How does one view Christian counseling as a calling? What is the role and task of the counselor from a theological perspective? How does one strip away the ambiguity that is too often inherent in the words "therapy" and "counseling" in a religious setting? Ray S. Anderson has written this book as a theologian with a keen interest in helping Christian counselors fulfill their task more effectively by enabling them to see that task more clearly. Too often, even counselors who achieve effective results are beset by what Anderson calls "an uneasy conscience"--the realization that for some reason "a little transactional analysis once a week works better than a month of Sundays in curing the souls of troubled parishioners." This book seeks to put that uneasiness and ambiguity to rest by helping counselors see their work as a means of grace, rooted in a model of personhood that is both theologically and psychologically sound for realizing the full potential of each person. Christians Who Counsel has three parts, involving building a foundation for Christian counseling, exploring the spiritual dynamics in counseling, and describing counseling in a distinctly Christian mode. Written without either theological or psychological jargon, this book is for all Christians who counsel, whether pastors, lay counselors, psychotherapists, or family therapists. With clarity of vision comes the power of a renewed commitment.
