Product Description

Many Christian therapists emphasize sin at the expense of grace---or vice versa. George Fox University professor of psychology Mark R.McMinn believes there's a place for both in the counseling process. After examining each element separately he discusses them together, then devotes particular attention to the functional, structural, and relational domains. Pastors, counselors, and students will welcome this companion to Integrative Psychotherapy.

Publisher's Description

Sin. Grace. Christian Counseling. How do these fit together? In Christian theology sin and grace are intrinsically interconnected. Teacher and counselor Mark McMinn believes that Christian counseling, then, must also take account of both human sin and God's grace. For both sin and grace are distorted whenever one is emphasized without the other. McMinn, noting his own tendencies and the temptation to stereotype different Christian approaches to counseling along this theological divide, aims to help all those preparing for or currently serving in the helping professions. Expounding the proper relationship of sin and grace, McMinn shows how the full truth of the Christian gospel works itself out in the functional, structural and relational domains of an integrative model of psychotherapy.

Christian Association for Psychological Studies (CAPS) Books explore how Christianity relates to mental health and behavioral sciences including psychology, counseling, social work, and marriage and family therapy in order to equip Christian clinicians to support the well-being of their clients.
