Can biblical teaching be combined with worldly wisdom?
In this book, Dr Owen Ashley claims that since the Bible references other courses as being useful, then, yes, Christians can use wisdom from outside the Bible – as long as that wisdom does not contradict Scripture. Owen examines important issues in understanding human nature and how to help people with challenges they face. Each chapter contains a model for understanding aspects of human nature, and considers where our knowledge comes from.
This book is adapted from Dr Ashley’s PhD, originally published as A Theological and Practical Evaluation of CWR’s Waverley Christian Counselling Model.
