The mission of the Journal of Biblical Counseling (JBC) is to develop clear thinking and effective practice that faithfully brings God’s Word to bear on the problems of daily living. Over the decades, we have published more than 1,000 articles on a variety of counseling topics. The Must Reads series is a helpful entryway into this wealth of material. Each issue provides a group of carefully selected articles on an important topic such as sexuality, anxiety, counseling methodology and counseling in the church.
This new issue in the Must Reads series addresses a common problem—conflict. The content spans a range of topics including conflict in marriage, in churches, and between individuals. In addition, two articles address anger and its contribution to the “fights and quarrels among you.” As always, we hope that you find these articles helpful to your counseling and pastoral ministries.
