This book, Biblical Counseling: A Topical Index for Christian Living, is a compilation of over 200 topics describing difficult situations that every one of us, believers and nonbelievers alike, may face in life at one time or another. It is completely searchable by typing in a topic, or tapping or clicking the contents page.
The topics are listed alphabetically, some with subtopics to cover different aspects of a situation. For example, when you see the topic Abortion, you’ll notice the subtopics, “Contemplating abortion,” and “Forgiveness after abortion.”
Next, we pulled nuggets from Pastor Chuck’s commentaries to help you apply God’s Word to your particular situation. Oftentimes you will find that these commentaries give illustrations to explain clearly and simply what God has to say. After Pastor Chuck’s commentary, you will find a list of Scripture references that pertain to each topic, categorizing them as:
God’s Perspective: How God views a situation; His commandments for or against it. God’s Promises: What God will do for someone who chooses to obey His Word. How to Make a Change: How a person can bring about change in their life. Biblical Examples: Events and characters in the Bible that portray the topic. Prayers Found in the Bible: Actual prayers as an example or pattern to emulate.
This digital book has additional features when you click or tap the following: Scripture References: the entire passage is accessible to view.

When people came to Pastor Chuck distraught and heartbroken seeking his counsel for their personal dilemma, he simply replied, “The best thing I can do is give you God’s Word rather than my own thoughts or opinions.”
When we understand that the Bible is the final authority for our faith, it eliminates any confusion when it comes to issues in life. As soon as we accept the Bible as God’s Word, we then have the basis for guidance and direction. Following its precepts brings us into spiritual maturity and we’re able to live a life pleasing to God. So when we get off course, God’s Word corrects us, instructs us, and guides us back on track. This wisdom from above equips us to face any crisis and enables us to help others who may be going through difficult situations.
In our beloved Pastor Chuck’s life, three qualities were evident––His love for God, His love for the Word of God, and His love for people. Though he has gone on to receive His eternal heavenly reward, thankfully he has left us with a legacy of studying God’s Word chapter by chapter, verse by verse. He once said, “When we step out in faith, we have the Word of God to step out upon.”

This book does not replace the leading of the Holy Spirit; however, it's a great resource to have at your fingertips. Compared to other similar titles, like The Quick Scripture Reference For Counseling by John G. Kruis and The Calvary Chapel Scripture Reference Guide, Biblical Counseling has everything those books have BUT more---Pastor Chuck's commentaries just break down the Word for me. Also the scripture references are easy to find because they are categorized (promises, application, etc.) rather than all bunched together. I would think everyone involved in ministry, every church employee would benefit from having this downloaded on their phone so that when, not if, that moment comes to help another person, they have it at their fingertips, quick and easy to use. It truly deserves 5 stars!
This is an awesome book for ministering to others as well as growing in your personal knowledge of God's word. I love having the ability to do topical studies on common problems and questions we all have in applying scripture to living in this world. This book is a great way to find relavant scripture to topics fast and links to similar subjects.
It is very helpful to reference scriptures throughout the Bible that pertain to a given subject.
