An expert in moral and philosophical psychology, Robert C Roberts here develops an up-to-date understanding of human emotions as a basic part of Christian moral character. With an eye to how emotions function in the New Testament, Roberts explores emotions as non-sensory perceptions that arise from personal caring and concern. His study culminates with an examination of six "fruit of the Holy Spirit" emotion-virtues: contrition, joy, gratitude, hope, peace, and compassion. Though "Spiritual Emotions" is rigorous in its focus on the inner structure of Christian character, it is nonetheless readable and is laced with many narrative examples. The book will be immensely useful for Christian ethicists, psychologists, preachers, and counselors.
