Healing for Freedom: A Christian Perspective on Personhood and Psychotherapy (Paperback)Benedict M. Ashley (author)
- We can order this
The desire for ultimate flourishing serves as the guide for understanding the interrelationship between human embodiedness, rational thought, choice and communal life. Human beings naturally long to know the ultimate origin and end of life and, by the gift of faith, respond to God's call to holiness and perfection. From this perspective, Ashley calls psychologists to be attentive to both the animal and the personal aspects of being human. In contrast to the claims of the new atheists, he argues that coherence is found not in opposing but rather in confirming the fittingness of human openness to transcendence.
Throughout the book, he demonstrates how psychotherapeutic models of healing can be rendered compatible with a Christian notion of knowledge, love and action at embodied, personal and interpersonal levels.
