  • Do I Need Counseling

    $5.99

    Are your personal or relational problems overwhelming you, negatively impacting your daily life or relationships? While all of us face the common pressures of living in a broken world, sometimes those challenges become too much to handle alone, and they hinder us from effectively functioning the way God designed. It could be that your normal avenues of informal one-another care from your church seem insufficient, and you need a trained counselor to help you. These are all times when you could benefit from focused help.

    Counselor and pastor Robert D. Jones helps you evaluate what type of assistance you may need as you face a variety of challenges and guides you in better understanding what biblical counseling is and what key priorities biblical counselors pursue. He then guides you in where to look for biblical counseling and answers some common questions about the counseling process so that you can get the most benefit from it.

  • Biblical Counseling Process

    $15.99

    What makes counseling biblical? What does the biblical counseling process entail? What is the focus of each stage of the process? Lauren Whitman, an experienced CCEF counselor, addresses these questions and more in A Biblical Counseling Process, sharing a process from start to finish that will help guide counselors in reaching the hearts of their counselees and connecting them to Jesus, who brings hope and change.

    Although there is not a one-size-fits-all formula for biblical counseling, Whitman captures the scope of a counseling process and identifies two major tasks for the beginning, middle, and the end. Each of the chapters works together to explain, describe, support, and illustrate these tasks. The author also provides a case study that continues throughout the book, providing readers with an example of how to implement the process.

    As part of CCEF’s Helping the Helper series, A Biblical Counseling Process will equip counselors, pastors, and lay leaders to approach their counseling ministry intentionally so that their work faithfully points people to the Lord, considers who he is, his heart, and what he calls us to. Useful for new and seasoned counselors alike, this resource will equip helpers with a vision for what a progression of counseling looks like.

  • Church As A Culture Of Care

    $17.99

    We all know people in our world are struggling–eating disorders, addictions, depression, sexual issues, marital problems–the list goes on and on. Can the church help or is that an outdated concept that no longer fits modern problems? In The Church as a Culture of Care, biblical counselor Dale Johnson explains that the church is still the primary place where those who struggle can receive lasting hope and healing.

    Pastors and lay leaders in the church often feel inadequate to address certain needs and are unsure of how to help. This book is designed to help erase the stigma of “mental health issues” in the church and to present the church as the primary haven for answers to deep-seated human problems. Readers will learn that God has designed every function of the church to be an integral part of soul care. God has provided the church with the necessary resources for us to care well for one another. Prayer, the Word, the work of the Holy Spirit, and Christian community are God’s provisions to lead all of us to Christ–even those with the deepest struggles.

    Counselors, ministers, and lay leaders will be empowered to have confidence in God’s purpose for the church, the power of his Spirit, and the sufficiency of his Word for soul care.

  • Making Sense Of Forgiveness

    $15.99

    Cliches, glib answers, and quick solutions are shared all too often with those who are struggling to forgive. We know Jesus calls us to forgive, but it can be hard to know what that looks like in complicated, messy relationships. Pastor and counselor Brad Hambrick helps readers to understand that forgiveness is the start of a journey that doesn’t erase the past, but honestly confronts hurt and clears the way for a hope-filled discussion on how to move toward healing.

    Too often forgiveness is viewed as the culmination of a journey, but when someone says, “I forgive you,” they are not saying, “Things are all better now.” They are saying, “I have decided to relate to your offense towards me differently.” Hambrick helps readers make sense of forgiveness biblically and relationally by addressing a variety of common questions that arise when we have been hurt: Does forgiveness mean restoration of trust? Am I supposed to “forgive and forget”? What is the role of biblical wisdom and boundaries on the road to forgiveness?

    Making Sense of Forgiveness speaks to those who are struggling by acknowledging the seriousness of their pain, explaining the difference between forgiveness and reconciliation, and helping readers understand the relationship between forgiveness and emotional freedom. The author explores the characteristics of God’s forgiveness toward us and how that shapes our own forgiveness.

    Includes a foreword from lawyer, activist, and former gymnast Rachael Denhollander.

  • When Home Hurts

    $16.99

    A pastoral guide to dealing wisely with domestic abuse in the local church.

    This book is intended to equip pastors, church leaders and church members to respond with the heart of God to situations of domestic abuse that occur in their local church. Prioritising the safety of the victim at all times, Jeremy Pierre and Greg Wilson seek to help you be the kind of church leader, church member, friend, parent, sibling, or neighbor who responds wisely. We want the church to be a new normal for those grown accustomed to abuse. A home that doesn’t hurt those inside, but instead welcomes them into the tender care of the Lord.

    Split into three sections, When Home Hurts begins with an overview to provide a framework for understanding abuse and the people caught up in it, before moving on to advice on how to help in the short and long terms.

    This very practical, pastoral book acknowledges the reality and the horror of domestic abuse, but also the reality and power of God to heal. It will be a helpful guide to anyone who suspects abuse within their church family but is unsure how to help without making things worse.

    The five appendices at the end of the book offer helpful answers to difficult questions as well as additional resources.

  • Consider Your Counsel

    $15.99

    Biblical counseling is not an easy calling. How do you effectively communicate the gospel to hurting people? Theological training and learning from other counselors are both key to growing in the wisdom, love, and skill needed to apply Scripture to yourself and others. Preparation is key, but sometimes the most effective training comes after you’ve jumped into the ring-when a coach puts his arm around your shoulder and helps you take a look at what you’ve done well and where you can grow.

    In Consider Your Counsel, Bob Kellemen comes alongside counselors and shares where he and others have missed the mark. Drawing on more than three decades of counseling supervision experience, he unpacks ten of the most common missteps that he has noticed in his own counseling, as well as those he has mentored.

