Social Psychology in Christian Perspective

Angela M Sabates

Social Psychology in Christian Perspective

Angela M Sabates

$59.99

Hardback
Human social interaction is varied, complex and always changing. How we perceive each other and ourselves, how individuals interact within groups, and how groups are structured--all these are the domain of social psychology. Many have doubted, however, that a full-fledged social psychology textbook can successfully be written from a Christian perspective. Inevitably, some say, when attempting to integrate theology and social psychology, one discipline must suffer at the expense of the other. Angela Sabates counters that thinking by demonstrating how these two disciplines can indeed be brought together in a fruitful way. She crisply covers key topics in social psychology, utilizing research that is well grounded in the empirical and theoretical literature, while demonstrating how a distinctively Christian approach can offer fresh ideas and understandings.
  • Why doesn’t our behavior always match what we say we believe?
  • How and when are we most likely to be persuaded?
  • What is the social psychology of violence?
  • How reliable are eyewitness testimonies?
  • Are racism and prejudice on the decline or are we just better at hiding them?
Sabates draws out the implications of a Christian view of human persons on these and other central subjects within the well-established framework of social psychological study. This volume is for those looking for a core text that makes use of a Christian theological perspective to explore what the science of psychology suggests to us about the nature of human social interaction.
