Reviews - What do customers think about Psychology in Christian Perspective: An Analysis of Key Issues?
Pretty good--but be careful Apr 5, 2000
The book was very informative and easy reading. Considering the depth of psychological issues, Faw did a great job. There were some ways in which I thought the author was a little bit too accepting of certain things, such as hypnosis. (He did, to his credit, say that he does not claim to be right on everything, but is merely suggesting possibilities to be considered.) Although I disagree with him in some areas, I appreciate Faw's willingness to put aside prejudices and look objectively at the issues. I definitely do not recommend this book for anyone who believes things because they read them and doesn't think for themself. However, if you can think for yourself, this book will give you some great things to think about.
