The mission of the Journal of Biblical Counseling (JBC) is to develop clear thinking and effective practice in biblical counseling. We seek to do this through publishing articles that faithfully bring the God of truth, mercy and power to the issues that face pastoral ministries of counseling and discipleship.

“Journal, in our case, means it’s serious. It’s not just a bunch of fluffy stories. It’s about stuff of substance. Our vision of journal is not stuffy, a zillion footnotes, erudite, polysyllabic abstractions put in the passive voice. Our actual model to which we aspire is the kind of writing that the Bible itself exhibits: practical theology. It’s got tons of content but it’s spoken right to people and right to the human heart, and it’s intended to make a difference. Yes, it’s called a journal. But it’s not stuffy and heady. It’s thoughtful, but targeted to real people.”
