Summary: What is Christian Counselling? When should we use a Christian Counsellor and when should we use a secular counsellor? Paul Tripp in this book books at the unique role of Christian Counselling in getting to the heart of many problems Christians face, and also (he would argue) our world faces. His particular focus is to help us help each other and to empower the community of believers to help themselves to wholeness.

Best point: Enables ordinary people with no counselling training to see where they can help.

Worst point: If not read carefully, could prevent people from accessing more appropriate secular help.

Rating 0-10: 7

Who should read it : This is aimed at everyday Christians, but those without a clear faith will also find many of the concepts helpful.
