Reviews - What do customers think about Psychology Through the Eyes of Faith?

Jean-Jacques D'Aoust, Ph.D. recommends  Jan 11, 2007
David Myers is well known for publishing some of the best college manuals for general psychology, that are used in a majority of colleges and universities. He is also a devoted Christian. Consequently, his recent book on Psychology Through the Eyes of Faith marks a testimony to his dual commitment to both scientific psychology and the orthodox Christian faith. Highly recommended.
Psychology for the Christian? Not Really.  Dec 20, 2003
This book sets out to present psychology through the eyes of faith. However, I found the book dissappointing. In fact, it quite uncritically accepts a rather steep picture of human nature from social and cognitive psychology and then goes on to pepper them up with a few bible quotes. Even free will is challenged. Now, that would be legitimate, but interestingly enough, even in mainstream psychology many of the findings Myers offers as the last truth are challenged (e.g. compare David Funder's research and Myer's stand on the bias-and-heuristics-programme). All in all, I wouldn't recommend this book. It is short, uninteresting and its title offers more than the book offers.
Overall Uses  Mar 5, 2000
I originally bought this as a textbook for my Psychology of Religion class at Wayland Baptist University. I recommended as a fair view of Psychology for a religious or faith perspective. BE careful that you copy as all pages. 131-159 was missing out of mine 51-80 replaced it.
Overall uses  Mar 5, 2000
My first copy of this, I bought as a textbook for my Psychology of REligion course At Wayland Baptist University. This is a good book for a unbiased view of Psychology from a religious or faith perspective. Be careful to buy one that has all the pages my original goes 1-130, inserts a previous section of 51-82, and finishes from 160 to the end of the book. Overall, it is a responsible text.
