Comments The Biblical Counseling Movement: History and Context

  • Josh

    Excellent. Read this along with Heath Lambert's more recent analysis of the second generation biblical counseling movement for a fuller picture.


  • Blake

    If you are curious to know more about the history of the true Biblical Counseling movement, beginning back when Jay Adams published his infamous book, "Competent to Counsel," then this book by David Powlison is the book for you. Actually, the author writes about the theological and ecclesiastical culture leading up to the release of the Competent book, showing what lead Adams to feel compelled to write this book that in many ways shook the church. Powlison helps one understand why the Competent [...]

    David Powlison is an excellent writer and story-teller. This is not a dry history, but a flowing narrative. I am now reading Lambert's sequel to this book.


  • Nate Claiborne

    I'm glad I was able to read through this book and I found it helpful in several ways. I would count myself as standing in the overlap between the two types of readers I highlighted above. I am interested in promoting biblical counseling and think on the whole, Adams was on to something, and was more or less right about the place of biblical counseling in distinction from what psychologists are up to. I am also interested in apologetics and seeing Adams as an apologist has been informative as wel [...]

    Incredible book. Powlison performed a great service in writing this book (which is basically his doctoral dissertation prepared for broader publication). I've been helped immensely by it as we've spent the last two years building and preparing to launch our inaugural biblical counseling ministry training here at Bridgeway. I would recommend following it up by reading Heath Lambert's "Biblical Counseling Movement After Adams" which serves as a chronological sequel of sorts to this book. A nice on [...]

    I can't say enough about the wisdom of this man. This book is not for everyone - it has a pretty specific audience, it is a specific academically-written history of the moments and thoughts of a specific group of people. But for me this book is one of those rare works I can call seminal - one that not only teaches you, but points you in a direction to a path down which you begin to walk. And it has a lot to do with the man behind the book and all the wisdom he distills into every careful word.


  • Gabriel Davis

    Excellent book! I would recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in the differences between counseling modes ("Christian", "Biblical", "Integration") or to anyone that wants to know more about Biblical counseling. This book is part biography and part Biblical counseling outline and defense.


  • Mandy J. Hoffman

    This is a deep and challenging read if you are not accustomed to academic reads. However, while the first chapter was a bit dizzying, it quickly got to a historical timeline of Biblical counseling which was fascinating and helpful. Gaining a big picture view of the birth and growth of nouthetic counseling was most helpful in continuing the practice today.


  • Jeff

    I can say this is the most interesting dissertation I've ever read. I actually don't remember whether I've read any others. Anyway, I now feel that I have a good grasp on Jay Adams development of nouthetic counseling and the birth of the Christian Counseling Education Foundation.
