  • Thriving With Stone Age Minds


    What does God’s creation of humanity through the process of evolution mean for how we think about human flourishing?

    The emerging field of evolutionary psychology remains controversial, perhaps especially among Christians. Yet according to Justin Barrett and Pamela Ebstyne King it can be a powerful tool for understanding human nature and our distinctively human purpose. In Thriving with Stone Age Minds, Barrett and King provide an introduction to evolutionary psychology, explaining the importance of key concepts such as hyper-sociality, information gathering, and self-control. They then combine insights from evolutionary psychology with resources from the Bible and Christian theology, all focused on the question, What is human flourishing? When we understand how humans still bear the marks of our evolutionary past, new light shines on some of the most puzzling features of our minds, relationships, and behaviors. One key insight of evolutionary psychology is how humans both adapt to and in turn alter our particular environments, or niches. In fact, we change our world faster than our minds can adapt–and then gaps in our fitness emerge. In effect, humans are now attempting to thrive in modern contexts with Stone Age minds. By integrating scientific evidence with wisdom from theological anthropology, Barrett and King argue, we can learn to close up nature-niche gaps and thrive, becoming more what God has created us to be.

  • Relational Spirituality : A Psychological-Theological Paradigm For Transfor


    Human beings are fundamentally relational-we develop, heal, and grow through relationships. Integrating insights from psychology and theology, Todd W. Hall and M. Elizabeth Lewis Hall present a definitive model of spiritual transformation based on a relational paradigm, showing how transformation works practically in the context of relationships and community.

    As our society becomes more socially fragmented, many Christians feel disconnected and struggle to grow spiritually. Common models of spiritual transformation are proving inadequate to address the sanctification gap. In recent decades, however, a new paradigm of human and spiritual development has been emerging from multiple fields. It’s supported by a critical mass of evidence, all pointing to what psychologists Todd W. Hall and M. Elizabeth Lewis Hall call a relational revolution. In Relational Spirituality, Hall and Hall present a definitive model of spiritual transformation based on a relational paradigm. At its heart is the truth that human beings are fundamentally relational-we develop, heal, and grow through relationships. While many sanctification models are fragmented, individualistic, and lack a clear process for change, the relational paradigm paints a coherent picture of both process and goal, supported by both ancient wisdom and cutting-edge research. Integrating insights from psychology and theology, this book lays out the basis for relational spiritual transformation and how it works practically in the context of relationships and community. Relational Spirituality draws together themes such as trinitarian theology, historical and biblical perspectives on the imago Dei, relational knowledge, attachment patterns, and interpersonal neurobiology into a broad synthesis that will stimulate further dialogue across a variety of fields. Highlighting key characteristics of spiritual communities that foster transformation, Hall and Hall equip spiritual leaders and practitioners to more effectively facilitate spiritual growth for themselves and those they serve.

  • Positive Psychology In Christian Perspective


    Originally the field of psychology had a threefold mission: to cure mental illness, yes, but also to find ways to make life fulfilling for all and to maximize talent. Over the last century, a focus on mental illness has often been prioritized over studies of health, to the point that many people assume psychologist is just another way of saying psychotherapist. This book is about one attempt to restore the discipline’s larger mission.

    Positive psychology attends to what philosophers call the good life. It is about fostering strength and living well–about how to do a good job at being human. Some of that will involve cheerful emotions, and some of it will not. There are vital roles to be played by archetypal challenges such as those involving self-control, guilt, and grit, and even the terror of death enters into positive psychology’s vision of human flourishing. Charles Hackney connects this still-new movement to foundational concepts in philosophy and Christian theology. He then explores topics such as subjective states, cognitive processes, and the roles of personality, relationships, and environment, also considering relevant practices in spheres from the workplace to the church and even the martial arts dojo. Hackney takes seriously the range of critiques positive psychology has faced as he frames a constructive future for Christian contributions to the field.

