In this accessible student's guide, an experienced professor examines the study of psychology from a distinctly Christian perspective, introducing readers to key issues such as the origins of morality, nature vs. nurture, the relationship between the mind and brain, and the concept of personal identity.

Whether examining the history of psychological reflection, the legacy of the Enlightenment and Darwinism, or the development of modernist psychology, this volume will help students think carefully about the influential ideas that continue to shape contemporary discussions about what it means to be human.

Endorsements

An insightful account of contemporary psychology and its relation to the Christian faith. Jones helps readers understand where psychology is today and how it got there. He shows how Christians can learn from and contribute to psychology while preserving a critical perspective rooted in biblical faith. A wise and helpful book.
-Stephen Evans,
Professor of Philosophy and Humanities, Baylor University

This insightful, incisive critique of contemporary psychology is only possible because Dr. Jones is so deeply knowledgeable about both Christianity and psychology. As always, his writing is clear, direct, and thought provoking. Reading this book is like taking a guided tour of contemporary issues in psychology, led by one of the finest Christian thinkers of our time.
-Mark McMinn,
Professor of Psychology, George Fox University

Stanton Jones has written a concise yet substantial Christian perspective and critique of the field of psychology, focusing on the key areas of neuroscience, behavior genetics, positive psychology, and the psychology of religion. I highly recommend this very helpful book as essential reading for beginning students in psychology.
-Siang-Yang Tan,
Professor of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary

This book takes you on a wild ride as it surveys topics including genetics, free will, positive psychology, and the psychology of religion within an evangelical Christian framework. Fascinated, I read this in one sitting. It is a wonderful, summative, yet critical introduction to thinking Christianly about psychology.
-Everett Worthington
