Product Description

"Healing you inner child" is common cliche for one of the imperatives of popular psychology: overcoming childhood patterns of relationship and self-understanding in order to become an independent, mature adult. Taking this thinking deeper, Jordan argues that we must examine the dynamics in our families of origin in order to rid our psyches of hurtful assumptions about our spiritual selves and about the nature of God's love for us.

Publisher's Description

Merle Jordan argues that many people spend their adult lives struggling to distinguish between the imperatives of divine authority and the deeply rooted psychological authority of family structures. Employing the wisdom of his experience as a pastoral psychologist as well as the insights of clinical researchers and therapists, Jordan offers ways to demythologize false absolutes and to refocus distorted maps of reality.
