Counseling Under the Cross (Review)
This review is for the book "Counseling Under the Cross" by Bob Kellemen. I was really intrigued about this book because I have learned a lot about Martin Luther recently, and the subtitle of this book is "How Martin Luther Applied the Gospel to Daily Life". This book was incredibly interesting and an in-depth study on Luther's theology, but somehow written in a way that keeps the reader's interest.
In this book, Kellemen spends a chapter on a specific theology of Luther's, and then follows up with a chapter on his methodology. For example, he explains Luther's theology of suffering in one chapter, and then in the next he shows how he applied that theology to everyday life. The book also begins with a background of Luther so the reader becomes more familiar with his spiritual journey.
I loved this book and found it very fascinating. I definitely recommend it!
Thank you to Litfuse Publicity for a copy of the book.
