We are pleased to announce the publication of a new book by Jay Adams entitled Types of People—How to Counsel Them Biblically. We have not seen anything like this in print anywhere else and have found it to be both insightful and (especially) helpful. If you have had some experience as a counselor you will quickly identify some of these kinds of people as having sat across the desk from you at one time or another. Jay does far more than simply categorize—that is the easy part—he provides concrete help for the counselor as he seeks to minister the Word of God to each one and points the counselor to solid, biblical, and practical solutions for the the challenges each type of counselee presents.
Here is the list of the kinds of people Jay describes:
- Anxious to Cooperate
- Interested, but Uncertain
- Lazy and Indifferent
- Disorganized and Undisciplined
- Complainers and Whiners
- Envious, Jealous, and Bitter
- Overly Casual
If you are a counselor, you will not only profit from this book, you will enjoy the ride. Jay’s vast experience, his clarity in writing, and pointed biblical solutions will sharpen your skills and bless your counselees.
