by local churches of like mind in helping people through the Word of God. The author first gives an overview of biblical counseling and then explains practically how a biblical counseling ministry can be developed. While her emphasis is upon local churches in a region cooperative in such a ministry, there is much in this book which would benefit every kind of biblical counseling ministry whether a counseling center, or a church staff based counseling ministry. The author is very practical and incredibly thorough. She thinks of everything! If you are involved in a biblical counseling ministry or if you are considering starting one, you will greatly benefit from this book. --Dr. Jim Newheiser, NANC Fellow, Pastor and Director of the Institute for Biblical Counseling and Discipleship, Escondido, California
