Product Description

How did the first-century followers of Jesus interpret their encounters with God, Christ, demons, and their own desires? Moving away from the introspective theories of Freud and Jung, Berger mines New Testament passages to show that early believers understood their behaviors and experiences in context of communion with God and others. 298 pages, softcover from Fortress.

Publisher's Description

How do the New Testament documents present issues of passion, will, identity, and perception? How did the earliest followers of Jesus understand their experiences, behaviors, and suffering? These questions and more are addressed in this stimulating work by one of the most productive Continental New Testament scholars. Rather than approaching the New Testament with a Freudian, Jungian, or other modern psychological theory, Berger illuminates historically how peoples of the first century described their human experiences in relation to their encounters with God, Christ, demons, and the power of their own desires and will.
