Title
Cognitive-Behavior Therapy: A Biblical Approach and Critique
Abstract

Cognitive-behavior therapy has gained prominence as a school of psychotherapy or counseling in recent years among secular as well as Christian therapists. This article describes some recent developments and contemporary issues in cognitive-behavior therapy and delineates several limitations and criticisms of cognitive-behavior therapy from both psychological and biblical perspectives. It concludes with some suggestions for a biblical approach to therapy and counseling that is mainly cognitive-behavioral in orientation and practice, but more comprehensive and broad-based than secular cognitive-behavior therapy.
