In this episode of Help Me Teach the Bible, I sat down with Ed Welch, counselor and faculty member at the Christian Counseling and Educational Foundation (CCEF). With a Ph.D. in counseling (neuropsychology) from the University of Utah and a master of divinity degree from Biblical Theological Seminary, Welch has been counseling for more than 30 years.
In this conversation, Welch demonstrates how to present the Scriptures in a way that leads people who are seeking strategies or techniques for dealing with sins and problems to see that what they need most is a person, Jesus Christ. While admitting that applying Scripture to problems is hard work, Welch invites Bible teachers to move from teacher to friend by getting to know those we’re teaching enough to be affected by them.


Books by Ed Welch include:

Is the digital age making us foolish?

Do you feel yourself becoming more foolish the more time you spend scrolling on social media? You’re not alone. Addictive algorithms make huge money for Silicon Valley, but they make huge fools of us.

It doesn’t have to be this way. With intentionality and the discipline to cultivate healthier media consumption habits, we can resist the foolishness of the age and instead become wise and spiritually mature. Brett McCracken’s The Wisdom Pyramid: Feeding Your Soul in a Post-Truth World shows us the way.
