Item Description...
Honored in 2006 as a "Year's Best Book for Preachers" by Preaching magazine.Why a search for the soul?Many Christians assume that it is biblically faithful and theologically noncontroversial to speak of humans having a soul. Yet a wide range of biblical scholars are questioning whether we have correctly understood what the Bible means when it speaks of the "soul." And contemporary neuroscience is laying more and more questions at the doorstep of the church, asking whether our human sense of self is intelligible on the basis of soul. But for thoughtful Christians, following science on this point looks like caving in to reductionism, while denying science gives off the odor of obscurantism. In Search of the Soul provides a rare opportunity to listen in as four Christian philosophers set forth their best arguments for their distinct views and then respond to each other. While each of these views calls for careful framing and patient exposition, they are labeled as follows:
  • substance dualism (Stewart Goetz)
  • emergent dualism (William Hasker)
  • nonreductive physicalism (Nancey Murphy)
  • constitution view of persons (Kevin Corcoran)
Editors Joel B. Green and Stuart L. Palmer introduce the debate by laying out the critical issues at stake, and wrap it up by considering the implications for the Christian life, particularly hospitality and forgiveness. This is a book of timely interest to philosophers, theologians, psychologists and pastors. Whatever conclusions readers may draw, they will find here an instructive and engaging discussion of a controversy that will not go away any time soon.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Not for the Faint of Soul  Sep 29, 2006
"In Search of the Soul" is written in the classic "four views" motif where four separate authors present their views on a top, with each author also responding to the other views. Readers receive an overview of primary current views of the nature of human nature. The writing is academic and dense, and thus not for the average reader, but for the academic specializing in biblical anthropology. For the specialist, this is surely the place to start in gaining an understanding of the current debate.

Reviewer: Bob Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Biblical Psychology," "Soul Physicians," "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," and "Spiritual Friends."
