Each Friday our BCC staff links you to the top five biblical counseling and Christian living blog posts of the week—posts that provide robust, rich, and relevant insights for living.

Soul Physicians or Car Mechanics?

Ed Welch from CCEF helps us to reflect on the true nature of biblical counseling ministry. He examines biblical, theological, and practical truths in his post Are We Skilled Counseling Mechanics?

Accepted in and through Christ

Easter and Christ’s resurrection are not one-day events only—but an event with eternal significance. Pastor Kevin DeYoung helps us to explore both the eternal and the daily impact of what really happened at the cross in A Resurrection Postscript: Saved by Justice.

Real Friends

Pastor Mark Dutton of Faith Baptist Church (Lafayette, IN) is in the midst of a blog mini-series on biblical friendship. Don’t miss any of the posts, including this one: Real Friends Are Servants.

Of Life, Death, and Eternity

Pastor Brian Croft has an excellent blog Practical Shepherding. Whether you are a pastor, counselor, church leader, or whatever your role in the Body of Christ, we encourage you to read his solid ministry posts such as How Do I Prepare a Sermon for a Funeral?

Depression: A Robust Understanding

Rick Thomas of Counseling Solutions is one of the most prolific Christian bloggers you’ll find—in fact, he may be the most prolific biblical counseling blogger. In this recent post, Depression, Rick addresses ways to look at depression—it’s causes, cure, and care. Be sure to scroll all the way to the bottom where you’ll see links to an extended series on depression. There are numerous views of this topic in biblical counseling, and Rick’s views are well worth pondering.
