COUNSELING UNDER THE CROSS
How Martin Luther Applied the Gospel to Daily Life
ABOUT THE BOOK
Martin Luther not only reformed theology, but his understanding of the gospel revolutionized soul care. In Counseling Under the Cross, biblical counselor and noted author Bob Kellemen explains how Martin Luther s gospel-centered and cross-focused pastoral care transformed his own approach to soul care. As Kellemen mines Luther s own writings and other first hand accounts, readers will gain a new understanding of how Luther richly, relevantly, robustly, and relationally applied the gospel to suffering, sin, sanctification, and our search for peace with God. Counseling Under the Cross will guide pastors, counselors, lay leaders, and friends toward a rich understanding of the gospel that will directly impact their personal ministry to others. Through lively vignettes, real-life stories, and direct quotes from Luther, readers will be equipped to apply the gospel to themselves and others so together they find their hope and help in Christ alone.

WHAT I THINK!
This book gives information about the teachings of Martin Luther's theology. IT shows us that we need to go back to the basic Bible teachings to help the troublings of our soul, heart and minds. Martin Luther had a love for everyone, since everyone is a child of God. The book gives some of Martin Luther's quote and stories where it shows that as children of God we need to place God in the midst of all we do. The book is not only for teachers of the gospel but for everyone. It gives an insight into the aspect of love. We need to think about others and less about self. When you lend a helping hand to others you reap so much more for yourself. People today need to go back to the basic principles of the scripture. Everyone's soul needs tending and to do so, we need to stand one with the cross. Mr. Kellemen wrote this book, with extensive research to help us understand the Reformer's basic message. IT will warm your heart and strengthen your soul. I encourage all to read this book and take to heart the message.
