Grace-Based Counseling Review

Book Review: 

What better way to heal than to receive grace? Christ has given us grace, and even instructed us to do the same for others, so it’s especially important to become a vessel of grace to those who need healing and guidance. Whether you are a professional counselor, one who counsels, or one being counseled, grace is a gift that can be seen and felt, and it’s an effective tool in healing the wounded and broken.

Grace-Based Counseling showcases a blend of practical applications and biblical standards that work in a variety of relationships, such as dating, marriage, parenting, and even step-parenting. I love how this book’s focus is on the counselor, displaying the responsibility and rewards of counseling with a solid foundation of grace.

I am not a counselor, but I’ve always had the spirit of a mediator and peacemaker, and my friends often seek me for advice or support. Learning and practicing the standards and tools in this book will certainly aid me in helping and encouraging them. Being given the gift of grace (an unmerited gift of kindness, forgiveness, and understanding) I’m motivated to do the same. And the guidance in this book inspires me to be a vessel of grace when counseling others.
