Welcome to this research guide for Marriage Counseling: A Cross-Cultural Approach. This guide will help you find resources that you can use for your course project and CRA paper.
Marital distress is universal. This course attempts to address the void of pastoral training in marriage counseling. Founded on God’s Word, it begins by looking at a model of lasting change based on a biblical theology. Key biblical passages are examined to establish a clear understanding of God’s purpose for Christian marriage. A biblical-practical-motive model of marriage counseling is presented. Marriage illustrations from various cultures help show how the biblical model can be a powerful tool in the pastoral counselor’s hand.
