Product Description

In this deep and enlightening discussion, psychologist and theologian James E. Loder demonstrates how a theological perspective enlarges our understanding of how humans grow and develop from birth to healthy adulthood. Loder examines the intimate relationship between the human and the divine and provides moving case studies, bringing the work of psychologists Freud, Erikson, and Piaget to that of seminal Christian theologians Kierkegaard, Barth, and Pannenberg. Loder acknowledges that psychological stage theories enable us to understand the logic of humans' evolving relationship with the world and with God. At the same time, he demonstrates that the divine spirit has a logic of its own, which is not bound by stages, and which reveals patterns of ultimate significance in the transient, fleeting moments we call a human lifetime.

Editorial Reviews

"A truly wonderful book. Loder brings together-in a very illuminating and profound way-the bearing of the Holy Spirit upon the human spirit. I hope that every seminary will make this book an absolute must for all students." (Thomas F. Torrance, emeritus professor of Christian dogmatics, University of Edinburgh, Scotland)
"James Loder combines an uncommon intelligence with the compassion of an extraordinary therapist. Those . . . prepared to grapple with science, social science, and Christian theology, will find [this book] important, thought-provoking, and rewarding." (Sharon Daloz Parks, Whidbey Institute, co-author, Common Fire: Leading Lives of Commitment in a Complex World)
"A masterful interdisciplinary work. . . an insightful and engaging contribution for reflective practitioners in . . . fields concerned with formation and transformation, such as Christian education, counseling, mentoring, youth ministry, and spiritual direction." (Daniel S. Schipani, Associated Mennonite Biblical Seminary)
"In a profound and unique synthesis of postmodern science and theology, Jim Loder shows how the creative power of the human spirit can reconstruct and transform the self, once the human spirit discovers the true ?ground' in the Holy Spirit." (John S. McClure, professor of homiletics, Louisville Presbyterian Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky)

    Overlaying the psychological and spiritual aspects of development is profoundly helpful in understanding the human condition and the challenging work of being conformed to the image of Christ.
