This is Jay Adams’ classic book that reintroduced a biblical approach to counseling to the church in 1970. It is still a must read for biblical counselors today. Order your copy from our bookstore.

Who am I? Why am I here? Where am I going? Familiar questions in our day and age. But has our search for answers led us too far in the wrong direction: away from our true position in Christ and toward a dangerous emphasis on self? The last 15 years has seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Easily identified by labels such as “self-image,” “self-worth,” and “self-love,” this movement has one common denominator – the emphasis on self. Regardless of religious persuasion, everyone seems to be fighting what they perceive to be a shared enemy: low self-esteem. Now well-known biblical counselor and noted author Jay Adams brings much-needed clarification to the area of self-esteem and offers the church and every believer a truly Biblical view of self.

Together for Good

We know that God makes everything work together for the good of those who love Him, for those who are called according to His purpose.  (Romans 8:28)
Jay Adams explores the practical outworking of this verse in his third fictional book as we accompany pastor/counselor Greg Dawson in his daily ministry. In “Together for Good: Counseling and the Providence of God”, Greg and a fellow deacon counsel church members and others in the community as they live in this sinful, confusing, and sometimes harsh world. He continually points them to God’s Word in the Bible as he addresses life issues in their lives such as how to deal with:
evil in the world
the beliefs of Jehovah’s Witnesses
preparation for marriage
interpersonal relationships
spiritual growth
There is so much in this book for every Christian – above all, you will discover how God works everything… “Together For Good.”
