Summary
"This volume is the result and final report of a scholarly process initiated by the Pew Charitable Trusts. Pew issued a challenge to eight academic disciplines: Assemble a panel of senior scholars to identify the dominant models within your discipline, comparing and contrasting them with historic Christian perspectives regarding human nature. The identified disciplines were economics, history, law, literature, philosophy, political science, psychology, and sociology. In this volume, the chapters deal primarily with the Jewish and Christian perspectives of these and subsequent matters. Each chapter has also benefited from critique by at least 16 senior colleagues across four rounds of review. It is the hope of the editors that this text will help stimulate an increasing dialogue between psychology and faith perspectives in the decades to come"--Introd.
