Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity
Liberty University
LaTashia Moore

Summary
The book “Integrative Approaches to Psychology and Christianity” by David N. Entwistle tries to answer the question of how psychology and theology relate to each other. Though this is has been a heated debate throughout the years, Entwistle tries to show how they integrate with each other by showing how God designed both. Entwistle shows us how the world of psychology is looked at in the secular form as well as gives the reader a view from the Christian standpoint. Christian psychology is define “as a commitment to a Christian worldview that shapes how psychology is studied and applied, and ...view middle of the document...

147). The last chapter of the book talks about the major obstacles when integrating psychology and theology together.

It was about a week or two later that I started to question God because it was all for show. Although, I had grown up in the church and knew nothing was possible unless God was a part of it I felt he had forsaken me. How could he allow a person to use him just to break another one down? I lost my faith in God, in the church, and in others. I truly felt like I had no one. It was my counselor that urge me to go back to church because she saw how important it was to me and that it was the missing part of my healing process.
