Psychiatry, the Bible and the Church


Title: Paperback
Sale price£10.99


Written from a psychiatrist’s perspective and with consideration to cases that are both commonly faced in clinical practice and familiar to the reader, this book explores and examines different situations encountered by various characters in the Bible. Many will have pondered the unusual nature of Nebuchadnezzar’s mental illness, and some will have wondered whether Saul suffered from a mental disorder. Carefully interpretating biblical accounts and their implications for Christians in today’s church, Psychiatry, the Bible and the Church addresses a number of situations experienced in pages of Scripture which are also common today; marital breakdown, problems with children, anxiety, depression, the consequences of old age, bereavement, and many others. Each chapter includes its own case summary and section for discussion with inputs from both psychiatry and the Church. The psychiatric interpretational viewpoint enhances the overall understanding of these biblical events. Minimal reference to technical terminology and clear explanations mean that the language used within the book is easy to follow for the reader.
