Gerlin Valencia, Ph.D.
Eric Johnson's work, Foundations for SoulCare: A Christian Psychology Proposal, is a well-researched, well-written, and sophisticated proposal to the counseling community. His efforts to bring about a Christian psychology for the healing of souls in the context of the Christian church, should be seen as the foundational bedrock for the implementation of a model that is biblically grounded and psychologically sophisticated. Johnson's appraisal of the need for counseling that is, biblical without being myopic; spiritual and traditionally informed; and pragmatic for the dilemmas of souls in the cultural context of the church of the twenty-first century in the United States, is a remarkable achievement. The book is a must read for people entering the counseling field. Clinicians, pastoral therapists, preachers and pastors, lay people and anybody interested in learning about the ministry of soul care within a congregational setting will enjoy reading Johnson's book.Above all, Johnson's conservative lens makes this text a trusted source for spiritual growth in submission to the revealed Word of God.Johnson's work will prove to be a wonderful blessing to the church of Jesus Christ, He who is the Lord of the church.
