Description


Is it possible to develop such a thing as a biblical theology of mental health? How might we develop a helpful and pastoral use of scripture to explore questions of mental health within a Christian framework?

This timely and important book integrates the highest levels of biblical scholarship with theological and pastoral concerns to consider how we use scripture when dealing with mental health issues.

Chapters include:

Paula Gooder on Healing and wholeness
Joanna Collicutt on the madness of Jesus
John Swinton on the Bible in pastoral care
Walter Brueggemann on Psalms and lament

With a foreword from Archbishop Justin Welby
