Item description for Soren Kierkegaard's Christian Psychology: Insight for Counseling & Pastoral Care by C. Stephen Evans...

Evans unfolds the implications and effects of the human desire for wholeness and growth of the self.

Publishers Description
Few writer-philosophers of the past have evoked as much curiosity in the twentieth century than Soren Kierkegaard. The further one probes into his thought the more his ideas prove to have relevance for the modern world and especially to Christians. Such is the case with psychology.

For Kierkegaard, the study of psychology is intrinsically linked with the task of personal becoming, reflecting his own struggle to overcome the dark and cheerless environment of his early life. His interpretive framework os consciously Christian. In his view, humankind was made for relation with God, and this recognition is basic to self-understanding. But in self-deception and rebellion against God, human beings are constantly resisting their own true happiness and fighting against their own best interests.

On this Kierkegaardian premise, C. Stephen Evans unfolds the implications and effects of this human desire for wholeness and growth of the self. This book is written "for psychologists, pastors, counselors, and ordinary people struggling to understand themselves and others".

Reviews - What do customers think about Soren Kierkegaard's Christian Psychology: Insight for Counseling & Pastoral Care?

Great for Christian's wanting an overview  Feb 3, 2007
Many people into Kierkegaard are atheists. Of course, K was not. He might find the use of his works to defend that position interesting to say the least. Much of his work really is the basis for any 'Christian Psychology' with any real depth to it. K is very tough going sometimes for several resons, and many people need an overview before diging into the source material. This author does a great job in explaining K from a religous perspective. Particularly if you are a believer, this is a great place to start. Also the 'Hong' "Esential Kierkegaard" is a great anthology.
