Product description


"Cameron knows his subject, writes simply and clearly, and assesses positions in a fair and balanced way. This book will help readers navigate the different approaches in biblical counseling." -- David Murray, professor of Old Testament and practical theology, Puritan Reformed Theological Seminary, Grand Rapids, Michigan

"Cautious, canny, and clear, Cameron Fraser's sympathetic unpacking of this internal debate in Christian counseling is a bonus for the bemused." -- J. I. Packer, Board of Governors' Professor of Theology, Regent College, Vancouver, BC

"Fair, compelling, and helpful. I hope the book sells very well, and that it advances the cause of Christ as the church grows up in maturity by increasingly learning how to speak the truth in love. It will be required reading in a course of mine." - Heath Lambert, Executive Director, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. Associate Professor of Counseling at the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

From the Back Cover

Are you looking for a brief introduction to what the biblical counseling movement is and how it has changed over the years? In Developments in Biblical Counseling, J. Cameron fraser turns a journalistic eye to this question and presents a concise assessment. introducing us to the formative work of Jay Adams, Fraser outlines several themes of biblical counseling that became foundational for the movement as a whole and observes how the movement received criticisms from outside and made necessary developments from within. He points out that some of these developments have an affinity with Puritan approaches to counseling that Adams rejects and may point in a more consistently biblical direction. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
