As disciplines, psychology and theology share an overlapping interest in the nature and functioning of human beings. This book provides an introduction to many of the worldview issues and philosophical foundations that frame the relationship of psychology and theology, includes scholarly reflection on the integration literature, and surveys five paradigms of possible relationships between psychology and Christianity.
The book is designed to help readers become aware of the presuppositional back drops that each of us brings to these issues, and to understand various approaches for relating psychology and Christianity as partly based presuppositional assumptions.
Questions at the end of each chapter are included to help readers evaluate both the material and their own burgeoning approach to integration. This book is an ideal textbook for students of psychology and other behavioral and social sciences (social work, sociology, theology, counseling, pastoral counseling) at both the graduate and undergraduate level. It is also written for the broader readership of psychologists, counselors, pastors, and others who are interested in integration.
