Content

In 'Resurrection Psychology' Margaret Alter advances a system of psychology based upon biblical Christianity. 
Moving away from the notion that therapy must be completely value-neutral, the author suggests how the worlds of psychology and theology can enhance and inform one another.
The result is a practical model of human personality observable in Jesus' life and teachings.
As a practicing therapist and adjunct professor, Alter combines her extensive experience with years of study to offer a fresh approach to the field of psychology.
By examining gospel stories that represent ten major themes and applying them to individual lives today, this book draws upon the teachings of Jesus as it addresses and transforms contemporary theories of psychology.

  •     I first encountered this material twenty years ago when taking a seminary class from Dr. Alter, and it continues to shape my thinking and to deepen my understanding of the ministry of Jesus. By all rights, this work should be a best seller and a "classic". It addresses deep and challenging topics in an easy-to-read style and with many memorable anecdotes and illustrations.
