Praise for the Lifeline Mini-Book Series
I love the LifeLine mini-books! You can trust these resources to provide accessible, practical, and Bible-saturated help with many of the most common and perplexing problems found in our fallen world.
Dr. Heath Lambert, First Baptist Church, Jacksonville, FL, Executive Director the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC)
Many Christian counselors are seeking helpful material that is faithful to the Scriptures. The LifeLine mini-book series is an invaluable tool in their counseling tool kit because it will genuinely help struggling Christians with practical answers that are true to the sufficient Word of God.

Paul Tautges is a leader in the biblical counseling world who is fast becoming one of the major names, not only in biblical counseling but in pastoral ministry. His Counseling One Another blog and his blog posts and book lists at the Biblical Counseling Coalition (BCC) are much sought-after resources. I highly recommend Dr. Tautges and these mini-books. The series provide the unique combination of biblical truth succinctly related to specific real-life issues. They are on the cutting edge of what the Evangelical church needs today to advance God’s work in our broken world.
Dr. Bob Kellemen, Chair of the Biblical Counseling and Discipleship Department, Crossroads Bible College
I wholeheartedly recommend this series of mini-books. They explain the very real problems that people face in life from a solidly biblical perspective. (a) They describe these problems experientially by using true stories and illustrations. (b) They present the biblical solution to these problems, making it clear how God wants to solve them by changing the heart of the people involved. These mini-books accomplish this through the Word-based, Gospel-driven applications to life and by encouraging people to make the changes that will enable them to walk in faith and obedience to Christ. (c) I use these mini-books as homework for my counselees and recommend them to my students.

I know of nothing like the LifeLine mini-books. Few accessible writings possess such a careful balance of meaty truth and practicality. These little books address so many neglected topics with a biblical faithfulness and practical tenacity that pastors are longing to have as helpful companions in their ministries. I use many of them regularly in my local church and wait with anticipation on what needed topic will be addressed in the series next. All pastors, counselor, and leaders in the local church will be helped by keeping these little gems close by as you labor to care for the unique fallen struggles of Christ’s redeemed people.
Brian Croft, Pastor, Auburndale Baptist Church and Founder of Practical Shepherding
These mini-books are great resources that help with the small adjustments required for change. Theologically-deep and careful in application, this series seeks to show how dependence upon the work of Christ relates to a multitude of specific troubles.
Dr. Jeremy Pierre, Assistant Professor of Practical Theology and Biblical Counseling, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and Pastor of Member Care at Clifton Baptist Church
I encourage Christians to read the HELP series of mini-books for two primary reasons. First, they address each issue from a biblical, seeking-to-please God perspective presented in an easy-to-read style. Second, once a person has read one of the mini-books, usually it is immediately added to his ministry toolbox and used to help someone else. These are great resources, especially for biblical counselors.
Randy Patten, Director of Training & Advancement, Association of Certified Biblical Counselors (ACBC)
These books demonstrate that biblical counsel can be made simple without becoming shallow. There is real meat here: robust analysis, honest assessment, rich gospel application and practical steps, all delivered in tidy mini-books that will not be overwhelming to God’s people.
Tedd Tripp, Author, Director of Shepherd Press
These little books are directly targeted to the issues that we all face and they hit the bulls-eye. They are faithful to Scripture and they demonstrate insight into its application. Churches need to make these available for their congregations.
John MacArthur, Pastor-Teacher, Grace Community Church, President, The Master’s University and Seminary
