Pastor Dale: I have read this book, and I found it to be a very informative and revelational book on counseling that not only is powerfully written to instantly applicate it in your counseling sessions, but also "seemlessly" integrates in your own life! Even the the most novice of counselors will feel confidently competent to counsel. Definitely a visceral premise into the view of biblical counseling. A MUST READ!!
