Product Description

As the cynicism of empiricism and rationalism give way to pluralistic post-modern society, the cultural stage has been set for a reintroduction of the soul. Christians, theologians and psychologists particularly, should welcome this development as a platform to begin discussing and formulating a theo-psychological understanding of the human self. Care for the Soul is a significant step in this direction. Achieving a unified and well constructed unification of psychology and theology, authors from both disciplines discuss how the two disciplines can work together, how to overcome Christian "acquiescence" to the secular presuppositions that hinder an interdisciplinary approach, and how to develop a sound psychology within the context of a sound theological anthropology. The result in Care for the Soulare promising steps towards providing people with indispensable tools for engaging mental health using Christian belief and theology. A much welcomed contribution, and highly recommended.

Publisher's Description

"This volume explores the intersection of psychology and theology, but it is not a simple intersection. It is an intersection affected by rich theological and ecclesiological traditions, by the ravages and wonders of modern psychology, and by the character and qualities of today's ministers and communities of faith." (from the introduction) For two millennia Christians have been caring for souls. Since the Enlightenment, though, the Christian concept of the soul has been usurped by modern and postmodern notions of the self. "Somehow we misplaced the soul even as we developed a thriving science of the psyche," lament the editors of this volume. Thus there is a clash between Western therapeutic culture and the church's understanding of the soul's nature and its care. As a result, some Christians deride psychology as dangerous. Others believe that it has much to offer Christians interested in caring for the soul. What is the proper relationship between psychology and theology? Is soul care the shared task of these two fields? This collection of essays is a multidisciplinary dialogue on the interface between psychology and theology that takes seriously the long, rich tradition of soul care in the church. In this volume you'll find incisive discussions of
  • the current state of theology and psychology
  • overcoming the acquiescence to secularism
  • theological resources for developing Christian psychology
  • taking theology to heart in psychology
  • taking psychology to heart in theology and Christian life
Contributors include Jeffry H. Boyd, Ellen T. Charry, Deborah van Deusen Hunsinger, L. Gregory Jones, Stanton L. Jones, Cynthia Neal Kimball, Bryan N. Maier, Michael Mangis, Philip G.
