Tending Soul, Mind, and Body: The Art and Science of Spiritual Formation
Title: Tending Soul, Mind, and Body: The Art and Science of Spiritual Formation
Publisher: IVP Academic
Throughout his ministry, Jesus consistently demonstrated his concern and love for the whole person: soul, mind, and body.
That task is carried forward today by pastors and church leaders, who are called to care for people in the midst of individual circumstances as well as seismic cultural shifts. How might that calling be informed by recent developments in psychology? How should the church attend to matters of mental health? How might psychology and counseling aid us in our spiritual formation?
Based on the 2018 Center for Pastor Theologians conference, this volume brings together reflections by pastors, theologians, and psychologists who explore the relationships among three fields of study—theological anthropology, spiritual formation, and modern psychology. The result is a vibrant whole-person theology that can aid the church today in its centuries-old call to care for the soul, mind, and body.
