Paul the Counselor The Apostle Paul had a passion to help Christians grow spiritually and apply biblical principles to the everyday challenges they encountered and that we face today. In that sense, Paul taught the same lessons that biblical counselors teach today. We are all called to counsel and disciple one another and the practical lessons in this book will be referred to over and over again. Chapters are authored by men and women who are biblical counselors and include such topics as Paul’s model of change, Paul’s lessons on temptation, renewing the mind, women in ministry and leaving the past behind.

Psychological terms are used in everyday conversations, and not always with the correct meaning.

The Bible’s teaching on each issue is clearly presented, along with extensive Scripture cross-references to facilitate Bible study.

The Christian's Guide to Psychological Terms

Retail: $25.95

 

Christian's Guide to Psychological Terms There is a great emphasis on self in our culture today; self-esteem, self-love, self-worth, self-image and many more. Love for self motivates us to follow our own agenda, vent our feelings, justify self, and blame someone else or something else for problems we face. This is not taught in the Bible. The main emphasis on self in the Bible is self-denial and self-sacrifice. This book examines the words and actions of Jesus Christ and will demonstrate that He was others-oriented; that he taught and modeled self-denial as opposed to self-love. A Christian cannot esteem himself and take up the cross at the same time.

Understanding Temptation

We can find victory over sin and temptation when we know our own specific sinful tendencies, the power of the enemy, and what he uses to tempt us. Knowing our enemy’s plan of attack can prepare our hearts to map out a strategy for overcoming temptation. Jesus was tempted in the same three basic ways in which we are tempted:

  • We can do what we want (Lust of the Flesh)
  • We can have what we want (Lust of the Eyes)
  • We can be what we want (Pride of Life)

Here you will find the biblical antidotes for each of these powerful temptations, and learn to be victorious over the temptations of the heart.

Marriage is hard

The reality is that all marriages are hard because they all have unavoidable and unanticipated challenges and trials. Marriage is hard because it is the union of two sinners engaged in the eternal battle between self-centeredness and servanthood, between living for self or dying to self. Marriages can flourish or die on this battlefield. But God is faithful, and He has a gracious plan of heart-transformation for any wife who will commit her way to Him.

Great for small group Bible Study. Study questions for each of ten chapters.

Six Stone Jars The first, SIX STONE JARS: God's Remedy for Fear, Worry and Anxiety, addresses Paul's seemingly impossible instruction in Philippians 4:6 to "not be anxious about anything."

This book gives six biblical, useful and practical tools to combat those times of fear, worry and anxiety. 10 Week Bible Study.

Seven Stone Steps

SEVEN STONE STEPS is the third in a trilogy of books that focus on the three commands of Philippians 4:6-9. This book addresses Paul's stern directive to actually do the things he has taught them. (Philippians 4:9). The picture here is from Ezekiel's vision of seven steps leading up to the temple combining with Peter's directive to add seven specific virtues to our faith. "Add to your faith goodness, knowledge, self-control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness and love." (2 Peter 1:5-7). But just what do those mean? What kind of "goodness"? "Knowledge of what?" And how can we ever expect to be "godly"?

What we find in the end is that these are reasonable and understandable virtues. These are the things that my Father loves and that is my motive for stepping up. 10 Week Bible Study.
