Promotional Information

"All too often in the past attempts to address the relationship between psychology and theology have fallen short of their promise. In 'Human Being', Jocelyn Bryan shows what can happen when the subject is approached by someone who has studied psychology extensively and engages with theology professionally. The summaries of theoretical positions and empirical results are deft, the theological and biblical connections convincing, and the overall approach is both fresh and true to its subject matter. This is an inspiring and extremely useful book that brings much-needed clarity and theological imagination to bear on a wide range of personal and pastoral issues." -- Stephen Cherry
