    I liked this greatly. Perhaps because I read it directly after reading another which treated problems such as depression as a sin problem. I'm sorry, I'm not into that. This was very refreshing to read afterwards. It was very balanced and well-measured, but then it was merely a basic overview. An entire book could be written off of each of its chapters.

    I read this (all 850 pages!) for a counseling class. It is more of a reference book than an in depth counseling text book. I can see turning to different topics as needed in my private practice.

    This is the longest book I’ve ever read. Worth the time. How I interact with people facing real life situations is crucial to the impact of my ministry.

    I read this book back in Bible College and it was known then as "The Big Yellow Book" on Counseling. Each chapter deals with separate issues, so if you know ahead of time the subject you're dealing with in counseling, you can read and plan ahead. Some points are arguable and subjective, but it is a good resource for people who need an "all-in-one" book to guide them in counseling. However, I prefer the Bible, but a man of many cousnselors is considred wise - this book gives good perspectives fro I read this book back in Bible College and it was known then as "The Big Yellow Book" on Counseling.

    This is not an in-depth guide but an overview of each topic and very useful for this. This is often seen as one of the 'go to' reference books for Christian Counselling. Like any book giving an overview, it's a start only and by itself is not enough.

    This is a ready great book. My first year at Trinity International University Christian Counseling was one of my required text books for my psychology class.

    Excellent book. I will continue to use this as a valuable resource throughout ministry. I've already recommended it and shared with others in ministry.

    It's definitely a good reference, but I prefer lots more stories and personal anecdotes, so, I can only give 3 stars.
