Pastors, Christian workers, and laymen who found Competent to Counsel so helpful and stimulating will welcome this sequel that was written specifically for the large number of persons who recognize and appreciate the thoroughly scriptural basis of nouthetic counseling and want to learn more about it. Filled with counseling principles and techniques that are squarely based on the Bible, The Christian Counselor's Manual is a "how-to" handbook that will make Christian counseling even more effective. It applies biblical principles and methods to the difficult problems commonly met in the counseling room as well as to the everyday concerns of the counselees. The Christian Counselor's Manual takes the reader beyond the approaches recommended in Competent to Counsel. It includes many answers to questions raised in seminars conducted by the author or in letters to him. The format is that of a ready reference guide, filled with practical suggestions. A special quick-reference section adds to its utility. The Christian Counselor's Manual duplicates little that is found in Competent to Counsel -- except the same evident desire of the author to be faithful to the Word of God.