    Can the phenomena of the human mind be separated from the practices of spiritual formation?of growing to have the mind of Christ? Research into the nature of moral and spiritual change has revived in recent years, in the worlds of psychology on the one hand and theology and philosophy on the other. But psychology and spiritual formation draw upon distinct bodies of research and theory grounded in different methodologies, resulting in conversation that has suffered from a lack of interdisciplinary cross-pollination. Rooted in a year-long discussion held by Biola University’s Center for Christian Thought (CCT), this volume bridges the gaps caused by professional specialization among psychology, theology, and philosophy. Each essay was forged out of an integrative discussion among theologians, psychologists, philosophers, New Testament scholars, educators, and pastors around the CCT seminar table. Topics that emerged included relational and developmental spirituality, moral virtue and judgment, and suffering and trauma. Psychology and Spiritual Formation in Dialogue speaks across disciplinary divides, fostering fruitful conversation for fresh insights into the nature and dynamics of personal spiritual change.

  • Human Person : A Beginner’s Thomistic Psychology


    The Human Person presents a brief introduction to the human mind, the soul, immortality, and free will. While delving into the thought of Thomas Aquinas, it addresses contemporary topics, such as skepticism, mechanism, animal language research, and determinism. Steven J. Jensen probes the primal questions of human nature. Are human beings free or determined? Is the capacity to reason distinctive to human beings or do animals also have some share of reason? Have animals really been taught to use language?

    The Human Person touches on topics that bear upon the very fabric of the universe. Are human beings merely well-ordered collections of chemicals or do they have a soul that gives them life and understanding? Is there any element in human beings that survives death? Can human minds get in touch with the objective world or just forever dwell in the domain of their subjective experiences? The book closes by considering the most fundamental question of all: are human beings merely cosmic accidents with no purpose or is there some meaning to human life?

    In this book, beginners of philosophy will learn the wonders of their own nature by studying Aquinas’s thought on the human person.

    Is there more to clinical supervision than our current theories and methods can provide? Whether we intend them to be or not, our mentoring practices are personally formative for supervisees and supervisors alike. Developing Clinicians of Character grounds our thinking in the historic and contemporary wisdom of virtue ethics and grows out of a love for the practice of clinical supervision. It aims to identify and strengthen supervision’s important role for character formation in the classroom, in continuing education for practitioners, and in clinical settings.

    After an overview of the role of character formation in clinical supervision, Developing Clinicians of Character examines each classical Christian virtue in turn, its corresponding professional ethical aspiration, and how we can use the practices of clinical supervision and spiritual formation together to foster character formation for Christian maturity and Christlikeness.

    Dr. Terri S. Watson welcomes and equips you to excel in the helping profession within a helping profession as you provide clinical supervision for other mental health workers in counseling, psychology, and marriage and family therapy. This book will shape your own character through spiritual disciplines in the classical virtues-and outward in expanding circles of encouragement, formation, and healing.

  • Listening To Sexual Minorities


    Students arrive on campus with various boxes of belongings to unpack, some heavy, some tidy, some more valuable, some more private. For many students, two of these boxes could be labeled My Faith and My Sexuality-and these two can be among the most cumbersome to handle. How to balance the two without having to set one down? How to hold them both closely, both securely, but still move forward to settle in with new friends in a new environment? How to keep from dropping one or the other, spilling its embarrassing contents for all to see?

    Such can be the struggle for any student, but especially for any sexual minority who identifies or struggles with an LGB+ identity or same-sex attraction on a Christian college campus. For these students their faith and their sexuality often feel both tender and in acute tension. Who is God making them to be? What do they need to grow in to develop faithfully, and what might they need to leave behind? How can they truly flourish?

    The research team of Yarhouse, Dean, Stratton, and Lastoria draw on their decades of experience both in the psychology of sexual identity and in campus counseling to bring us the results of an original longitudinal study into what sexual minorities themselves experience, hope for, and benefit from. Rich with both quantitative and qualitative data, their book gives an unprecedented opportunity to listen to sexual minorities in their own words, as well as to observe patterns and often surprising revelations about life and personal development both on campus and after graduation.

    Listening to Sexual Minorities will be an indispensable resource not only for counselors and psychologists but also for faculty, student-development leaders, and administrators in higher education as well as leaders in the church and wider Christian community who want to create an intentional environment to hear from and contribute to the spiritual flourishing of all.

  • Think This Not That


    What we think about radically affects us body, soul, and spirit.

