A Word from the Author

“It was a delight to bring together some of the world’s most highly respected Academics, Clinicians and Bible Scholars to help deliver The Popular Encyclopedia of Christian Counseling. Without question this book delivers a rich, robust text that is clinically excellent and Biblically solid. Being able to co-edit and author this work with Dr. Ron Hawkins, whom I regard as a spiritual father, was a real joy.

“May God encourage your heart and expand your helping ministry as you serve those who desperately need the emotional freedom and spiritual vibrancy that a personal relationship with Jesus Christ can bring.”
Tim Clinton, author of The Popular Encyclopedia of Christian Counseling
