This course will be a look at Biblical counseling through the Self Confrontation handbook. The Self-Confrontation manual is a 24-lesson reference, designed to direct you back to the Bible for daily living. Useful for personal growth and discipleship, Self-Confrontation will help you learn how the Bible is sufficient and applicable to produce lasting victory in every circumstance and relationship, no matter how difficult.

In Matthew 7:3-5 God says to not focus on the “speck that is in your brother’s eye” but to “first take the log out of your own eye and then you will see clearly to take the speck out of your brother’s eye.” The Self-Confrontation course is a study of this and many other life-changing biblical principles. You will find the study to be challenging and also full of encouragement and hope for living victoriously in the power of the Holy Spirit, even through the most difficult trials of life. You can watch a short video about the course and materials (Self-Confrontation Manual and Student Workbook)
