Synopsis: Integrating counseling--theory and practice--with the
biblical revelation has now been attempted many times and with
considerable success. However, in Walking Alongside, Bill Andersen
has attacked the connection from a different angle. His starting
point is what the Bible says about people, and God's relationship
with them. He has chosen, from biblical theology, major features
that should characterize Christian life, and has used these as
presuppositions for any form of people-helping, but especially for
counseling. From here the task has been to trace their therapeutic
effects in the lives of those human beings needing such help.
Endorsements: "Generally winsome, personable, and accessible. An
interesting and engaging piece." --Andrew Sloane, Lecturer, Old
Testament and Christian Thought, Morling College "This book will
serve a useful purpose, especially for those preparing, as
Christians, for a counseling career. They will appreciate three
things: the fair and balanced way contemporary writings are
discussed; the fact that, on a few proposals, Andersen comes down
strongly with disapproval, giving reasons for doing so; and the
relationship between counseling and Scripture, with the conviction
that basic biblical concepts can and should be wedded to one's
counseling techniques." --David Stewart, former Principal, Bible
