Marriage, divorce, and remarriage in the Bible by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
7 editions published between 1980 and 1986 in English and held by 400 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
If the church is going to use the Bible to decide whether divorce is legitimate in certain cases and whether divorced couples have the right to remarry with the approval and blessing of God's people, then the Bible must be studied without prejudice toward a particular answer. The author examines the relevant passages in both the Old and New Testaments so that his readers can consider the many issues and interpretations that arise in trying to establish a consistently biblical position. As a result, readers can see more clearly and accept more firmly the truth of Scripture. The book succeeds at being exactly what the author wanted it to be: "a comprehensive, lucid, accurate study presented in a readable and practical style. . . ." It is a valuable resource for the pastor, counselor, church leader, and others who are struggling to understand and apply scriptural principles to the problems of divorce and remarriage

Shepherding Gods' Flock is both a textbook for students of pastoral ministry and a handbook for pastors. The book is divided into three parts. Pastoral life deals with the pastor, his calling, and the general care he provides the flock. Pastoral counseling provides an overview of the task and a general approach for pastoral counselors.

In its three parts most of the tasks of a pastoral ministry are outlined, and a practical approach to those tasks is developed. - Back cover
The Christian counselor's casebook by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
11 editions published between 1974 and 1990 in English and Spanish and held by 282 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This companion volume to Competent to Counsel and The Christian Counselor's Manual is designed for the classroom, the study, or ministerial seminars. It is an excellent tool for any Christian counselor who is striving for a thoroughly scriptural approach in his counseling. A workbook based on actual counseling experiences, this compilation of cases represents the variety of problems encountered in the course of ordinary pastoral counseling. Jay E. Adams had three major purposes in view as he compiled The Christian Counselor's Casebook: (1) to provide practice in learning how to identify various sorts of problems according to biblical norms, (2) to provide practice in laying out biblical plans of action, and (3) to provide familiarity with a wide variety of representative types of problems that every counselor will sooner or later encounter. The Christian Counselor's Casebook is the tool that will assist those who have studied the counseling techniques explained in the earlier books of Jay E. Adams and now want to put into practice what they have learned. - Back cover
Christian living in the home by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
5 editions published between 1972 and 2004 in English and Spanish and held by 262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is intended to serve two fundamental purposes. First, I hope that individuals and families will use this book on their own. In the home it may be used to evaluate, discuss, and improve on various aspects of the Christian home. I trust that it will point the way to God's solutions to problems. Second, this volume has been designed especially as an aid to Christian counselors. It may be used in conjunction with the counseling of husbands and wives, parents and children, or single members of the family. In the counseling of families, chapters may be assigned for reading and discussion between counseling sessions. The assignments at the end of chapters should be completed before the next session. In the case of premarital counseling, counselors may find it useful to assign chapters 4 through 7. - Preface

The Biblical view of self-esteem, self-love, self-image by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
2 editions published between 1986 and 2003 in English and held by 166 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
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 have seen the rise of a powerful and influential movement within the church. Easily identified by labels such as "self-image," "self-esteem," "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. - Back cover

Handbook of church discipline by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
4 editions published between 1986 and 1989 in English and held by 151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"This is a handbook for pastors, elders, and all Christians who want to see how Scripture presents the process of discipline that should operate in the Christian community. It was written in response to the various concerns that threaten to tear apart marriages, families, friendships, and congregations--concerns that call for a biblical approach to discipline that can heal fractures, restore right relationship, and ensure the health of the church. Developed around the five corrective steps found especially in Matthew 18:15-17, this book helps church leaders deal with the sorts of problems that require the church's disciplinary response. Charting a course that combines discernment with appropriate action, this simple, readable handbook can have a profound effect on the community of believers." --from back cover
Ready to restore : the layman's guide to Christian counseling by Jay Edward Adams ( Book )
3 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 143 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Here, at last, is a guide to Christian counseling written specifically for laymen. Dr. Adams wrote this book in response to hundreds of requests from Christian laymen and pastors. It provides help in a form that is both simple and nontechnical, yet biblical and comprehensive. Although Ready to Restore is simple and easy to use as a beginning textbook, unlike many simple books it is neither simplistic nor superficial. Its contents are the fruit of the author's arduous Bible study as well as his long and successful ministry of the Word in counseling. The chapters comprise a true picture of Christian counseling in a coherent and systematic way. This book can be used effectively for individual study, but the content, scope, format, and language have been especially designed for textbook use in Bible colleges, churches, Bible study groups, prayer meetings, or older youth groups. - Back cover
