The identity of christian counseling is discussed in terms of interpreting life
story. The life story told by counselee is viewed as the strategic position of
transformation. The subjective theories embodied in the counselee’s life story
are to be correcred by hermeneutic arch of psychological theories. The arch of
psychological interpretation is suggested to provide the tangential point of evangelisation.
At the same time the peril of psychological reductionism is referred
to be prevented by the theological equipments such as pneumatological anthropology.
The reconstruction of life story as one embedded in God’s redemptive
story is emphasized as a crucial test for christian counseling. The redemptive
life story is characterized by its biblical themes and plots.