    From teaching before listening to targeting sin but not suffering, Kellemen helps counselors of all ages see where they may need to reassess their methods and continue to grow. Each chapter briefly discusses a typical counseling mistake, then delves into a discussion of alternative approaches and practical suggestions for maturing as biblical counselor. This uniquely helpful book will help readers do an honest assessment of their counseling and encourage them to grow as counselors and friends.

  • Peace After Combat

    $17.99

    It could be your neighbor, your coworker, your son, or the woman sitting next to you in church. When combat veterans return from war, they’re often confused. They struggle to reconnect with their families; the cheering crowds and smothering hugs make them want to jump out of their skin. Sometimes they even long to return to the hell of deployment.

    What they’ve experienced can radically change how they view themselves, others, and the world at large. They may have never seen so much hurt, suffering, death, and destruction. It leaves them asking “Where is God?”

    In Peace after Combat: Healing the Spiritual and Psychological Wounds of War, a veteran officer and board certified clinical psychologist, who has been in countless sessions with soldiers and their loved ones, shares personal first-hand accounts, proven exercises, and Biblical truth to help combat veterans and those who care to heal both emotionally and spiritually.

  • Table For Two

    $15.99

    Breaking free from an eating disorder is difficult and complex. Those who are suffering often feel misunderstood. They struggle with feeling alone and afraid, ashamed to tell those closest to them. Their loved ones also feel helpless and ill-equipped to care for them. Within this dynamic, hurt, disappointment, and neglect often thrive. From the unique perspective of a husband and wife team, Table for Two shares Krista Dunham’s journey to freedom from her eating disorder while David shares insights as the loved one coming beside her.

    Krista suffered from an eating disorder for over ten years and, by God’s grace and through biblical counseling, overcame it. She openly and honestly shares her experience, describing what she did, what she needed, and what proved helpful in the process of change. In conjunction with her insights, David shares what he did, how he failed, and what he learned along the way as a biblical counselor that was helpful to Krista.

    Without minimizing complicated issues, the Dunhams provide practical, gospel hope and biblical encouragement to those suffering and help for loved ones walking with them. They share personal narratives, interactive exercises, and biblical direction for those navigating recovery. Individuals suffering from an eating disorder – and loved ones – will find practical help, hope, and encouragement in this couple’s story. Applying the truth of Ecclesiastes 4:9-10, they know two are better than one and understand the need to connect and jointly navigate the process together.

    This powerful, redemptive book reveals an intimacy beyond personal stories of struggle told through a biblical counseling lens; it highlights the close-knit relationship of husband and wife and a home life where one person struggles with an eating disorder.

  • Building Bridges : Biblical Counseling Activities For Children And Teens

    $29.99

But with Julie Lowe’s Building Bridges–a practical workbook of expressive activities to do with kids and teens in counseling–you will find the biblical tools you’re looking for.

    There are thoughtful, biblically wise, and creative ways we can engage young people. The responsibility lies on us as adults to work hard at drawing kids out.

    With over fifteen years of counseling experience and by working as a registered play therapist supervisor, Julie Lowe understands there is a need to speak truth and hope into the lives of children and teens in a hands-on, meaningful way. That’s why the activities in Building Bridges can be used over and over in multiple contexts.

  • Caring For The Souls Of Children – A Biblical Counselors Manual

    $29.99

    Coming alongside struggling children can feel like an uphill battle. Yet children struggle with the same desires adults struggle with, are lured by the same lies adults fall prey to, and can find hope in the same source adults can find hope–in Jesus.

  • Pursuing A Heart Of Wisdom

    $16.99

    A healthy body. A strong mind. A good academic record. Success in every extra-curricular activity. A bright future. Out of all the qualities and successes adults desire to see in the lives of teens, a wise and understanding heart should at the top of the list. Grounded in the fear of the Lord, godly wisdom is essential to navigate the minefield of the teenage years. Far too often, it is assumed by many that adolescents are destined to be foolish-hopefully, outgrowing such foolishness by adulthood. Sadly, many teens are left to themselves during these years, dealing with the temptations and the struggles of their hearts and minds all on their own. Yet, all through the Book of Proverbs, young people are taught to gain wisdom through listening to and obeying their parents and other wise adults. If teenagers are to listen and learn wisdom, then parents and other mature adults are to speak wisdom and live wisely before them! To put it in today’s terms, all teens need Biblical counseling in order to pursue a heart of wisdom-and God calls parents and youth ministry leaders to offer them Biblical counsel

    Are you a people helper?

    Virtually anyone with a desire to help others can be a people helper, but often those Christians who feel most called to counsel are unsure of how to use the Bible to ease another person’s problems.

    This book is designed to guide you to a practical, working knowledge of Scripture and the basics of the Christian faith-the core of what Christian counselors must know to be truly effective in helping others. Writing for counselors, students, professionals, and lay people who desire to give genuine Christian help, the author discusses:

    *What is meant by “Christian worldview” and why it’s essential to your counseling.
    *The existence of God, how to know Him, and what His goodness can mean in the lives of those you help.
    *The true message of Jesus Christ and its implications.
    *The power of forgiveness.
    *The roles of church and community in care-giving.
    *How to apply biblical wisdom to issues not addressed in the Bible.

    Most of the problems encountered in counseling are far too diverse and complex to be solved by quoting a Bible verse or by applying some pat biblical formula. But certainly the Bible, God’s revelation, gives a number of specific directions and many clear principles that can give us a framework for counseling and can form the basis of our Christian worldview.
