This book combats the anti-religious sentiment of some psychologists. It argues that Christians do not have to give up their religious faith to keep the contributions of science. A science compatible with religion accepts that human beings have freedom of will to select behaviors and that all methods of studying human behavior are acceptable. Both of these premises are accepted by a modern view of science which recognizes its inherent subjectivity. E. Rae Harcum explicitly asserts the important role of spirituality in psychology, especially in psychotherapy. The book confronts the relation between the human body and its non-material partsthe mind and spiritand provides a way of looking at these metaphysical issues. A Psychology for People of God promotes the need of the Christian to love and to care for his or her fellows. After all, fitness for survival entails the willingness to serve.
