Product Description

An expert in moral and philosophical psychology, Robert C. Roberts here develops an original, up-to-date understanding of human emotions in relation to spirituality and as a basic part of Christian moral character. With an eye on pertinent biblical texts, Roberts explores emotions as nonsensory perceptions that arise from personal caring and concern. His study culminates with an in-depth examination of six "fruits of the Holy Spirit" emotion-virtues: contrition, joy, gratitude, hope, peace, and compassion.

Though Spiritual Emotions is rigorous in its focus on the inner structure of Christian character, it is nonetheless readable and is laced with many narrative examples. The book will be immensely useful for Christian ethicists, psychologists, pastors, and counselors.

Robert C. Roberts is Distinguished Professor of Ethics at Baylor University, Waco, Texas. Among his other books are Taking the Word to Heart: Self and Others in an Age of Therapies and (with Jay Wood) Intellectual Virtues: An Essay in Regulative Epistemology.

Editorial Reviews

Gordon T. Smith
— President, reSource Leadership International
"Roberts has provided us with something urgently needed: critical thinking about the complex matter of the emotions. He brings together insights from philosophy, psychology, and literature that complement the needed theological analysis of the place of emotion in human — and thus Christian — experience. This work provides invaluable insight and guidance for church leaders, including preachers and those who direct worship, parents, educators, and all who are concerned with human formation."
