"This volume explores the intersection of psychology and theology, but it is not a simple intersection. It is an intersection affected by rich theological and ecclesiological traditions, by the ravages and wonders of modern psychology, and by the character and qualities of today's ministers and communities of faith." (from the introduction)For two millennia Christians have been caring for souls. Since the Enlightenment, though, the Christian concept of the soul has been usurped by modern and postmodern notions of the self. "Somehow we misplaced the soul even as we developed a thriving science of the psyche," lament the editors of this volume. Thus there is a clash between Western therapeutic culture and the church's understanding of the soul's nature and its care.As a result, some Christians deride psychology as dangerous. Others believe that it has much to offer Christians interested in caring for the soul. What is the proper relationship between psychology and theology? Is soul care the shared task of these two fields? This collection of essays is a multidisciplinary dialogue on the interface between psychology and theology that takes seriously the long, rich tradition of soul care in the church. In this volume you'll find incisive discussions ofthe current state of theology and psychologyovercoming the acquiescence to secularismtheological resources for developing Christian psychologytaking theology to heart in psychologytaking psychology to heart in theology and Christian lifeContributors include Jeffry H.

Epigraph
Dedication
As a historical and systematic theologian Dr. Timothy R. Phillips, coeditor of this book, was keenly aware of the pervasive brokenness of our world. Since the Fall of humankind--when sin corrupted a perfect creation--we have suffered with sickness and travail, and have yearned for our spiritual home where we will finally be able to experience the width, length, height and depth of God's love (E[hesians 3:18). Tim lived and taught this theoloy, quietly struggling against the cancer in his own boy as he helped his stuents know God. On September 27, 2000, we lost a valued faculty member, friend and colleague. Sandy Phillips lost a faithful husband, Aaron and Caleb lost a loving father. Tim's death, like his fifty years of life, revealed a man of integrity and goodness. We miss him.
First words
[Introduction] A contemporary advertisement for a luxury car reads, "It gets into your soul, not your pocketbook." For a car with a $45,000 price tag, this claim is disputable, but the advertisers persis because they understand that the soul is marketable.
We live in the epoch of a great revolution.
