An Academic Study of Christian Soul Care
This book offers an interesting look at soul care through the lenses of ancient philosophy, Christian tradition and secular psychology. Taking the philosophical categories of Truth, Beauty and Goodness, the authors show how they translate into Biblical concepts and practical gifts. The very small section on spiritual darkness as a crucible of human change has intriguing possibilities. However, this text is aimed at an academic audience, and casual readers might have a hard time sticking with it. The real-life examples at the end of the book are helpful in making abstract concepts more practical; there might have been more of them scattered throughout the text. Overall, this is a good book for thinking through the integration of psychology and theology in Christian practice.
