Everyone needs help from time to time, especially in the midst of painful circumstances and difficult trials. In this short audiobook, a highly respected biblical counselor and successful author offers practical guidance for all Christians - pastors and laypeople alike - who want to develop their "helping skills" when it comes to walking alongside hurting people. Written out of the conviction that friends are the best helpers, this accessible introduction to biblical counseling will equip believers to share their burdens with one another through gentle words of wisdom and kind acts of love.
This book is written for those eager to see God use ordinary relationships and conversations between ordinary Christians to work extraordinary miracles in the lives of his people.

The best parts were the practical, example questions and dialogues given to help the reader put into practice the things being discussed, & the scripture references. Upon reflection, this book isn't so revolutionary as it is refreshing, but it seems remarkably new while reading it because of the simplicity and clarity with which it addresses complex, difficult situations.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book that spoke to ordinary me! The section on praying was both informative and the best I have read so far. This book brought home truths in a direct and educative manner, that did not offend .
As someone who desires to help others but is at a loss for words, I was especially helped by suggestions of specific things to say & not to say in particular situations in order to build others up in love.
Biblical counselors have a great grasp of the Bible and its truths. However, typically, they don't put much effort on driving them home with powerful stories and illustrations. Fifty more stories/illustrations would have helped the reader through this fantastic content.
I will be returning to this book may times for references action plans the author did a great job spoke together also it was enjoyable to read
