Counsel One Another


(by Paul Tautges)

Today, churches are increasingly placing their confidence in Christian psychology as the answer to their need for the ministry of counseling. But counseling is not primarily the work of the professional: it is a crucial way for believers in Christ to demonstrate biblical love toward one another within a gospel-centered, truth-driven, and grace-dispensing church environment. That is the main point of this book.

Solidly rooted in the belief that the Scriptures are sufficient for every soul-related struggle in life, and totally committed to the truth that the Holy Spirit is competent to accomplish the work of sanctification, this paradigm-shifting book will challenge every believer.

In his companion work, Counsel Your Flock, Paul concentrated on the role that teaching shepherds have in leading God’s people to spiritual maturity by faithfully equipping them for effective ministry. Here he biblically presents, and thoroughly defends, every believer’s responsibility to work toward God’s goal to conform us to the image of His Son—a goal that will not be reached apart from a targeted form of discipleship, most often referred to as “counseling.”

About the author:
Dr. Paul Tautges has served Immanuel Bible Church in Sheboygan, Wisconsin as pastor-teacher since 1992. His preaching and teaching ministry takes him overseas for the equipping of national pastors for the work of church-based ministry. He is also the author of Delight in the WORD: Biblical Counsel for Everyday Issues and is a biblical counselor certified with the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors (NANC) and the International Association of Biblical Counselors (IABC). Paul and his wife Karen have ten children.

This book gets it right! Comprehensive and convincing, Counsel One Another shows how true biblical counseling and preaching fit hand-in-glove. Those who preach, teach, or counsel regularly are sure to benefit greatly from this helpful resource.
—John MacArthur

The ministry of counseling has far too long been relegated to the professional counselor. Paul Tautges in his book Counsel One Another brings the biblical command for discipleship right back to the local church and to all believers. He takes the word counseling, a word often perceived as only for professionals, a threatening word to the average church layman as a job they dare not do, and helps to reduce that fear and encourages them to fulfill their responsibility by uniquely redefining it biblically as intensely focused and personal discipleship. Rather than send people who are struggling spiritually, socially and emotionally to a limited group of professionals, Tautges makes the case theologically that the responsibility for all church members is to disciple one another and to restore hurting people. He makes it clear that it is not just the pastors that are responsible to counsel, but also a “one another” ministry for all who claim the name of Christ. This is a must read for every pastor and layman who take Matthew 28 and discipleship in the local church seriously, as Christ commanded.
—Dr. Ron Allchin, director of the Biblical Counseling Center near Chicago

Paul Tautges’ book is readable, accessible, practical and biblical. More than just a handbook for Christian counsellors, Counsel one another encourages and enables the Church to address the need for biblical discipleship. Loaded with information and application this is an excellent workbook for all Christians who are seeking to grow in grace and take their rightful place in the body of Christ
—Dr Jim Winter

A gathering storm surrounds the day in which we live, a dark hour in which the absolute sufficiency of the Scripture has come under attack. But how refreshing--and rare--to see a book like this that asserts the irresistible power of God's Word to develop true discipleship by the sovereign working of His Spirit. This is not a 'trendy book' like so many, blown about by the prevailing evangelical winds. Rather, here is an anchor for authentic ministry that will stimulate real spiritual growth in God's people. May the Lord set an open door before this book and use it to affect the lives of many.
—Dr. Steven J. Lawson, Senior Pastor, Christ Fellowship Baptist Church, Mobile, Alabama

Like their pastors, most Christians have adopted a professionalized or psychologized view of counseling that naturally excludes uneducated laity. This is why I believe this book, Counsel one another, addresses a serious deficiency in the discipleship ministry of Christians within the church. It advocates a radical departure from the status quo and a return to an authentic personal ministry of the Word among Christians through discipleship-counseling. It effectively lays the theological foundation for Christians regaining the New Testament priority of addressing personal soul troubles with biblical counsel.
—Dr. John D. Street, Chair, Graduate Program in Biblical Counseling, The Master’s College and Seminary, Santa Clarita, California
