A new analysis of human nature and behavior in biblical perspective by two evangelical experts. This comprehensive textbook discusses four key aspects of the human person by exploring the relationship between origin and destiny, substance and identity, function and behavior, and relationships and community. The authors argue that an integrated approach of theology and psychology not only enhances our understanding of what it means to be human, but is also key to that understanding.

Jocelyn Bryan provides a psychological perspective on key aspects of human nature and behaviour drawing on recent research and reflect on the issues this raises for theology and ministry. The aim is to introduce theology students, those studying practical theology and those engaged in ministerial formation or ministry to the significant current research in psychology which will deepen understanding of some of the core aspects of human nature. The interdisciplinary nature of the exercise aims to model the benefits of such an approach for both theology and ministerial practice and as such the book aims to cross traditional boundaries. The objective is to introduce the reader to new fields of academic psychology beyond those of counselling and psychoanalysis, dated personality psychology and the popular psychology which is often referred to in publications in the area of ministerial practice and enable the reader to engage with recent psychological research and developments.

This volume brings together leading theologians, biblical scholars, scientists, philosophers, ethicists, and others to explore the multidimensionality and depth of the human person. Moving away from dualistic (mind-body, spirit-flesh, naturalmental) anthropologies, the book's contributors examine human personhood in terms of a complex flesh-body-mind-heart-soul-conscience-reason-spirit spectrum. The Depth of the Human Person begins with a provocative essay on the question "Why is personhood conceptually difficult?" It then rises to the challenge of relating theological contributions on the subject to various scientific explorations. Finally, the book turns to contemporary theological-ethical challenges, discussing such subjects as human dignity, embodiment, gender stereotypes, and human personhood at the edges of life.

An interdisciplinary look at arguments both for and against traditional belief in the soul It is a widely held belief that human beings are both body and soul, that our immaterial soul is distinct from our material body. But that traditional idea has been seriously questioned by much recent research in the brain sciences. In Neuroscience and the Soul fourteen distinguished scholars grapple with current debates about the existence and nature of the soul. Featuring a dialogical format, the book presents state-of-the-art work by leading philosophers and theologians—some arguing for the existence of the soul, others arguing against it—and then puts those scholars into conversation with critics of their views. Bringing philosophy, theology, and science together in this way brings to light new perspectives and advances the ongoing debate over body and soul. CONTRIBUTORS: Robin Collins John W.

A Catholic Christian Meta-Model of the Person integrates the insights of three wisdom traditions--the psychological sciences, philosophy, and theology--to provide a framework for understanding the person. The Meta-Model develops a more systematic, integrative, and non-reductionist vision of the person, marriage, family, and society than is found in any of these three disciplines alone. The Meta-Model is a unifying framework for the integration of already-existing personality theories and therapeutic models. In addition, it enhances assessment, diagnosis, case conceptualization, and treatment planning by addressing eleven essential dimensions of the person needed in mental health practice aimed at healing and flourishing. The book also explores how the Meta-Model framework can improve client care. Finally, it demonstrates how the Meta-Model assists mental health professionals to better understand how they can be faithful to their Christian identity as they serve all clients--Christians, persons from other faiths, and non-believers.

Three essays reflect the exploratory nature of Religion and Personality -- a field still in its infancy in divinity studies. Each of the eleven authors applies the insights of psychology, both theoretical and clinical, to important elements of Christian thought and religious meaning. New light is shed on such central concepts as faith, guilt and salvation. The relation between belief and myth is defined, and the old controversy about demythologization receives fresh impetus.

This work begins with a discussion of problems of method and then surveys a number of areas of psychological researchto reach an initial idea of the psychological resources and liabilities which people typically have. There follows an organized outline of the ways in which such resources or liabilities may come to expression on each of the four levels of the subject's operations, as these are analysed Bernard Lonergan: experience, understanding, judgement, and decision. Then an analysis of the tension between human desire and human limitation provides a broader context within which the significance of temptation and conversion are examined. A clarification of the significance of specifically religious and Christian in moral theology is attempted. Finally, some implications on a more pratical level are explored.

Nineteen scholars assess contemporary fundamental theology. To locate and define their field, a team of international experts address four kinds of problems: 1) problems of identity and method -- the natural of fundamental theology -- in historical and in systematic perspective; 2) questions of hermeneutics; 3) Christological approaches; 4) problems of ecclesiology. No other work in any language provides such an extensive, in-depth account of the tasks and future possibilities for fundamental theology. It is an indispensable aid for understanding the revolutionary development which this discipline has undergone before, during and after the Second Vatican Council.

The Ethical Demand (1956) by K. E. L�gstrup is one of the great works of modern moral philosophy: it is presented here in a new translation with introduction and notes. L�gstrup puts forward his distinctive view concerning our vulnerability to each other and what this requires of us in response. He starts by considering Jesus's 'proclamation' to love your neighbour and how this can be understood in 'purely human terms' as relating to basic features of our existence. Reflecting on the phenomenon of trust, L�gstrup emphasizes the fundamental interdependence of human life and how this gives rise to an 'ethical demand' on us to care for the other, which he characterizes as radical, silent, one-sided, and unfulfillable. In order to make sense of a demand of this sort, L�gstrup argues, we must see 'life as a gift', rather than treating ourselves as the sovereign grounds for our own existence. He contrasts this demand to social norms, which are often reciprocal in this way, and argues that while such norms are changeable, the ethical demand itself is absolute. L�gstrup therefore makes a fundamental contribution to our understanding of the nature of-and basis for-our obligations to each other. In this critical edition, L�gstrup's original text is accurately rendered into readable English and paired with an introduction which explains the main themes and wider context of the work.
