Item description for Limning the Psyche: Explorations in Christian Psychology by Robert Campbell Roberts & Mark R. Talbot...

Americans tend to turn to psychology when they want to understand themselves. Today, contemporary psychology presents itself as a science, which can and ought to function independently of theology: it emphasizes individual fulfillment and sometimes suggests that we are little more than the sum total of our genes and our environment. Christians, who believe themselves to be called to develop virtues such as love, humility, faith, perseverance, and who are called to find their fulfillment in a community devoted to the love of God and service in his kingdom, may wonder whether this turning to psychology is a good thing. In Limning the Psyche, fifteen respected psychologists, theologians, and philosophers look at the practice of psychology from a Christian perspective and discuss the parameters of a distinctly Christian psychology and explore the psychological implications of the Christian view of human nature. Contributors: Diogenes Allen Paul Griffiths A. Howsepian Eric Johnson Stanton Jones Jean-Marc Laporte James Martin Cynthia Jones Neal Dennis Okholm Cornelius Plantinga, Jr. L. Rebecca Propst Robert C. Roberts Walter Sundberg Mark Talbot Paul Vitz

Reviews - What do customers think about Limning the Psyche?

Academic insights need experiential insights for balance.  Sep 4, 1999
There is an over reliance on academic insights. The Christian scriptures are explicit concerning the limitations of rational thought. Rational inquiry into the ways of the Almighty always ends with a gaping question mark! This open question can only be bridged by personal experience which produces a personal knowing without the need to comprehend. This quote from Carl Jung makes my point : "I cound not say I believe. I know! I had the experience of being gripped by something that is stronger than myself, something, that people call God." While calling upon the sights of a multiplicity of sources, why did the authors neglect insights from two very well known Christian psychologists/priests: Morton Kelsey and John A. Sanford?
