Problems--they're everywhere! It seems like you run into them at every turn, like life is made up of nothing but problems!
What do you do when problems build up and you are beset by them on every side? Is it time to give up? Hide? Run away from problems for the rest of your life?
Here Jay Adams addresses the problems we all face and assures us that there's no need to run--we can learn to master our problems instead. In fact, children of God should fear problems the least, because we are equipped to handle them the best. We have the example of God, who solved the problem of reconciling sinners to him, and in him are the solutions to all of our problems.
The Resources for Biblical Living booklet series addresses a wide range of practical life issues in a straightforward, down-to-earth, and most of all, biblical manner.
“In his booklet, Problems: Solving them God’s Way, Jay Adams provides biblical, practical and straightforward guidance. You would expect nothing less from Jay! He helps you distinguish and navigate problems that you bring upon yourself as well as those that are brought upon you. He grounds the Christian’s ability to solve problems in the God who solves our problems of sin and suffering through the life, death, and resurrection of Christ and the giving of the Holy Spirit. From there, he maps out a strategy for using the means of grace (the Bible, prayer, and other believers) to find a clear path to change.” --Dr. Tim S. Lane, Executive Director, CCEF (Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation)
Jay E. Adams
For over 40 years Dr. Jay Adams has been calling God’s people back from their dalliance with unbiblical psychological theory to a renewed confidence in the power of the Holy Spirit and the sufficiency of God’s Word to equip the man of God to help his people with problems of living and relationship. Happily, many have heeded his call and over the years a movement, both deep and wide, has developed, consisting of pastors and other Christian workers who have been trained in and are practicing the kind of truly biblical counseling God intended for His people to receive. Jay Edward Adams was born in Baltimore on January 30, 1929 and was born again about 15 years later in response to the reading of a New Testament that was given to him by a friend. He received his formal training at Reformed Episcopal Seminary (B.D.), Johns Hopkins University (A.B.), Pittsburgh-Xenia Seminary, Temple University School of Theology (M.ST.), and the University of Missouri (Ph.D.). He pastored churches in Pennsylvania and New Jersey, served as a denominational official, a professor at Westminster Theological Seminary, the director of the Doctoral program at Westminster Theological Seminary in California, and then as a church planting pastor in South Carolina. He was also the founder of the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation in Philadelphia, the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, and Timeless Texts which now publishes his books. In 1999 Dr. Adams retired from the pastorate of the church he had planted in South Carolina and has devoted his time to writing and lecturing. In the fall of 2001 the Redeemer Biblical Counseling Training Institute (RBCTI) was established at the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in Moore, SC to provide a vehicle by which Dr. Adams could continue teaching.
