Description

Science and the Soul: Christian Faith and Psychological Research is a series of reflections on how Christian belief relates to contemporary issues in psychological research. Many Christian psychology books are written by practitioners in the field who do not emphasize the importance of grounding claims in theory and research. A smaller number are highly academic volumes of interest to only a very narrow range of Christian academics. This book is designed for educated laity and students of psychology interested in how Christian beliefs relate to findings in psychological research. Each chapter covers an important component of psychological research, followed by at least one response/critique from another scholar.
