Review:

A classic has just become better! The substantial content of this new edition will make it an even more useful treasure-house of information for the Christian mental health professional. -- James R. Beck, Denver Seminary

A substantial and beautifully presented encyclopedia covering the main areas of applied psychology, written entirely from a Christian perspective. As a reference volume, it is skillfully cross-referenced for ease of access to related topics -- --first edition-- John H. Court, Journal of Christian Healing

An all-star cast of Christian psychologists offer state-of-the-art synopses of their fields major concepts, theories, and therapies. A valuable resource for any Christian student, scholar, or practitioner of psychology. -- David Myers, professor of psychology, Hope College

I have always held this work in the highest regard and consider it to be one of the decades most invaluable resources. It is exceptionally comprehensive, and the second edition even surpasses the first. What I particularly value about the encyclopedia is that it is a phenomenal resource for integrating psychology and theology. The contributors are all outstandingly integrative and not only present the facts about psychology but critique these facts forthrightly and helpfully. Any Christian concerned for the truth about the human condition, not just those in the helping professions, will find this outstanding publication a great resource. I certainly have. Aside from its value to Christians I believe the encyclopedia is also a great resource for all psychologists and counselors. In fact I have recommended it to some of my non-Christian contacts on several occasions. -- Archibald D. Hart, Ph.D., FPPR., professor of psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary

In these postmodern days, mental health professionals have suddenly gained interest in the spiritual, but many seem to be ethereal meanderers desperately in need of theological roots. This volume provides counselors, pastors, educators, and students with relevant information solidly rooted in Christian theology and well-established psychological principles. Covering a wide range of topics - from advice giving to ethnic identity - each entry is authored by a respected professional with a Christian worldview. The Baker Encyclopedia of Psychology and Counseling should be the standard desk reference book for Christians working in mental health and pastoral care -- Mark R. McMinn, Ph.D.; Dr. Arthur P. Rech and Mrs. Jean May Rech Professor of Psychology, Director, Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology, Wheaton College

The second edition of The Baker Encyclopedia of Psychology and Counseling, written from a Christian perspective, is a great resource and reference work. Editors David Benner and Peter Hill are to commended for a job well done! -- Siang-Yang Tan, professor of Psychology, Fuller Theological Seminary

This is a monumental work! It is finely organized (alphabetically), well summarized, and complete--a collection of definitions and concise explanations of both psychiatric and psychological theories and persons. It is accurate, well documented, and highly readable, and its biblical perspective gives it special usefulness for Christian therapists. The Baker Encyclopedia of Psychology and Counseling is a necessity for ministers, counselors, and students of the mental health sciences. -- Grace H. Ketterman, M.D.

This is truly a gold mine of information for the pastor and student of theology and Christian ministry -- --frist edition--Charles H. Zimmerman, Biblical Theological Seminary Booklist
