Item Description...
Overview
We are watching the collapse of the traditional Western church. New models are desperately needed to give postmodern people a reason to follow Christ. In Becoming More Human, Peter Holmes presents a theoretical framework for a new type of local congregation-what he refers to as a therapeutic faith community-based on a clinical model that has been running very successfully for a number of years at Christ Church Deal in the UK. The author outlines a journey of therapeutic discipleship change toward Christ-likeness, using a Biblical pneuma-psychology and therapeutic process developed over 35 years. He explains how "out of the box" thinking can lead to a particularly vibrant community life attractive to the un-churched.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A worthwhile read  Mar 25, 2006
I was excited to purchase this book. The title itself was enough to hook me. Originally a doctoral dissertation, Holmes has made the work accessible to those interested in the intersection between spiritual formation and psychology. It is well organized, well-written, and chock full of elaborative footnotes. I love how Holmes brings church history, philosophy, theology, psychology, and spiritual traditions to bear on the question: How do people change? Further, the entire text is borne out of personal, pastoral experience which utilizes a broad-scoped qualitative research study by a friend of his. It is written from and for the church, and it is a valuable text I'll likely use in an upcoming psychology-theology integration course where I teach.
