Book Summary of Gospel-Centered Counseling by Robert W. Kelleman


When describing the church, the New Testament is wrought with “one another’s”, clearly highlighting that the life of the church is not to be lived in isolation. The interdependence of the church is perhaps most clear in the need for individual Christians to assist others in applying the Bible to their lives. This is the goal of biblical counseling, and it is to this end that Gospel-Centered Counseling was written. 

The act of biblical counseling can seem overwhelming — many Christians do not feel equipped to address the myriad problems that individuals may face as they live the Christian life. Yet, in truth, the Bible provides us with all we need to live a godly life, and the church is God’s chosen instrument to apply the teachings of the Scriptures to the life of individual Christians. It is by understanding the Bible, having a grasp of theology, that we may become equipped to care for others in their times of need. By highlighting the eight ultimate questions that every person asks, Gospel-Centered Counseling provides a foundation for biblical counselors to begin helping those in need.
