Exploring Psychology and Christian Faith An Introductory Guide, 2nd ed. Paul Moes and Donald J. Tellinghuisen Drawn from more than sixty years of classroom experience, this introductory guide provides students with a coherent framework for considering psychology from a Christian perspective. Brief, ac- cessible chapters correspond to standard introductory psychology textbooks, making this an excellent supplemental text. The second edition has been updated and revised throughout based on student and instructor feedback and includes end-of-chapter questions. “In this second edition, Moes and Tellinghuisen improve on an excellent text by making it more succinct, accessible, and effective. It is a superb companion text for any introductory psychology course.” —DAVID N. ENTWISTLE, Malone University (emeritus) and North Greenville University “The second edition of Exploring Psychology and Christian Faith is exceptional. Moes and Tellinghuisen invite the reader to reflect as Christians on an array of topics in the field of psychology. An excellent resource for introducing students to the relationship between their faith and the study of psychology.” —MARK YARHOUSE, Wheaton College PRAISE FOR THE FIRST EDITION “Two accomplished teacher-scholars take us on a fascinating tour of intersecting big ideas from psychological science and biblical faith.” —DAVID G. MYERS, author of Psychology and coauthor (with Malcolm Jeeves) of Psychology through the Eyes of Faith “At long last, a fresh new voice on psychology from a Christian perspective. Moes and Tellinghuisen clearly write from a wealth of experience guiding undergraduates in their initial encounter with psychological studies. I am eager to use this book with my own students. While I do not necessarily share all of the authors’ conclusions and claims, the book is an invitation to a conversation and as such models the sort of thoughtful, challenging, respectful dialogue with which we hope students will become skilled.” —HEATHER LOOY, The King’s University College
