Friends of the BCC,

This has been a momentous month for the BCC! Not only have we released three new BCC-created video resources, but we also are happy to announce the launch of our first BCC Book List as well. We have continued to feature daily blog posts from leaders in the BC movement, and there is exciting work on a BCC book slated for publication in 2013. You can read more about each below:

9 Top Books on the History of Pastoral/Biblical CounselingThis is the first of many BCC Book Lists intended to provide readers with an annotated and collated list of the most significant books in various categories related to biblical counseling. This List explores 9 books that give “vote and voice” to that “great cloud of witnesses” whose lives and ministries have much to teach us about the personal ministry of the Word.

Curing The Heart: A Model For Biblical Counseling
Howard Eyrich and William Hines
Curing The HeartWhat is biblical counseling? Who is the biblical counselor? How do you counsel biblically? In Curing The Heart, Drs. Eyrich and Hines offer an accessible starting point and framework for lay biblical counselors, Bible college and seminary students, or pastors who are beginning to ask these questions.

We are happy to offer all of these resources free of charge to everyone; this is a key part of our vision and will never change. However, we welcome the financial support of individuals and organizations who are committed to furthering the biblical counseling movement. If you feel led to financially support the ongoing ministry of the BCC, please visit our giving page.

May God bless you as you endeavor to walk through this broken world with heavenly hope, divine peace, and unwavering determination. To God be the glory!
