Psychology for Christian Ministry is a comprehensive and unique introduction to psychology as it is relevant to those training for and working in the clergy.

This professional handbook, the definitive textbook in its field, is tailored to meet the specific needs of Christian ministers as they encounter psychology in their training and their everyday work.
