Item Description...
While spiritual aspects of health are familiar to many medical practitioners and in the treatment of substance use disorders, psychology as a discipline still has some catching up to do. This volume is a further step in the dialogue between psychology and religion. The central question is how psychology's understanding of human nature might be informed, altered, or expanded by historic Judeo-Christian perspectives, addressed primarily to psychologists and other behavioral scientists.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A thoughtful and provoking call to action...  Jan 16, 2005
It is both necessary and beneficial for promoting the uniqueness and maturation of the field of psychology that issues of religion and spirituality be embraced by research psychologists and clinicians alike. This theme is the central message of Judeo-Christian Perspectives, an excellent text edited by Bill Miller and Harold Delaney. Encompassing a wide variety of topics from self-control to sexuality to struggles of the soul, this book demonstrates that psychology cannot do justice to the study of the person without examining the contributions and influences of religion. Using Jewish and Christian ideology, scriptures, and practices, the authors explore how current topics and research pursuits in psychology (including volition, motivation, personality, moral and spiritual development, sexuality, health and well-being, and personal change) might be broadened and advanced by acknowledging and integrating these spiritual perspectives. The book describes the crossroads at which psychology and religion currently stand, and it provides both theoretical considerations and practical recommendations to incorporate Jewish and Christian perspectives into psychological theory and research.

Judeo-Christian Perspectives provides an empirically-supported examination of the religion-psychology interface, suggesting that both assimilation and accommodation may be required to fully explore the nature of human beings. It is not written by or for a singular audience (e.g., orthodox Jews, evangelical Christians), but instead includes a diverse authorship that aims to reach an even more diverse field. Drawing from a wealth of scholarly research, this book proposes that psychology must move beyond the reductionism and materialism that has characterized much of its history in order to fulfill its namesake as "the study of the human psyche." Psychologists, regardless of their personal religious beliefs, have both an obligation and an opportunity to consider the impact of Judeo-Christian beliefs on their empirical pursuits and clinical practice. In light of the fact that a significant majority of Americans consider religious faith to be the most important influence in their lives, the integration of psychology and religion cannot be reduced to checking off a box on a demographic survey or other simplistic attempts to incorporate spirituality. The volume by Miller and Delaney goes beyond a basic consideration of religious factors to propose a collaborative dialogue or even a deeper integration of Judeo-Christian beliefs with psychology. The resulting effort is not a uniform research proposal (as even the various chapter authors have different conceptualizations and recommendations), but a challenge to the field to deliberately create opportunities for religious perspectives to influence and inform the whole of psychological study.
An excellent contribution to religious studies   Dec 9, 2004
Judeo-Christian Perspectives On Psychology: Human Nature, Motivation, And Change is a selection of essays by learned individuals grounded in the 2001 challenge the Pew Charitable Trust made to psychology, among seven other academic disciplines, to show how dominant models of human nature compare and contrast with the Judeo-Christian view of the individual. Covering such topics as the spiritual dimension of reality, the importance of the freedom to make choices and be held responsible for the outcomes, the potential for personal transformation above and beyond rational decision making, and much more, these scholarly, extensively researched and annotated discussions open a window into higher con-templation of the nature of humanity itself as perceived through the twin windows faith and the science of the mind. An excellent contribution to religious studies and psychological existential debate shelves.
