This past weekend BCEV started a new Phase 1 training series. In this session 1 there was reference to and article that David Powlison had written in a 1999 Journal of Biblical Counseling. The article was titled “X-ray Questions: Drawing Out the Whys and Wherefores of Human Behavior”. In this article 35 X-ray questions are offered to draw out the why and wherefores in a person’s behavior. I am putting a link to the article that can be found in pdf form on the internet.
David Powlison is the author or many excellent books such as Seeing With New Eyes, Speaking Truth in Love: Counsel in Community, The Biblical Counseling Movement, How Does Sanctification Work as well as many other books and mini book. He serves as CCEF’s executive director.
