A Theology of Biblical Counseling: The Doctrinal Foundations of Counseling Ministry (Zondervan, 2016). Due out this week by Heath Lambert. Can’t wait to give it a thorough read!
The book shares the format of Jay Adams’s More Than Redemption: A Theology of Christian Counseling (i.e., applying the loci and illustrating their importance to the practice of counseling), but brings many of the advances in both thinking and tone that have been made by the 2nd and 3rd generation of biblical counselors. Note: For a very helpful treatment of the similarities and differences between Adams and those after him, Lambert’s dissertation is definitely worth the read, The Biblical Counseling Movement After Adams (Crossway, 2012).
