A Theology of Biblical Counseling: The Doctrinal Foundations of Counseling Ministry

Since the beginning of the biblical counseling movement in 1970, biblical counselors have argued that counseling is a ministry of the Word, just like preaching or missions. As a ministry, counseling must be defined according to sound biblical theology rather than secular principles of psychology.

For over four decades, biblical theology has been at the core of the biblical counseling movement. Leaders in biblical counseling have emphasized a commitment to teaching doctrine in their counseling courses out of the conviction that good theology leads to good counseling and bad theology leads to bad counseling.

A Theology of Biblical Counseling is a landmark new book that unpacks the core theological convictions that underlie sound counseling, and practical wisdom for counseling today. Dr. Heath Lambert shows how biblical counseling is rooted in the Scriptures while illustrating the real challenges counselors face today through true stories from the counseling room. A substantive textbook written in accessible language, it is an ideal resource for use in training biblical counselors at colleges, seminaries, and training institutes. In each chapter, doctrine comes to life in real ministry to real people, dramatically demonstrating how theology intersects with the lives of actual counselees.

Heath Lambert is the Executive Director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors & Pastor at First Baptist Church Jacksonville. We first heard Heath tell his story at the 2014 CCEF National Conference. This is indeed one of the most moving and challenging stories of sin, forgiveness, and gospel grace. We wanted to highlight this, not merely so you could know the caliber of the man who has written this book, but because we think Heath’s testimony is worth your time. It will change you, scare you, and make you rejoice in the Christ who loves sinners.

Heath Lambert (PhD, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary) is the Executive Director of the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors and is the Associate Pastor at First Baptist Church Jacksonville, FL. He is also a visiting faculty member at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary.
