A probing assessment of the interaction and debate between psychiatry and Christianity. FREUD VS. GOD shatters the "comfortable accommodation" between Christianity and psychiatry, and in so doing restores the soul to psychiatry and the mind to Christianity. 350 pages, from IVP.

CHRISTIAN THEOLOGIANS AND PSYCHIATRISTS RARELY TALKED WITH ONE ANOTHER ABOUT emotional suffering. But Freud brought psychiatry out of the asylum into everyday life, and Christians could no longer ignore it. What ensued were decades of often hostile and rarely constructive debate between theologians and psychiatrists. Now, in large part, the debate is over. But, argues psychiatrist (and Christian) Dan Blazer, it ended too soon, and altogether unsatisfactorily. For their part, Christians have baptized and adopted some of the worst aspects of psychiatry. And psychiatrists have cut themselves off from the "soul"-deep issues of meaning and community that animate all genuinely human life. Freud vs. God aims to rekindle the debate, to shatter the "comfortable accommodation" between Christianity and psychiatry, and in so doing to restore the soul to psychiatry and the mind to Christianity. This important and provocative book is must reading for all psychiatrists, theologians, pastors, counselors and interested laypersons.
