Psychology in the Spirit
John H. Coe and Todd W. Hall tackle these and other provocative questions in this next volume of the Christian Worldview Integration Series which offers an introduction to a new approach to psychology that seeks to integrate psychology and spiritual formation. This model "represents a spiritual formation and relational approach to psychology for the sake of servicing the spiritual needs of the church." Their goal is to provide a unique model of doing psychology and science in the Spirit.
Here you will find an introduction to the foundations, methodology, content and praxis for this new approach to soulcare.
"I am so grateful that John Coe and Todd Hall collaborated on this project. The result is an important contribution to applied integration. Coe and Hall offer a compelling case for a transformative psychology that is both conceptually rich and clinically accessible. I will recommend this book in courses on integration."
"An important extension of the conversation on the integration of psychology and theology and is a welcome addition to the literature. . . A text that needs to be read not only by those studying psychology but also anyone doing advanced studies and research in the field of practical theology."