    Contrary to popular belief, circumstances do not determine our mood. Instead, our thoughts, feelings, and behaviors flow from our interpretations of events. In the mind, we give meaning to troubling events, and that meaning causes us emotional pain and turmoil.

    Philippians 4:8 challenges us to think about what is true, right, pure, and excellent, but it is not simply a charge to think positively. How we think actually changes how we respond to crises and difficult situations. Drawing on her experience as a clinical psychotherapist and a trauma survivor, Rita Schulte gives a prescription for better health and well-being that combines faith and science. Through a strong connection to God, mindfulness techniques, and target exercises, you can change toxic thinking patterns and rewire your brain to achieve optimum mental and physical health.

    Additional Info
    It is said that the true test of a society is how it treats its most vulnerable members.

    As many as one in four girls and one in six boys experience sexual abuse during childhood, and it’s estimated that as many as half of the incidents are never reported. This means that countless millions in our societies, both children and adults, carry this complex, often hidden pain. What does the path to healing look like for survivors? And how can ministry leaders, pastors, and counselors best help them as they walk this difficult road?

    Drawing on both his own experience and his wife’s experience as survivors of childhood sexual abuse, minister and lecturer Tim Hein offers his expertise, practical guidance, and empathy-both for ministry leaders and for survivors themselves. How can we best respond when a survivor shares their secret with us? Where can survivors turn for encouragement when the road to recovery seems so long and lonely? Hein presents clinical data and resources alongside pastoral wisdom and care, addressing both psychological and spiritual aspects of sexual abuse.

    Both for those who have suffered sexual abuse and those in a position to help them, this book is a rich resource. Filled with both sober truths and the hope of Christ, it calls survivors to take courage and walk unafraid down the road of healing.

  • Christian And Good Mental Health


    With more than half a million mental health professionals in practice in the United States, it would appear that those seeking help with depression, addiction, anxiety, and a host of other mental issues could find the assistance they need. The vast majority of those professionals, however, can do more harm than good if their approach to their specialty ignores the spiritual point of view and moral values that Christian patients espouse. Larry Swaim has been a practicing psychotherapist for more than 30 years. Drawing upon biblical principles for good mental health, he counsels readers through some of the most common mental and emotional illnesses and disorders so that they can make the best possible decisions for the care of themselves or family members.

  • Power Of Moments


    The New York Times bestselling authors of Switch and Made to Stick explore why certain brief experiences can jolt us and elevate us and change us-and how we can learn to create such extraordinary moments in our life and work.

    While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children?

    This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience, as well as the last moment, and forget the rest. Why we feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they’re not. And why our most cherished memories are clustered into a brief period during our youth.

    Readers discover how brief experiences can change lives, such as the experiment in which two strangers meet in a room, and forty-five minutes later, they leave as best friends. (What happens in that time?) Or the tale of the world’s youngest female billionaire, who credits her resilience to something her father asked the family at the dinner table. (What was that simple question?)

    Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck-but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them? The Power of Moments shows us how to be the author of richer experiences.

    While human lives are endlessly variable, our most memorable positive moments are dominated by four elements: elevation, insight, pride, and connection. If we embrace these elements, we can conjure more moments that matter. What if a teacher could design a lesson that he knew his students would remember twenty years later? What if a manager knew how to create an experience that would delight customers? What if you had a better sense of how to create memories that matter for your children?

    This book delves into some fascinating mysteries of experience: Why we tend to remember the best or worst moment of an experience, as well as the last moment, and forget the rest. Why we feel most comfortable when things are certain, but we feel most alive when they’re not. And why our most cherished memories are clustered into a brief period during our youth.

    Readers discover how brief experiences can change lives, such as the experiment in which two strangers meet in a room, and forty-five minutes later, they leave as best friends. (What happens in that time?) Or the tale of the world’s youngest female billionaire, who credits her resilience to something her father asked the family at the dinner table. (What was that simple question?)

    Many of the defining moments in our lives are the result of accident or luck-but why would we leave our most meaningful, memorable moments to chance when we can create them? The Power of Moments shows us how to be the author of richer experiences.

  • How To Think


    A Currency Title

    As a celebrated cultural critic and a writer for national publications like The Atlantic and Harper’s, Alan Jacobs has spent his adult life belonging to communities that often clash in America’s culture wars. And in his years of confronting the big issues that divide us-political, social, religious-Jacobs has learned that many of our fiercest disputes occur not because we’re doomed to be divided, but because the people involved simply aren’t thinking.

