Quick Scripture Reference for Counseling
Over 500,000 copies sold. An immensely valuable resource.
This valuable guide has been repeatedly published since 1988 due to its inestimable value. While its primary intention was to help counselors and pastors, over the years, many have also found it indispensable in helping them meet their personal needs and the needs of their family.
This revised and expanded edition is specially designed to help people use the Scriptures more effectively in their lives. Scripture quotations are from the ESV (English Standard Version). Scripture passages on each of the practical topics are thoughtfully arranged in a numbered list so that users can see their significance at a glance. Users have all the pertinent Bible passages at their fingertips when they need them most.
It is essential for the biblical counselor to the thoroughly equipped with the Scriptures, prepared for every good work. The better equipped you are, the more effective you will be in helping others. Friends and family who knew John Kruis (he passed away in 2010) recall that he would often say at the beginning a counseling session, “I have good news for you – there is hope!”, as he turned them to the Word. And he knew that hope came not from what he could do or say, but from the power found in God’s Word.
