Biblical Counseling and Church History

In the latest CCEF podcast David Powlison looks at the roots of biblical counseling and pastoral care in church history--first in Augustine and Gregory the Great, then in the Puritans, and finally in Jonathan Edwards. A very helpful discussion--especially on the issue of whether folks like Owen, Edwards, and others were too morbid in their introspection.

It's about 18 minutes long.
