What Is Biblical Counseling, Anyway?

Journal of Biblical Counseling 16:1

In this editorial, Ed Welch argues that biblical counseling is a hybrid of discipleship and biblical friendship. Welch maintains that Scripture speaks with great breadth, to all the common problems we all encounter, from loneliness to schizophrenia. He argues that God speaks with great depth, getting to the very heart of problems and that all life is lived before the face of God. Welch concludes with comments on the process of biblical counseling. He argues that biblical counseling maintains that all God’s people are counselors, counselors need other people and counselors are called to love other people.
