Personality Type and Scripture by Revd Canon Leslie J. Francis
Book DescriptionIn this fascinating and original book, Leslie J. Francis applies personality type theory to the way we study the bible. Why, when two people are asked what they find important in a biblical text, are they likely to come up with different answers? Why, when a sermon speaks strongly to someone, do others find it incprehensible? In recent years, both inside and outside the Christian community, the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI) has been extensively used as an aid to spiritual growth, self-knowledge and community building. Type theory has become an invaluable resource in the spheres of education, management and pastoral care. Here, Lesie J. Frances suggests that in learning to understand our own preferred pattern of spirituality we do not only deepen our understanding of the gospels but also increase our sensitivity to the approaches of others. Personality Type and Scripture brings together the texts from St Mark's gospel which are included in Year B of the Revised Common Lectionary, and uses the insights of MBTI theory to explore the range of possible responses to them. Accessible enough for use in personal Bible reading, its disciplined and professional approach makes it an invaluable companion for Bible study leaders and preachers. Leslie J. Frances is D.J.James Professor of Pastoral Theology and Trinity College, Carmarthen, and University of Wales, Lampeter, UK. He is an Anglican priest, a Fellow of the British Psychological Society and a qualified practitioner of the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator.
