I was excited when offered this book to review.
I want to care like Christ
The first thoughts I had when I received it was 'Deep' and 'Text book'.
Before the book arrived I did a little research and found this on Amazon . . .
How does a person learn to counsel others with the truth of God’s Word? Bob Kellemen believes that the best way to learn counseling is by doing it—by giving and receiving biblical counseling in the context of real, raw Christian community.
The following is an endorsement found in the front of the book . . .
. . .
Gospel Conversations is just what pastors, local church leaders, and compassionate laywomen and men need as we serve and minister to those God has placed around us. We come in contact with people who are suffering and struggling each and every day. Gospel Conversations by Dr. Bob Kellemen will equip us all to better speak both truth and love in a way that is winsome and wise.” —Dr. Steve Viars, Senior Pastor, Faith Church, Lafayette, IN; Author of Putting Your Past in Its Place
For me this book reads like a text book. I think for a lay person it is a very, very deep read.
With my highlighter in hand and notebook I am slowly delving in chapter after chapter.
The author suggests using the book in a group setting. I tend to agree that it is much better suited for a group study.
