Product Description

How might Christian theology and spirituality inform the study and practice of psychology? This book shows how Christian insights into human nature can be integrated with psychological theory and suggests ways that a basic understanding of faith might positively impact the therapeutic process. In the first part of Why Psychology Needs Theology, philosopher and theologian Nancey Murphy explores the core assumptions of psychology and argues that theology and ethics address the same subjects that are of interest to psychology such as the question of what constitutes a life well lived. In the rest of the book other scholars respond to Murphy's argument, exploring relevant connections between psychology and theology and discussing such important topics as gender, culture, and epistemology. This fruitful and stimulating exchange will interest teachers, pastors, professional care providers, and specialist readers.

Publisher's Description

Why Psychology Needs Theology shows how Christian insights into human nature can be integrated with psychological theory and suggests ways that a basic understanding of faith might positively impact the therapeutic process.

In the first part of the book, Nancey Murphy explores the core assumptions of psychology from the vantage point of her expertise in the philosophy of science. Psychology needs theology and ethics, she argues, to help it address the question of what constitutes a good life. Taking an Anabaptist, or Radical-Reformation, perspective that emphasizes Jesus' vulnerable love for his enemies and renunciation of power, Murphy challenges psychology to take seriously the goodness of self-renunciation.

In the second part of the book, other scholars extend and challenge Murphy's model, discussing such topics as gender and culture. All those who work at the intersection of religion and psychology — teachers, pastors, specialists, and professional care providers — will find this exchange fruitful and valuable.

    Somewhat difficult to understand and it wasn't quite what I thought it to be, but it served the purpose for what I needed.
