✏Making Christian Counseling More Christ Centered Book Summary : “Martin Luther formulated his proclamation of the message of Scripture for his contemporaries between the poles of God’s voice in the pages of the Bible and the needs and afflictions of his hearers and readers. Marrs brings twenty-first century readers into that exchange and demonstrates how Luther’s insights into the gospel of Jesus Christ help bring healing and comfort to those struggling with guilt, shame, fear, loneliness, and other spiritual afflictions in our day. This volume provides those who are engaged in conversation with the troubled and distressed rich resources for fostering peace and joy in the midst of such trouble and distress.” Robert Kolb, professor of systematic theology emeritus, Concordia Seminary, Saint Louis USA “If all good theology is pastoral in its orientation, then this groundbreaking, practical, biblical study is well worth careful consideration by any pastor or Christian counsellor.” John W. Kleinig, PhD, Professor Emeritus, Australian Lutheran College, University of Divinity, Adelaide, South Australia Many Christian counselors and pastors want to bring Christ’s Gospel and forgiveness into their soul care, but don’t know how. Luther’s very Christ-centered theology, based in his desire for care of souls, can provide us with that foundation. Various techniques flowing from that foundation are shared.
