The American Association of Christian Counselors and Tyndale House Publishers are committed to ministering to the spiritual needs of people. This book is part of the professional series that offers counselors the latest techniques, theory, and general information that is vital to their work. While many books have tried to integrate theology and psychology, this book takes another step and explores the importance of the spiritual disciplines in psychotherapy, helping counselors to integrate the biblical principles of forgiveness, redemption, restitution, prayer, and worship into their counseling techniques. Since its first publication in 1996, this book has quickly become a contemporary classic―a go-to handbook for integrating what we know is true from the disciplines of theology and psychology and how that impacts your daily walk with God. This book will help you integrate spiritual disciplines―such as prayer, Scripture reading, confession―into your own life and into counseling others.

Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D., is professor of psychology at Wheaton College Graduate School in Wheaton, Illinois, where he directs and teaches in the Doctor of Psychology program. A diplomate in Clinical Psychology of the American Board of Professional Psychology, McMinn has thirteen years of postdoctoral experience in counseling, psychotherapy, and psychological testing. McMinn is the author of Making the Best of Stress: How Life’s Hassles Can Form the Fruit of the Spirit; The Jekyll/Hyde Syndrome: Controlling Inner Conflict through Authentic Living; Cognitive Therapy Techniques in Christian Counseling; and Christians in the Crossfire (written with James D.

The book is updated from 1986. And the way he updates it is the best I’ve ever seen. he adds the update after the chapter to not change the orginal text that helped so many but to only add to it! The language used…

NOT AS ADVERTISED – OLD EDITION The cover you see is for the 2011 edition, not the one they send you….which is the 1996 original edition. Much as been updated. If you are purchasing for a class you will be sorely disappointed.

A must have for Christian counselor and pastors Got this book for one of my classes and I am glad I was required to read it. McMinn is a reputable writer and professional with many great books supporting his work. He writes from a professional perspective at the same time easy to understand for those who are not familiar with psychology terms. He addresses the concept of sin, confession, Scriptures and many other relevant aspect of the person from both psychological and theological perspective. You will not find a better book neither for the…
