Together, these authors make a biblical case for why we need to take a person’s cultural heritage, more specifically their ethnicity, into account in counseling. As biblical counseling grows worldwide, and our communities become more diverse, our counsel must be attuned to a person’s cultural context so we can apply relevant gospel care. Recognizing the breadth of this significant subject, the authors lay the foundation for further discussion by establishing a biblical framework, describing real-life illustrations, and offering a brief case study.
