Item description for Jesus & Personality Theory: Exploring the Five-Factor Model by James R. Beck...

Overview
In recent years researchers in human personality have come to a rarely achieved near unanimous conclusion: human personality is structured around a very few major traits, probably five in number, namely: openess to experience, conscientiousness, extroversion, agreeableness, and neuroticism. How does this Five-Factor Model fit with a Christian understanding of human nature? How does it compare or contrast with the way Jesus lived, taught and counseled? James Beck looks at prominent themes in the teaching and ministry of Jesus and how they relate to the five personality factors. Here is a study of the Christian implications of the new model - a study that will offer fresh insights for students, pastors and therapists alike.
