A COMPARISON PAPER: CRABB’S EFFECTIVE BIBLICAL COUNSELING Dr. Larry Crabb believes that “God has ordained the local church to be His primary instrument to tend to his people's aches and pains.” He lays out a counseling plan for the local church to use in his book, Effective Biblical Counseling: A Model for Helping Caring Christians Become Capable Counselors (Grand Rapids, MI: Zondervan, 1977). In this standard textbook for Christian counselors, he reminds us that people “will never be happy if [they are] concerned primarily with becoming happy (Crabb, page 22).” The real goal of life and thus the path of happiness is glorifying God and serving others. SUMMARY: The author’s theory/methodology 1. Primary goal (What is the desired outcome?) Dr. Crabb shares that the biblical goal of counseling goals should be to help people move over to the path of righteousness (Crabb, 28); and help them move up in their maturity to be like Christ (Crabb, 29).

I have successfully read Crisis counseling: A guide for Pastors and Professionals, now its time for practical application. While reading this book I thought of several different ministries within my local church assembly that could benefit from this book. Especially since my church is located in the heart of a very high risk community, I believe it is important to educate our ministry on how to deal with crises as well as to show them and guide them through the process. Showing the community that the church is still relevant and that we care about the well-being of the people is how we all can cope with and get through crises. As stated before the plan of action is simple, however, we as the body of Christ have got to become more sensitive to the needs of the people and the one of the ways we can do that is through counseling.
Part Two The biblical/Christian worldview belief derived from biblical text and scriptures are based on the Word of God. Five important questions individuals need asked so one can fully develop and understand his/her true relationship with God.

The first question one may answer in discovering his/her worldview is what origin is.

4-MAT Review: Psychology, Theology, and Spirituality in Christian Counseling By Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D. Angelique Lawhenore, Student ID 130818 Liberty University COUN 506 August 6, 2009 Author: Mark R. McMinn Publisher: Tyndale House Publishers, Carol Stream, IL Date: 1996 Abstract This book was written by McMinn (1996) to directly address “two secret places in counselors’ lives.” The first place is in the counseling office and the second place is the spiritual life of the Christian counselor (p. xi).
