A Word from Bob 

Soon, I’ll be posting my 10th Annual List of Top Biblical Counseling Books of the Year. Since this is 2021, in that upcoming RPM Ministries post, I’ll include 21 Top Biblical Counseling Books of 2021.

But there were more than 21 biblical counseling books published in 2021—at least 62. And every book is excellent and deserving in it’s own right of being noted as a “top book.” So, here are all the biblical counseling books I’ve found that were published in 2021. I’m listing them alphabetically by author, then with a direct link to the book embedded in the title, then with the publisher, and with the number of pages. If you know of biblical counseling books written this year that I’ve not listed, please let me know so I can add them to this list.

Note: For direct links to over 1,000 biblical counseling books, see The Annual Guide to Biblical Counseling Resources: 2021 Edition. The Annual Guide provides annotated summaries of every book, and collates each book with an easy-to-use topical index.
