"When our gaze awakens to the gaze of God, we have started to see. Seeing clearly, we can love well."

Seeing with New Eyes is a collection of essays by noted CCEF counselor and apologist David Powlison, editor of The Journal of Biblical Counseling. Through Bible exposition, topical essay, editorial and sermon, the book explores two main topics:

  • Scripture: In his Word, God speaks into real life to help us understand him and his intentions. How do we embrace Scripture to hear him at that level?
  • People: How can this deeper understanding of Scripture help us understand—and help—people (including ourselves) amid the problems of daily life?

Seeing with New Eyes shows us how to look at many common struggles through the lens of Scripture, including:

  • Worry
  • Victimization
  • "Love languages"
  • The new biomedical approach to personal struggles

Powlison encourages readers to "think Christianly" about such things by learning to think God's thoughts after him. "Does God have a take on counseling?" he asks. "Of course, yes, amen." This book will help you to listen, look, and think wisely—and with renewed hope—following the patterns of God's gaze.
