Book Description

Sept. 15 1983
Examines the significance of the contemporary psychoanalytic theory of object relations and its relation to faith. Using case studies and a combined psychological and theological analysis, the author demonstrates that object relations theory offers a powerful basis for a more comprehensive understanding of the human construction of an image of God and the psychological dynamics of faith. Suitable for upper-division undergraduate and graduate students of the psychology of religion and religious development, and also for those studying religious education, pastoral counseling and spiritual direction.
