Does the Bible have all the answers?

Absolutely, you just need to know where to look. In this NLP book written primarily for Christian pastors and counsellors, the authors reveal a model of communication that facilitates effective counselling and preaching. After all, the Bible presents the how-to manual of living. Well, this book presents the how-to of applying Biblical truths to living. This work offers the first book to apply the basic NLP model to the field of Christian Counseling. The authors designed it, especially for pastors and counsellors and anyone who wants to understand the model from the Judeo-Christian perspective.

The volume strives to involve the reader personally in a first-hand exploration and application of the NLP Model to the biblical text and biblical counselling. It offers Pastors, Counselors, Christian Coaches and Consultants effective tools for renewing the mind, transforming personality, and increasing persuasiveness. Viewing NLP as just a set of tools, neutral in themselves, the authors, both ministers and certified NLP trainers, offer a way of using the valuable facets of NLP to expand and empower your ministry.
