Buchanan believes that we can learn many principles of counseling from the life and works of Jesus. Essentially, he says that Jesus did not use any particular style, but that He simply uses His own style to direct people, or should I say help people, to live in the glory of God. "There is no neat answers, no formulas, only the wonder of people going out in the power of Jesus" (p. 156).

It is very rare to find a book written explicitly about the counseling theory and techniques of Jesus. After all, He is our model. Buchanan calls Him "the greatest psychiatrist of our time."

There is no shortage of books, however, that read into Jesus the theory and techniques of their own persuasion. Christians are forever quoting Jesus to support themselves. Sometimes Jesus is a psychoanalyst, sometimes a Rogerian, sometimes a Jay Haley, sometimes Gestalt, and sometimes a behaviorist. There are those, however, who say that Jesus cannot fit into such categories. And there are those who contend that Jesus really isn't a model counselor at all. After all, is Jesus the model businessman, the model carpenter, the model physician, the model policeman, the model airline pilot, or the model car mechanic, and so forth? As the greatest psychiatrist, did Jesus prescribe drugs, diagnose according to the DSM III, do long term therapy, or many of the other things a psychiatrist does? No.

Buchanan believes that we can learn many principles of counseling from the life and works of Jesus. Essentially, he says that Jesus did not use any particular style, but that He simply uses His own style to direct people, or should I say help people, to live in the glory of God. "There is no neat answers, no formulas, only the wonder of people going out in the power of Jesus" (p. 156).

So what new insights does Buchanan bring to the nature of counseling from Jesus' perspective? None really. The book repeats the same old truisms about counseling, and in a very general way. And Buchanan's writing, while easy to read, does not really describe these truisms in a novel manner. The book is actually kind of boring. He repeats the well known and rehashed criticisms of Jay Adams and constructs his own style on the necessity of building a person's self-acceptance in order to stimulate growth in Christ. In fact, it is the lack of self-acceptance, identity, self-esteem, and such that is at the root of all the emotional problems of life: fear, anxiety, anger, and even, according to the author, a problem like insomnia. We need to love ourselves, then love others, and then are able to love God. This really isn't any different from most other contemporary Christian books which make the lack of self-esteem the heart of the human problem. Whether one agrees with this diagnosis or not (I personally think of it as the Christian heresy, a reversal of Christian truth), Buchanan does one of the worst jobs supporting it. His eisegesis is simply atrocious at several points.

Buchanan does offer some insights, however, into the relationship between love and judgment. Rather than saying that they are opposite attributes of God, he contends that they are joined fully together in the nature of Christ. Judgment is integral to love; the love of God expressing God's holiness. Thus, although his treatment of this idea is very short, he has laid the groundwork for a type of counseling that is both confrontational and confessional, unifying both repentance and forgiveness, directive and nondirective counseling.
