Gospel Treason (Book)

COVER_Gospel Treason

Gospel Treason by Pastor Brad Bigney (book)

Using real-life stories and examples, I show how idols that we might not even recognize can still have devastating effects in our lives. I’ll help you to identify idols and understand how they lead you to commit treason against the Gospel. Finally, I’ll show you how to repent of them by turning to the only One who can fill our every need. If you’ve been stuck in the Christian life and wondering what’s missing, this just might be the understanding you need.

Biblical Counseling and the Church (Book)

Biblical-Counseling-and-the-ChurchBiblical Counseling and the Church: God’s Care Through God’s People written by over 20 different authors, including Brad Bigney

Brad co-authored chapters 1 and 5. Chapter 1 describes how to create a church of biblical counseling and transformation rather than viewing the biblical counseling ministry as an ‘add-on’ to the fringe of ministry. Chapter 5 describes how the small group and counseling ministry work together to keep the church focused on transformation rather than information. This is a resource in the line of books being published by the Biblical Counseling Coalition. This book is geared specifically towards church leaders who want to know how they can develop a biblical counseling ministry in their church regardless of the size of the church.
