    What do the members of this board think of Biblical Counseling? I am currently reading Gary Almay's, How Christian Is Christian Counseling, which renders to a pile of waste Christian counseling that uses secular methods. I've also read An Introducation to Biblical Counseling by John MacArthur, et al, which I found helpful.

    I am looking into the MA/PhD Biblical Counseling program at Whitefield Theological Seminary, which is a distance education program. Any knowledge or opinions of this school, especially in regards to the Biblical Counseling program?

    How many here are trained in Biblical Counseling, either certified or degreed?

    I have heard from numerous respectable sources that nouthetic counseling is definitely the way to go.

    Good Evening Andrew,

    Thanks for the link.

    Yes, I should have mentioned Jay Adams, the granddaddy of the modern Biblical Counseling movement. I've been to the NANC site many times and I learned a lot about the BC movement and am convinced that this is the way to go.

    What I was wondering is: how many board members here adhere to BC and practice it and how might be certified and/or degreed in the discipline?

    Yes, indeed. However, at the moment, financial considerations, I'm afraid, will hinder me from pursuing a degree.