    Most of us don’t want to think, Jacobs writes. Thinking is trouble. Thinking can force us out of familiar, comforting habits, and it can complicate our relationships with like-minded friends. Finally, thinking is slow, and that’s a problem when our habits of consuming information (mostly online) leave us lost in the spin cycle of social media, partisan bickering, and confirmation bias.

    In this smart, endlessly entertaining book, Jacobs diagnoses the many forces that act on us to prevent thinking-forces that have only worsened in the age of Twitter, alternative facts, and information overload-and he also dispels the many myths we hold about what it means to think well. (For example: It’s impossible to think for yourself.)

    Drawing on sources as far-flung as novelist Marilynne Robinson, basketball legend Wilt Chamberlain, British philosopher John Stuart Mill, and Christian theologian C.S. Lewis, Jacobs digs into the nuts and bolts of the cognitive process, offering hope that each of us can reclaim our mental lives from the impediments that plague us all. Because if we can learn to think together, maybe we can learn to live together, too.

  • Much Ado About Something


    Who, from a scientific perspective, could possibly accept the idea of a virgin birth, or any of Christ’s miracles, much less his death and resurrection? Only a child (Luke 18:17) or a Christian possessed of a considerable degree of maturity (1 Cor 13:11). This enthralling book reveals how a person can develop from childhood innocence to spiritual maturity via a series of psychological stages, through constant (but often unconscious) communication with the Holy Spirit. Growth occurs most often through adversity and the emotional healing that accompanies acceptance of God’s Will. Such experiences allow people to let go of less immature attachments and aversions, and to be free to live with increasing spontaneity in the moment’, attuned to the sufferings of others, both wiser and more compassionate.

  • Lovingkindness : Realizing And Practicing Your True Self


    Lovingkindness–acting with selfless compassion toward others–is a widely recognized virtue that is honored across world religions. But what does it look like in practice? How can we more fully and consistently live this calling, to be a loving presence in the world? This book explores the promise and challenge of living with lovingkindness, a concept with deep ancient roots. It offers a framework of twelve dimensions along which people make choices in daily life. Short chapters explore each of these dimensions of lovingkindness, including opportunities for practice. The structure is suitable for self-study or for use in discussion groups. In truth, lovingkindness is not something that you can achieve or perfect. It is more like a star by which to guide your life journey, a distant goal toward or away from which you move through countless choices that you make each day. This book is about that journey.

  • God And Soul Care


    Christianity, at its heart, is a therapeutic faith-a religion of soul care. The story of the Christianity is a story of divine therapy. God’s therapeautic agenda begins in the perfect triune communion of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. The triune God created human beings to flourish by participating in his glory, but human beings rebelled against this agenda and fell into the psychopathology of sin. God therapeutically intervened in Jesus Christ to bring about healing in body and soul. Through his incarnation, life, death, resurrection, and exaltation, Christ put to death the soul-disordering consequences of sin and brought about a new creation through union with and conformity to him. The church as the body of Christ is where God’s therapy is put into action-where people can flourish in communion the way God originally intended. Told in this way, the deep connection between Christian faith and psychology becomes evident. While many Christians are wary of therapy, the Christian tradition is thoroughly therapeautic and contains ample resources for engaging in dialogue with modern psychology. In God and Soul Care-a companion to Foundations for Soul Care-Eric L. Johnson explores the riches of Christian theology, from the heights of the Trinity to the mysteries of eschatology. Each chapter not only serves as an overview of a key doctrine, but it also highlights the therapeutic implications of this doctrine for Christian counseling and psychology. A groundbreaking achievement in the integration of theology and psychology, God and Soul Care is an indispensable resource for students, scholars, pastors, and clinicians.

