Martin and Deidre Bobgan present a Christ-centered approach to nurture the spiritual life of believers and equip them to fight the good fight of faith and thereby confront problems of living through exercising faith in Christ and the Word. This book also reveals the innate sinfulness of problem-centered counseling, shows how problem-centered counseling leads Christians into feeding the flesh and quenching the Spirit, and gives reasons why Christians must abandon the problem-centered approach. The authors contend that person-to-person ministry must be Christ-centered rather than problem-centered. To meet this goal, they explain how both the one who ministers and the one who is receiving ministry will be doing three things: (1) abandoning problem-centeredness; (2) embracing the biblical truth about the role of problems; (3) becoming Christ-centered on a daily basis. The believer who remembers these three elements while ministering to fellow believers will find that, as fellow believers learn to give primary attention to Christ instead of talking about the problems, see problems of living as opportunities for spiritual growth, and develop a daily devotional life wherein they learn to walk according to the Spirit, the Lord will give them wisdom for the problems of living. The purpose of this book is to encourage believers who are called and gifted by God to minister Christ to one another.
