|dc.description.abstract||This project sought to equip Life Group leaders at Bellevue Baptist Church to provide biblical counseling to members of their Life Groups and others. Chapter 1 explains the context and details of the project. Chapter 2 establishes a biblical basis for the project by exploring five passages of Scripture that speak to what biblical counseling is and how it is accomplished.
Chapter 3 examines the basic beliefs of two schools of counseling, integrationist and biblical counseling. The two perspectives are evaluated in three areas: the acknowledgement of God and the sufficiency of His Word, the approach to addressing life issues, and the accomplishment of the counseling concepts. In addition, the specific life issues of marriage, depression, fear, addiction, anger, and forgiveness are inspected from each viewpoint. Chapter 4 details the participant selection process, the research instrumentation, training schedule, and the curriculum. Chapter 5 is an evaluation of the project.||en_US
