Publisher's Description

First Christians feared and avoided the modern practice of psychotherapy. Then many uncritically embraced it. This book represents an emerging third stage in the complicated relationship between faith and psychology. That stage is the critical, theologically informed appropriation of psychotherapy. Stanton Jones and Richard Butman, respected Christian scholars and experienced clinical psychologists, survey the thirteen most significant psychotherapies now in use. They fair-mindedly introduce each therapy and evaluate its compatibility with orthodox Christianity. Opening and closing chapters discuss foundational concerns on the intergration of psychology and theology, and present the author's justification of "responsible eclecticism." Among the first of its kind, this comprehensive volume will be of invaluable assistance to teachers, students of psychology, and Christian psychologists and counselors.

Editorial Reviews

"The thinking is keen, the writing is clear, and the communication is superb. This is a work that truly integrates psychology and theology."
"For any Christian student considering a career as a counselor, this book should be high on the list of required reading. For any teacher of a course related to counseling or therapy, this text should be a strong candidate."
" [Modern Psychotherapies] has an important place in courses on integration and psychotherapy."
"Jones and Butman demonstrate a respect for contemporary nonreligious scholarship on personality and therapy. . . . The book's bibliography and careful integration of [both Christian and non-Christian theorists] make it a valuable introduction for students of psychology-theology integration."
