A new book has been published that critiques major secular counseling models from a biblical perspective.
“Counseling Theory and the Scriptures compares major counseling theories with the principles in the Scriptures on the belief that a biblical perspective of worth and value is essential for those searching for meaning and purpose. Clearly a chasm exists between psychology and the Scriptures relating to the primary “cause and effect” of the human condition. This book is a tool for individual counselors, students in counseling programs, faculty in Christian education, pastors, church staff and interested laypersons.”
Authors: Rick Surley, M.A. is a Board Certified Clinical Psychotherapist and owner of New Beginnings Christian Counseling Clinic in San Antonio, Texas. Roger Alliman, M.A. was a founding officer for Rapha and has taught at Colorado Christian University.
This volume also recognizes man as spirit, soul, and body. The text is available at
