Overview

The first edition of this book pioneered a broader and deeper understanding of psychological theories and practices. Informed by hermeneutical theory, Don Browning's widely acclaimed work drew attention to the ethical and even religious assumptions underlying modern psychology. It has been deeply influential in psychology, pastoral counseling, and practical theology. In this edition Browning and his new co-author show how the field of social science has indeed grasped and appropriated the hermeneutical approach, though with only slight appreciation of the religious dimensions of the social-scientific endeavor. Along with a thorough updating of the discussion, new chapters open a dialogue with psychotherapeutic theorists and evangelical writers on the relation of theology and psychology. This work will set the stage for the religion-psychology conversation for years to come.
