Friday's 5 To Live By

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.

Brad Hambrick posted a moving excerpt from Paul Tripp’s A Shelter in the Time of Storm. Be encouraged as you read Spiritual Muscles.

Mike Emlet and Tim Lane of CCEF address a very important topic: how does counseling in a church compare and contrast with counseling in a para-church setting. Listen to their podcast interview Difference between Counseling at CCEF and in a Church.
