In this book, Ken Boa takes the reader on an innovative exercise as he examines what six prominent theologians and eight psychologists of renown believe and teach about human needs. Where do they agree about human nature? Where do they disagree? Are their differences based on scientific knowledge? Psychobabble has become a part of culture's everyday vocabulary. Terms are bandied about and statement are taken as truth without knowing where they come from or what they imply. This book will help readers see how psychological perspectives are in harmony with Christian theological perspectives, and where they sometimes do conflict.
Six theologians and eight psychologists from history square off, finding both differences and common ground in their thinking on the most basic human needs.
