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. This week we are linking to posts related to biblical counseling and mental illness.
Mental Illness and the Church
In our three-year history of the Friday 5, we’ve likely only linked to one of our own posts two or three times. Today is one of those rare exceptions. Dr. Jeremy Pierre of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary shared an excellent post with our BCC Grace & Truth readers entitled Mental Illness and the Church.

David Murray has a thought-provoking post that biblical counselors may agree with at some points and have some disagreements with at other points. You can read it here and decide for yourself at Maximizing and Minimizing Mental Illness.
