Drs. Jay Adams and Donn Arms are pleased to present this blog for the Institute of Nouthetic Studies. The Institute for Nouthetic Studies exists to train counselors to effectively minister the Word of God in the counseling room. They do so by providing a comprehensive curriculum which can be studied by extension — without traveling to a campus. All courses are presented on DVD which the student studies at his own pace in his own home. INS features the teaching ministry of Dr. Jay E. Adams, the pioneer and leading authority on truly biblical counseling.
