Today, churches are increasingly placing their confidence in Christian psychology as the answer to their need for the ministry of counseling. But counseling is not primarily the work of the professional: it is a crucial way for believers in Christ to demonstrate biblical love toward one another within a gospel-centered, truth-driven, and grace-dispensing church environment. That is the main point of this book.
Solidly rooted in the belief that the Scriptures are sufficient for every soul-related struggle in life, and totally committed to the truth that the Holy Spirit is competent to accomplish the work of sanctification, this paradigm-shifting book will challenge every believer.
In his companion work, Counsel Your Flock, Paul concentrated on the role that teaching shepherds have in leading God's people to spiritual maturity by faithfully equipping them for effective ministry. Here he biblically presents, and thoroughly defends, every believer's responsibility to work toward God's goal to conform us to the image of His Son-a goal that will not be reached apart from a targeted form of discipleship, most often referred to as "counseling."

With all the attacks against the Christian faith and the supremacy of God's word, Paul Tautges does a masterful job in his biblical theology of personal discipleship. I would highly recommend this book for all Christians who desire to walk intimately and confidently with our risen Savior. Paul's keen insight into God's holy and infallible word was truly a blessing to me!
