I really appreciate the time, effort and expense it takes to make a reviewer copy available to me. “Walk It Out” by Tricia Goyer is a thoughtful and thought-provoking challenge to live a life of love as we obey what the Bible teaches us.   This autobiographical book takes the reader on a journey with the author as she experienced a turning-point moment in her Christian walk where she moved from a “God help me” to a “how can I help You God” kind of faith.

Counseling Under the Cross by Bob Kellemen

In  Counseling Under the Cross , biblical counselor and noted author Bob Kellemen explains how Martin Luther's gospel-centered and cross-focused pastoral care transformed his own approach to soul care. As Kellemen mines Luther's own writings and other first hand accounts, readers will gain a new understanding of how Luther richly, relevantly, robustly, and relationally applied the gospel to suffering, sin, sanctification, and our search for peace with God. Counseling Under the Cross  will guide pastors, counselors, lay leaders, and friends toward a rich understanding of the gospel that will directly impact their personal ministry to others. Through lively vignettes, real-life stories, and direct quotes from Luther, readers will be equipped to apply the gospel to themselves