    Additional Info
    What you believe about God actually changes your brain. Brain research in neuroscience has found that our thoughts and beliefs affect our physical, mental, and spiritual health. Mind and body are interrelated, and we are designed for healthy relationships of love and trust. When we understand God as good and loving, we flourish. Unfortunately, many of us have distorted images of God and mostly think of him in fearful, punitive ways. This leads us into unhealthy patterns of self-defeating behaviors and toxic relationships. But our lives can change when God renews our minds with a truer picture of him. Psychiatrist Tim Jennings unveils how our brains and bodies thrive when we have a healthy understanding of who God is. He dispels common misconceptions about God and shows how different God concepts affect the brain differently. Our brains can adapt, change, and rewire with redeemed thinking that frees us from unnecessary pain and suffering. Discover how neuroscience and Scripture come together to bring healing and transformation to our lives. This expanded edition now includes a study guide for individual reflection or group discussion, with questions for learning from Scripture, science and nature, and experience.

  • Divine Imprint : Finding God In The Human Mind


    The so-called New Atheists receive much publicity, but their demand to be provided with incontrovertible evidence for the existence of God, and that such evidence must come from a scientific examination of the physical world, is the wrong approach. As many theologians and philosophers have claimed, the search for God begins by looking inwards into oneself. But what does that mean? Surely looking inwards we find nothing but the contents of one’s own mind. Where does God come in? It is by the examination of the contents of the mind and trying to understand how they got there that one seeks clues about God’s influence on the mind. Our consciousness bears a resemblance to that Consciousness from which it is directly derived. It bears his imprint. It is from the characteristics of that imprint we get to know what kind of God we are dealing with. Only then can we be open to realizing how that other creation of his, the physical world, also bears his imprint.

  • Witness Of Religion In An Age Of Fear


    We live in a world driven by fear. But should we allow fear to play such a large role in our lives? According to the religions of the world, the answer is no.

    In this helpful and illuminating book, Michael Kinnamon challenges readers to consider why we find ourselves in this age of fear and what we can do about it. Drawing on support from a diversity of religious traditions and teachers, Kinnamon argues that religious faith is the best way to combat a culture of fear. He explores fear in relation to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict and the American political scene, and he shares courageous examples of individuals from different religions working for peace.

    Perfect for individuals or group study, this book helps readers understand the manipulative power of fear and how religious beliefs call us to reject fear at all costs. A study guide is included.

  • Competing Fundamentalisms : Violent Extremism In Christianity Islam And Hin


    Why do certain groups and individuals seek to do harm in the name of God? While studies often claim to hold the key to this frightening phenomenon, they seldom account for the crucial and growing role that religious fundamentalism plays not just in radical Islam but also in the world’s two other largest religions: Christianity and Hinduism. As the first book to examine violent extremism in the world’s three largest religions together, Sathianathan Clarke draws on studies in sociology, psychology, culture, and economics to paint a richer portrait of this potent force in modern life. Clarke argues that religious fundamentalism is fueled and driven by the forces of globalization; that religious fundamentalists have more in common with their counterparts across religious lines than they do with the members of their own religions; and that religious fundamentalism becomes a surrogate religion, replacing in all three cases the religious tradition from which it arose.

    In light of the challenges these competing fundamentalisms pose to the peace and stability of the world, Clarke proposes that Christians, Muslims, and Hindus refuse to allow modern fundamentalism to define their ancient religious traditions. Instead, he calls for a rejection of fundamentalism’s zero-sum world in favor of a serious and sustained engagement with the members of all the world’s religions, as well as those of no religion. Readers will gain new and important insight into the problem of religious extremism and violence by seeing how it works in the world’s three largest religions.

  • Pure Gift : The Second


    Pura Regalado believes she witnessed the promised second coming of Jesus. Her main task is to unveil the identity of the false prophet whom Jesus warned humanity about during His physical life on earth two thousand years ago. The doctrines of this false prophet are the root causes of our present major conflicts on earth. This book also aims to end all false beliefs in our world that prevent our harmonious existence.

    Pura believes that what we call God is really a natural force in our universe, which is sentient because it communicated to her. This Supreme Power communicated to her through the words of Jesus in the Gospels in the Bible; thus she is equating it as the promised second coming of Christ. Her encounter with the Supreme Being above also gave her the insight as to why senseless killings are happening.

    Someone told Pura that to claim God speaks to you is delusional, but the repeated pattern of the number two in her life, which is still happening to this day, and many other coincidences happening around her, convinced her that she has this task to carry out. Read her book and judge. Please make our world a better place.
