About this title

Synopsis:

This comprehensive textbook discusses four key aspects of the human person by exploring the relationship between origin and destiny, substance and identity, function and behavior, and relationships and community. The authors argue that an integrated approach of theology and psychology not only enhances our understanding of what it means to be human, but is also key to that understanding.

From the Back Cover:

What does it mean to be human? Both the Bible and psychology have unique perspectives on the question, and when understood together they can enrich our perspective on people while improving our ministry to those in need.

Written by experts in their respective fields, this book explores four aspects of the human person: origin and destiny, substance and identity, function and behavior, relationships and community. After examining the underpinnings of anthropology from a biblical and theological position, it then analyzes what it means to be human from a psychological perspective. Finally, it integrates the two disciplines, creating a comprehensive textbook for courses in theological anthropology, clinical psychology, and counseling, as well as providing a resource for pastoral and professional counselors.

“This is a great organizational scheme and a great conversation, regardless of [whether theology or psychology] is the reader’s primary language.”

—Everett L. Worthington Jr.
Professor and Chair of Psychology, Virginia Commonwealth University

“This book is a remarkable achievement, bringing together theological anthropology, systematic theology, and contemporary psychology into a comprehensive text. Although I do not agree with all their conclusions, I applaud Demarest and Beck for their thorough scholarship and commend this book as a thoughtful and sometimes provocative look at the human person.”

—Mark R. McMinn
Professor of Psychology, Wheaton College
