    One thought on “The Biblical Counseling Movement After Adams”

    1. This book is a good read for anyone who is interested in learning more about the history and methodology of biblical counseling. Lambert does an excellent job on showing right appreciation for the first generation of biblical counselors, but also in revealing areas where advancement has taken place and where more growth needs to occur.

    2. I found this book to be very helpful and informative. It provided a perspective on Jay Adams that I hadn't seen before and cleared up some misunderstandings I personally had about his beliefs. As someone who typically learns about a movement by gleaning information as she comes across it in her reading, I also appreciated getting a big picture perspective on where the BC movement came from, where its been, and where its going. Definitely a good read for anyone interested in better understanding [...]

    3. One of my favorite movies, A River Runs Through It begins with the narrator saying “Long ago, when I was a young man, my father said to me, “Norman, you like to write stories.” And I said “Yes, I do.” Then he said, “Someday, when you’re ready you might tell our family story. Only then will you understand what happened and why…”’ In After Adams, Lambert gives a succinct and excellent evaluation of the last forty years of biblical counseling. It combines first class scholarship [...]

    4. I guess anyone who has read about Biblical Counselling would have know Jay Adams, Edward Welch, David Powlison, and many others. But few would know that the there are some differences between the first (Adams) and the second (Welch & Powlison) generation of biblical counseling.These differences are presented in this book by Lambert, and he has carefully separated them into 5 chapters, with one remaining chapter on what biblical counsellors ought to continue to work on.The first chapter sets [...]

    5. The author is an appropriate candidate for this subject. He met Jay Adams and studied under Eric L. Johnson who previously evaluated the biblical (nouthetic) counseling movement. Heath Lambert has a unique perspective on the subject. Further, he is both a practicing biblical counseling professor and pastor. It is good to have someone address the situation from both a practical and professional mindset.SummaryAs the title states, the book is about the biblical counseling movement after Jay Adams. [...]

    6. This was an outstanding book. Insightful analysis of the history of the biblical counseling movement since Jay Adams. Lambert is detailed in his research, honest about weaknesses, yet at the same time charitable in his conclusions. Very valuable for understanding where the field of biblical counseling stands now, where it came from, as well as where it needs to go in the future.

    7. Good read for all who love biblical counseling. At the same time, I think you could get the gist by reading the intro and the ends of chapters. Also, his final chapter is also worth a full read.

    8. Muita coisa boa e útil para se pensar no movimento de aconselhamento bíblico. Parece-me que Lambert exagera em algumas críticas a Adams e limita demais o escopo do livro aos autores do CCEF. Embora estes corretamente sejam identificados como desenvolvedores do movimento de aconselhamento bíblico, há muitos outros ramos do movimento.

    9. An easy read that gives an overview of the progress of the BC Movement and removes the misconceptions about the old and the new school leaders that have been cause for suspicion and division. As the title reflects, it shows progress in many areas, one I found particularly helpful is the work on idolatry especially the transition of the OT use to the NT.A book definitely worth reading.

    10. A helpful review of the developments in the second generation of the biblical counseling movement. Lambert's appraisal differs slightly from my own experience, but his work is well documented and carefully argued.

    11. Well said--exactly my thinking on the issue of how the Biblical Counseling movement has matured and grown! Suffering, compassion, heart issues--all were very evident at the beginning, but they are now more beautifully articulated--PTL!

    12. This book ended up being far more significant than I thought it would be. No one should seek to intelligently talk about or critique the biblical counseling movement until they've read Lambert's book. This was his dissertation and Powlison was on his committee.

    13. A little heavy on the quotes, but a nice overview of the biblical counseling movement - how it is the same, where it has grown, and where it needs to still develop.
