Material is structured according to four major themes: Orientation, Personal Aspects of Religion, Psychology of the Church and Psychology of Pastoral Practice. This professional handbook, the definitive textbook in its field, is tailored to meet the specific needs of the Christian ministry as they encounter psychology in their training and their everyday work.
