Having taught biblical counseling for over 30 years through the Institute of Christian Counseling and at home and abroad, I can heartily recommend the book “Sixteen Sessions with the Wonderful Counselor” by Dr. Daniel Peters. Here you will find practical, straight from the should help for people in need with loving, sensitive concern. God’s Word is skillfully woven into the material lending the note of God’s authority. “Sixteen Sessions with the Wonderful Counselor” is a good book to give to counselees and a great book in helping to train lay people.

In “Sixteen Sessions with the WONDERFUL COUNSELOR” Dan Peters wastes no words as he mines from the wealth of Scripture the wisdom and ways of our God in applying His truth to a variety of real-life situations. Great value is found in the stimulating questions at the end of each chapter and then even greater value is discovered in his wise answers in the back of the book. This is a concise and sharp tool in equipping one another to aid others in their battle with sin and its difficult effects.” “Here you will find practical, straight-from-the-shoulder help for people in need, with loving, sensitive concern. God’s Word is skillfully woven into the material lending the note of God’s authority. “Sixteen Sessions with the WONDERFUL COUNSELOR” is a good book to give to counselees and a great book in helping to train lay people.

This book isn’t another self-help book based upon pop psychology. Dan Peters has gleaned some wonderful insights from the Bible on how God himself counseled people. This is a wonderful tool to get to know God better and how to counsel others in these same areas. As an expositor of the Bible and a biblical counselor that I’ve respected over the years, Dan consistently allows the text of Scripture to speak for itself rather than reading into it. This book is a wonderful tool to train future pastors. This is a must read for pastors, counselors and small group members.”

I read your book and think it is fantastic. Your simple, Bible-based approach to life’s most tangled issues is both inspiring and refreshing in an age that promotes the wisdom of man.
Dr. David Nelson, President, Founder & Executive Director at Crossing Cultures International.
Every now and then somebody comes up with an idea that is so profound and yet so simple that you really wish you could have thought of it. Dr. Peter’s study about the “Wonderful Counselor” is just such an idea. If you are going to study counseling, why not learn from the best? There is no question that our Creator is the best source of wise counsel for His own creatures. Dr. Peters points out many biblical examples of where God personally gives much needed counsel. This study provides a rich resource for all of us who long to really help those who are hurting.
