Item Description...
Finding a good, honest discussion of psychopathology from a Christian perspective is not easy. So it's with pleasure that we recommend this solid entry which analyzes disorders while addressing etiology, treatment, and prevention. Wonderfully informative for believing health professionals. 416 pages, hardcover. InterVarsity.

Publishers Description
Modern Psychopathologies is addressed to students and mental health professionals who want to sort through contemporary secular understandings of psychopathology in relation to a Christian worldview. Written by well-known and respected scholars, the book, in nine core chapters, provides an introduction to a set of disorders along with overviews of current research on etiology, treatment and prevention. Prior chapters give a context for the integration of Christianity and the scientific study of psychopathology, and articulate integrative themes discussed throughout the book, providing a foundation for the concluding vision for Christian health professionals and the church. This is a unique and valuable resource for Christians studying psychology and counseling, or providing counseling services, pastoral care, Christian healing ministries or spiritual direction. Though fully capable of standing on its own, it is also a useful companion volume toModern Psychotherapies by Stanton L. Jones and Richard E. Butman.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Promising but Deceptive  Aug 11, 2006
While there is much useful information in this book, I find it disturbing that these "Christian" authors claim to be speaking for christianity when what they are really doing is advancing right wing christian ideology. A case in point is their characterization of homosexuality as "sin" -- claiming that that is THE Christian perspective. That is not the perspective of many (perhaps not most) christian folk -- and it is not the perspective of some christian denominations.
Great information and thoughts - not a smooth read  Aug 1, 2006
This book presents psychopathology from a Christian viewpoint.

The perspective is refreshing and thorough. It presents some interesting ideas and gives a nice overview of psychopathology, but it really isn't easy to read if you have no prior knowledge of the topic. Some complex topics are skimmed over, and names are thrown around very quickly. It seems like too much information all at once. On the other hand, if you already have a good background knowledge of the subjects, then lots of the information will seem oversimplified. I'm not really sure who the audience is supposed to be here. If this is designed for people who are new to psychopathology, then it moves too quickly through the causes and treatments sections, but if designed for those already in the field, it could spend more time on the Christian perspective of each mental illness or the church's response.
A Valient Attempt  Aug 4, 2005
Modern Psychopathologies does a fine job at defining the increasingly complex array of psychological illnesses. As a seminary student and future professional in the field, I found the integration of psychopathology with theology to be a bit meager. The authors rely heavily on hamartiology--the doctrine of sin--to forward their integrative pieces but overlook other important theological directions. I bought the book looking for greater understanding of the spiritial dimensions of psychopathology and found a book that only glances on the subject.
